/// Wisconsin Municipal Electric Utility Simplifies Asset Management and Data Collection
Known locally for their excellent community service, Sheboygan Falls Utilities (SFU) recently decided to revamp their technology in order to improve asset management and data collection. By bringing mapping in-house with web maps and GNSS, and with help from Esri partner OpenPoint, SFU was able to transition from paper and CAD drawings to real-time, reliable maps of their primary and secondary networks. In addition to streamlining information sharing from field to office and better equipping line workers with updated information at their fingertips, they also improved customer care with faster and more accurate responses.
