New System to Facilitate Integration, Streamline Workflows and Automate Data Sharing

September 21, 2005
Intergraph Corporation announced Tampa Electric, the principal subsidiary of TECO Energy Inc., has selected Intergraph G/Technology as the enabling engine for its geospatial resource management (GRM) environment. G/Technology provides an open database architecture that will support the integration of 15 key applications, and improve data access for Tampa Electric employees, such as project planners, inspectors, drafting staff and field maintenance teams. Tampa Electric expects the GRM system, with a foundation of Intergraph's G/Electric, to improve service delivery and processes.

Tampa Electric is upgrading its existing FRAME-based AM/FM/GIS to the more advanced G/Technology system. Intergraph's experienced services team will also provide the systems integration for Tampa Electric. The G/Technology system replaces manual processes and streamlines design, cost estimating and scheduling activities by integrating with a company's existing design, work and outage management systems. Additionally, G/Technology will be able to reduce costs through easy information exchange and access enabling timesavings and enhanced decision support.
