At DistribuTECH, Trimble rolls out apps for utility network, right-of-way planning

Trimble announced availability of its Network Investment Management and Right-of-Way Management applications. The announcement was made at DistribuTECH 2015, the largest U.S. conference that focuses on the utility industry.

Trimble's Network Investment Management application enables utilities to overcome the challenges when constantly-updated information required in planning is fragmented into various calculations and systems maintained by different people across organizations.

The Right-of-Way Contract Management application allows utilities to minimize risk and simplify the cumbersome process of managing right-of-way contracts. The applications are part of Trimble's field-proven enterprise Network Information System (NIS) and Distribution Management System (DMS) platform, which is used by over 150 utilities globally.

"Trimble's utility solutions have helped us achieve industry-leading levels of capital efficiency and network reliability," said Jorma Myllymaki, Head of Operations & Network Performance at Elenia Oy, the second largest electric distribution utility in Finland. "Trimble has served as a trusted development partner of ours for 25 years."

Trimble's Network Investment Management application provides utilities with an up-to-date, cross-departmental view of network cost and value, return on network investment, project status and project efficiency. Estimated costs are updated automatically when network plans are modified, and actual project costs can be incorporated from an enterprise resource planning system. As a result, network investment information is accurate, timely and readily available.

Trimble's Right-of-Way Contract Management application utilizes NIS' open data model, automated workflows and integration with enterprise systems to streamline the process of acquiring, moving, and renewing utility rights-of-way.  Maintaining and updating rights-of-ways for utilities is a notoriously inefficient, paper-bound process due to the many internal and external entities involved.
