15 April 2008 -- Wallingford Software announces today the release of InfoNet v 9.0, the latest version of its asset management software solution for the water and wastewater industries. Analysis of water network data and integration of network data with other corporate systems dominate a long list of new and enhanced features.
InfoNet’s strengths in water network data integration and analysis has led many water utility departments to embrace the solution, including Asset Planning, Asset Performance and Control, Operations and Engineering departments.
V9.0 incorporates a wealth of new and enhanced features of benefit to this wide constituency of users. In particular Stuart Dodd, InfoNet’s Global Product Manager, believes that InfoNet v9.0 will help utilize resources effectively and aid external accountability:
“The ability to review and analyze historic network assets, plan new rehabilitation and repair projects, monitor progress and report fully to industry standards ensures that water and waste water utilities not only target their resources to their best advantage but ensure that regulatory reporting meets current and future transparency and audit requirements.”
InfoNet v9.0 includes a number of enhancements to the collection of network data including the ability to incorporate the results of individual Drain Test surveys into InfoNet and the ability to link and analyze network events with specific properties or customers. Data analysis is enhanced through the expansion of the SQL function library and the ability for users to define which fields are to be displayed when the cursor is ‘hovered’ over a network object. It is also now possible to search for ‘missing objects’ from the external source dataset that are not recorded in the InfoNet network, and list or delete these as required in InfoNet.
Stuart Dodd concludes: “The new features and enhancements in InfoNet add greatly to the solution’s security and flexibility, as well as providing key facilities that the modern utilities, engineering consultants and contractors have requested. Specifically, the ability to provide network review, analysis and reporting tools that can deliver costed, controlled and auditable projects, will help ensure that InfoNet continues to be adopted by the worldwide water industry.”
