Enables utilities and government agencies to share and co-ordinate construction and maintenance project schedules
Envista, a provider of web-based software for infrastructure project co-ordination, has announced that the Bay State Gas Company will use its software to co-ordinate construction and maintenance projects with municipalities.
Bay State Gas, a subsidiary of NiSource, serves nearly 300,000 customers in Massachusetts. Envista software enables utilities and government agencies to share and co-ordinate construction and maintenance project schedules.
Effective co-ordination of infrastructure projects with others working in the right of way, helps prevent third-party damage to pipes, reduces unnecessary street cuts, and lessens disruption for area residents and commuters.
Rick Fiery, CEO of Envista, said: Working with Bay State Gas is an important milestone for us. It is one of the largest and oldest companies in the business, and has long served our communities here in New England. We are confident our technology will empower a new level of productivity, and facilitate demanding maintenance goals set by the utility.
For the first time, Bay State Gas and other infrastructure stakeholders will have access to real-time scheduling information resulting in better co-ordination and greater operational savings, with less disruption to the public.
