which is essential in emergency situations. It delivers significant user interface enhancements, including special indicators and configu-
rable order icons, saving and sharing of WorkSpace views, free text search, color-coded geofences and in-row editing of grid repeatables.
A new suite of software
solutions from GE uses
the Predix™ operating system to address aging infrastructure, manpower constraints, water conservation and other challenges.
In collaboration with American Water and MWH
Global (now part of Stantec), the software ad-dresses pipeline health, storm and sewer management, and water plant efficiency. The company’s
SaaS proof of concept digitally maps total pipeline
health and provides proactive risk identification.
Additional software will utilize level sensors and
mapping to enable faster reactive maintenance
and increased proactive maintenance to reduce
overflow frequency and number. GE’s InSight™
asset performance management solution optimizes water treatment plant assets and operations.

Mobile asset management
The Itron mobile solution is a data collection and
field asset management solution that allows utilities
to use the Itron mobile app on the device of their
choice for automated meter reading and manu-
al data collection. Capabilities include the ability
to capture photographs as a part of the meter-
reading process and utilize cloud-based maps on
all devices to display route and meter data. Meter
readers can always be connected, which allows
supervisors to manage their mobile workforce re-
motely and easily reassign work. Accurate data
collection ensures accurate bills
and satisfied customers, while
audible and vibration warnings
alert employees of hazards.
