SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SPL WorldGroup, a leading provider of mission-critical software solutions for the global utility market, today announced that the Public Utilities Department of the city of Anaheim (both electric and water utilities) is live with SPL Enterprise Asset and Work Management (SPL EAM) as its CMMS/EAM software solution.

SPL EAM's ability to maximize efficiencies through the consolidation of several disparate legacy systems and streamline work and asset management at the city was a key deciding factor during the initial selection process. SPL's rich Compatible Unit functionality was enthusiastically embraced by Anaheim as a means to more fully streamline capital project planning, design and estimating. Additionally, SPL EAM will ensure compliance with Federal Energy Regulator Committee (FERC) standards as well as California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) accounting requirements, crucial for internal performance analysis and industry benchmarking.

"The functionality, design, and modularity of SPL EAM fits very well with our IT needs," said Rick Morella, senior systems analyst for Anaheim Public Utilities. "Now that SPL EAM is live at our facilities, we expect to significantly improve and streamline our preventive maintenance, field scheduling, inventory management and timekeeping business processes. SPL EAM is clearly not just a repair and operations tool. It focuses on the bigger picture of capital work, which helps us project and plan for the long term. This scope and capability is crucial for utilities such as ours."

"The city of Anaheim had a clear vision of what their work management system needed to accomplish," said Richard MacDonald, senior vice president of product management at SPL. "As the primary energy supplier to one of the most populous cities in California, Anaheim provided valuable input in the enhancement of SPL's compatible unit functionality, which will greatly benefit all present and future electric utility clients. The success of initiatives like these demonstrates the collaborative philosophy that SPL embodies, which enables us to establish long-term relationships with our client base."
