Schneider Electric, the industry leader in Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions for utilities and communication providers, announced the release of ArcFM Designer 11.1.4.
This release is at the forefront of new ArcGIS platform capabilities with its support of the Utility Network, as well as the Utility and Pipeline Data Model (UPDM).
ArcFM Designer 11.1.4 is the next generation of Graphic Work Design, providing engineers with a purpose-built application that supports the entire design lifecycle with simplicity, efficiency and intelligence. Release 11.1.4 is the first to support gas networks with functionality that seamlessly adjusts based on the user’s design. Users can now efficiently sketch new gas assets, abandon existing assets, generate material lists and update the GIS with new design information without needing to redraw.
“ArcFM Designer XI continues to evolve and enhance quickly, building on its foundation as the primary design tool for any utility,” said Jay Stinson, general manager at Schneider Electric. “With support for both the Utility Network and the UPDM, utilities that leverage Designer 11.1.4 are at the leading edge of new ArcGIS platform capabilities that are revolutionizing the design and construction process.”
ArcFM Designer XI is part of the ArcFM Solution XI Series, an ecosystem of applications that streamline the design and construction workflow, enabling utilities to get work done more efficiently. ArcFM Editor XI, ArcFM Web XI and ArcFM Mobile XI fill out the rest of the ecosystem and offer the most comprehensive utility GIS solution available today. The result – streamlined workflows, minimized use of paper and a reduced work backlog, enabling utilities to address the challenges facing today’s digital environment.
