Intergraph Corporation announced Empresas Publicas de Medellin E.S.P. (EEPPM), Colombia's multi-utility company, is upgrading its successful FRAMME-based geofacilities management system to Intergraph's G/Technology, the next-generation enabling core of a Geospatial Resource Management (GRM) system. EEPPM manages and maintains five distribution networks - electric, gas, water, wastewater and telecommunications for 2.5 million customers throughout Colombia. The open architecture of G/Technology will enable EEPPM employees to easily leverage and share data, further streamlining day-to-day activities and processes for provisioning and maintaining its service delivery networks. Using G/Technology, EEPPM can more efficiently and cost effectively manage their assets and resources.

G/Technology will provide EEPPM with a corporate asset database to further facilitate integration among key IT systems, including its corporate and business environment systems - CIS, materials and maintenance system, SCADA, and engineering analysis systems. Additionally, it will give EEPPM high-performance tracing capabilities for all networks, thus a quicker method to identify and resolve outages and speed response to customers. With Intergraph's GeoMedia(R) technology EEPPM will manage the landbase information that is shared between the five distribution networks.

Last year, EEPPM was inducted into Intergraph's 100 Percent Club for completing the digital conversion of all their network data - approximately two million features. EEPPM selected Intergraph's technology because of the company's proven reliability in solutions and services throughout the 15-year relationship between the two companies.
