BROOMFIELD, CO, Nov. 19, 2013 -- The Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) of Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, will soon receive a comprehensive, intuitive GIS-centric solution for data collection and management, risk- and condition-based maintenance planning, predictive analytics, and decision analysis.

MSD selected Innovyze's InfoMaster Sewer to complete its enterprise smart asset management solution, built around ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) and Cityworks (Azteca Systems Inc., Sandy, UT). To optimize its capital improvement program and maintain the highest level of customer service, the District initiated the program aimed at getting the most for its investment. The multifaceted geocentric solution uses ArcGIS to collect and manage asset information, Cityworks to schedule and track work orders, and InfoMaster Sewer to plan and phase system improvements and develop funding strategy.

Built atop ArcGIS, InfoMaster Sewer gives utilities critical insight into all enterprise assets, their conditions and work processes, facilitating significantly better planning and control. It lets them use powerful business analytics and smart network modeling capabilities in new ways to drive higher productivity and quality while managing costs and increasing operational flexibility. Armed with these capabilities, utilities can create well-engineered condition- and risk-based capital improvement plans, optimize their infrastructures and keep them operating well into the future. InfoMaster Sewer includes components to run on desktop, web, tablet, and smartphone environments. The software is NASSCO PACP, MACP and LACP V6.0 certified.

The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati is the publicly-operated wastewater utility serving 43 out of 49 Hamilton County, Ohio political subdivisions, as well as parts of the three adjacent counties of Butler, Clermont and Warren. It has a ratepayer base of approximately 230,000 residential and commercial users and operates seven major wastewater treatment plants and more than 120 pump stations.
