Narrative: Employee safety, site security, business analytics, relationship management, regulatory compliance and improved efficiency are important areas of investment for most utilities. What they have in common is that their effective implementation relies on a robust capability to collect, manage and use spatial information. While most utilities have invested heavily in GIS capabilities that utilize the location of resources and assets outdoors there has not been the same level of investment with regards to indoor locations.
