City of Windom, MN selects mPower Innovations for an enterprise GIS solution to help manage their utility infrastructure
Windom, MN May 28, 2020 – On February 20th, the Utility Commission at City of Windom unanimously approved a proposal from mPower Innovations to provide a powerful enterprise GIS solution to track their electric, water, and wastewater data on one map. This system will help the City of Windom support its goal of constantly working to improve and provide reliable service to their residents.
The City of Windom will utilize mPower’s Integrator software, a powerful web-based GIS asset management and system integration application that will enable the City of Windom to view and update all of their utility assets and access critical information from one browser-based system—eliminating the tedious process of searching for information in multiple sources and maps. Moving to a GIS-based asset management system will dramatically improve communication and response time to planned and unplanned service interruptions and maintenance.
“After watching a software demonstration at an MMUA (Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association) conference, I could see their software provided the control and access that we were looking for that our existing software was lacking.” said Jason Sykora, Electric Superintendent.
Greg Calcari, the Founder of mPower Innovations added, “Partnering with mPower is going to greatly enhance the maps and data of the City of Windom’s multiple utility departments and give them the ability to take control of their own data without relying on a third-party to update their maps and data.”
The City of Windom is the latest in a growing list of Minnesota municipal customers of mPower. Despite initial delays with the Covd-19 pandemic, the city completed the onboarding process in March and now has a fully deployed GIS solution.
