“Our utility customers know the hidden costs and inefficiencies of doing business without a centralized drawing management and collaboration solution that aligns engineering, field service, operations, and construction,” says Scott Lamond, vice president at Synergis Software. “With our Adept engineering document management solution, utilities will increase asset reliability, improve operational efficiency, reduce compliance and safety risk, and lower operating costs.”
Paul Melzen, director, Eversource substation engineering and design says, “In addition to configuration control, drawing management has become more and more critical to reliability and compliance. If the drawings don’t represent what’s in the field, it’s just a human error trap.”
“When the people in the field can’t find the correct drawing, it can result in more man-hours spent to resolve an issue, which can have a direct impact on our customers,” adds Melzen. “Moreover, if we’re designing and bidding on a project using inaccurate drawings, we’re exposing ourselves to the risk of change orders from our engineering and construction contractors. Not only can these issues have significant cost impacts to the company, but they can also impact compliance, reliability and safety.”
Synergis Adept is a proven solution used by utility customers such as Con Edison, Northwestern Energy, San Diego Gas & Electric, Dominion Energy, Emera Companies, Lansing Board of Water and Light, California Water Authority, Platte River Authority, Turlock Irrigation District and more.
