MWH Soft Inc., a global provider of water resources applications software, announced that the City of Idaho Falls, the state of Idaho's third largest city, has chosen MWH Soft's InfoWater and InfoSewer software as the foundation for developing a comprehensive ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) solution for modeling and managing its drinking water infrastructure and sanitary sewer collection system. The selection substantiates MWH Soft's leadership position in geospatial hydraulic infrastructure management in the North American market.

The City of Idaho Falls' decision to standardize on InfoWater and InfoSewer technology followed an in-depth survey and evaluation of GIS-based modeling software packages. The process included presentations by software vendor representatives to key decision makers from the City's public utilities department. The accelerated adoption rate of MWH Soft geospatial technology reflects a powerful trend among water and wastewater utilities and progressive engineering firms toward choosing MWH Soft products for their unparalleled GIS integration capabilities, interoperability, ease of use, and comprehensive set of solutions.

Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoWater and InfoSewer offer a single comprehensive, GIS-centric solution for analyzing and managing the most complex water distribution and sewer collections systems. A seamlessly integrated geospatial framework applies GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate information, coupled with the most advanced numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace. The resulting centralized, multi-function system enables world-record performance, scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment, completely eliminating the need for inefficient, unreliable data synchronization, synching schemes, or middlelink interfaces required by other software. These factors and more translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, greater efficiency, and improved designs - giving water and wastewater utilities a clear competitive advantage.
