Employees to have access to intelligent infrastructure model for information about the network
The Grant County Public Utility District has selected the integrated Autodesk utility software to design and manage its electric distribution and fiber telecommunications networks.
Autodesk software is expected to help Grant PUD to design its networks, reduce operating costs to maintain the networks, and provide the utility with a foundation for future growth.
With the Autodesk software, Grant PUD employees across all departments will be able to access and query an intelligent infrastructure model for information about its network.
Once implemented, the new system is expected to help the utility to increase control and interactivity among key operations, including customer service, engineering, right-of-way, warehouse and dispatch. The software will also provide interoperability with Grant PUD’s new financial and work order systems.
Bill Goodson, vice president of government at Autodesk, said: Public utilities like Grant PUD have selected our infrastructure modeling solutions because we understand utility design and how to make use of valuable design information across the network lifecycle. With Autodesk utility software, Grant PUD will add more intelligence to its work processes to create, refurbish, and maintain its network assets. This will help reduce its operating costs and improve its customer service levels.
