HUNTSVILLE, AL: Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has come up with Intergraph NetWorks, a pliant software suite that provides utilities and communications companies with real-time access to geospatial engineering and operational data and capabilities across the enterprise. Easy and powerful to use, Intergraph NetWorks opens up a new vista in existing geospatial investments. It heightens the reach, quality and currency of enterprise information, while ameliorating business processes and capabilities.

Intergraph NetWorks’ main area of competence is to help companies that manage electric, gas, telecommunications and water networks and services with the ability to exploit network information more extensively. Intergraph NetWorks connects the enterprise to the Intergraph G/Technology network model by using web services to simplify the development and maintenance of interfaces, integrations and task oriented portals and mobile applications.  

"Intergraph NetWorks enhances the value businesses can derive from existing geospatial investments. It expands their reach beyond the core users – making the network model more accessible," said Dan Retzer, Senior Vice President, Global Product Development, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. Companies can enhance business agility and make quicker decisions by using this information and can better adapt to ever changing needs.

Intergraph NetWorks uses the network model and business rules established in Intergraph G/Technology and establishes a foundation of standards-based web services that provide the broadest range of users and software to access, visualize, update and add network data. It offers far greater flexibility and choice than web mapping and mobile GIS tools in how data and functionality are accessed and deployed and provides a range of critical enterprise capabilities out-of-the-box.

The suite consists of Intergraph NetWorks Portal and Intergraph NetWorks Mobile. Intergraph NetWorks deploys websites that combine authentic and latest network engineering and useful information with rich capabilities, aiding users to browse, visualize, analyze and add network data. Intergraph NetWorks Portal through a configurable and easy-to-use interface provides a complete picture that is specific to business functions and users across the enterprise. It deploys task-oriented apps on consumer mobile devices that securely connect the field to current and authoritative network information. Intergraph NetWorks Mobile enhances adoption rates and diminishes the total cost of ownership for field solutions by using the ubiquity of consumer mobile platforms.
