New System to Facilitate Integration, Streamline Workflows and Automate Data SharingHUNTSVILLE, Ala.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sept. 20, 2005— Intergraph Corporation (NASDAQ: INGR) today announced Tampa Electric, the principal subsidiary of TECO Energy Inc., has selected Intergraph G/Technology as the enabling engine for its geospatial resource management (GRM) environment. G/Technology provides an open database architecture that will support the integration of 15 key applications, and improve data access for Tampa Electric employees, such as project planners, inspectors, drafting staff and field maintenance teams. Tampa Electric expects the GRM system, with a foundation of Intergraph's G/Electric, to improve service delivery and processes.
"Ultimately, we expect Intergraph's open and commercial off-the-shelf G/Technology to minimize the risk of our complex system integration requirements," said Regan Haines, director of Energy Delivery Engineering and Field Services, Tampa Electric. "We selected Intergraph to provide a foundation to leverage the network asset data for other systems, such as inspection, outage management and work management. As more users in the office and the field will have access to current information, we expect improvements in design, customer service, operations and maintenance costs."
Tampa Electric is upgrading its existing FRAME-based AM/FM/GIS to the more advanced G/Technology system. Intergraph's experienced services team will also provide the systems integration for Tampa Electric. The G/Technology system replaces manual processes and streamlines design, cost estimating and scheduling activities by integrating with a company's existing design, work and outage management systems. Additionally, G/Technology will be able to reduce costs through easy information exchange and access enabling timesavings and enhanced decision support.
"We continue to see increased momentum for the adoption of our G/Technology systems," said Jay Stinson, vice president and general manager, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure. "Visionary utilities such as Tampa Electric select Intergraph as the core of their GRM environment because they understand the value a fully integrated IT system provides for their business and their customers."
