Plan, design and build
Plan, design and build your infrastructure with smart decision support. Manage underlying processes, and communicate with involved stakeholders within integrated GIS solutions.
Develop your infrastructure
To level up the capacity and performance of your infrastructure in order to meet future requirements, you need smart decision support combined with agile and process-oriented workflows. Whether you plan to expand or improve your existing infrastructure, we enable you to design and assess your projects with cost- and risk based decision support - before you share them online with on-site contractors and installers.
Map-oriented and user-friendly applications give all involved stakeholders in the build process secure and precise project information from the planning stages to execution of work, quality control and final as-built documentation.
Design and assess alternative plans to initiate the most profitable improvements and expansions.

Monitor and operate your complete critical infrastructure to ensure safe work operations, quick response time and effective public communications.
Connect with your infrastructure
Your customers depend heavily on your deliveries. They have low tolerance for errors, and even lower tolerance for poor information handling when shutdowns occur.
To stay in control of your distribution and handle even unexpected events, you need to communicate with your network of components – all the way down to the most remote end user.
Our distribution management solution enables you to connect and interact with your infrastructure based on your existing network information system (NIS) data: Monitor the operation of your infrastructure to bypass its weaknesses, utilise its strengths, and communicate with its users.
To help you visualise, understand and manage even the most complex structures, we build our applications with your work processes in mind, wrapped in a simple graphical diagram- and map-based user interface.
Monitor planned and unplanned events in your infrastructure from online maps and diagrams.
Monitor notifications from customer service centre and operational units.
Notify affected customers instantly by phone of errors or maintenance work.
Reduce downtime and prioritise the most critical and costly repairs when shutdowns occur.
Plan your field operations, create work orders and allocate the work team – safely and efficiently.

For a municipality, communicating with inhabitants is crucial, whether it is providing or receiving information. A large part of this communication...
Maintenance and replacement
Register maintenance needs online from the field, set up maintenance plans and work packages, analyse risk, calculate costs, and manage your work orders.
Know your weak spots
To stay strong and alert, you must know your weak spots. An investment in maintenance and replacement strategies is an investment in future income, robustness, HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) and customer satisfaction.
Critical infrastructures are complex, and often subject to high stress levels, challenging environments and extreme weather conditions. Yet, we are able to predict these factors and process them to trigger cost- and risk-based maintenance plans.
Our trade experts incorporate your business strategy and best practices into an automated maintenance solution, using your existing infrastructure asset data. Based on this information, the system recommends when and where to initiate actions. Simultaneously, your field operators are able to feed the system directly with updated asset condition data from online tablets, to trigger both future and immediate actions.
No matter your maintenance needs and strategies, we help you incorporate and automate them, and ensure that all stakeholders in your organisation make smart and consistent decisions.
Utilise existing asset data from your current GIS (component registry, buildings and structures).
Plan preventative and corrective maintenance, and compile maintenance work packages.
Register, order and follow-up maintenance tasks, e.g. work orders.
Map and register required renewal of technical facilities and infrastructure.
Utilise decision support for maintenance, repair and replacement of critical infrastructure.
Use balanced scorecards for network performance monitoring to benchmark the efficiency and productivity of your best practices.
Visualise and present the information in tabular reports, through geographical displays or in the form of schematic systems, including ERP and SCADA-systems.
