Updated Storm Water Modeling Application Set Released

Innovyze’s InfoNet 12.5 improves the software’s analytics, management tools

Innovyze, a manufacturer of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, announced the release of InfoNet V12.5 and InfoNet Mobile V12.5, a water, wastewater and storm water smart asset performance modeling application set. The latest release adds significant customer-requested functionality that improves the software’s business analytics and management tools. Utilities will have more ways to lengthen the life of their assets and improve system performance.  

InfoNet is a purpose-built asset management modeling and data analysis system for water distribution, wastewater collection and storm water networks. The software enables users to manage, integrate, validate, analyze and report on their network data to provide accurate, up-to-date, auditable information on network infrastructure and performance. The formats are easy to use and comprehend. InfoNet ensures informed, swift and cost-effective decision making for day-to-day operational management as well as long-term network planning. It also enables users to integrate a host of different applications and data sets that they already use, including generic GIS, corporate databases, maintenance management systems, field data systems, SCADA, hydraulic modeling/analysis software and other corporate applications. This integration ensures managers have a clear picture of their network infrastructures. The software can also directly integrate to the Esri ArcGIS (9.x-10) platform.

InfoNet gives engineers the ability to analyze all aspects of the network life cycle. Users can call on its robust query engine to filter, sort and make complex selections based on criteria related to their underground assets. It also has the unique ability to query against field surveys (CCTV, manhole inspections, smoke testing, valve inspections, etc.) and other events related to network assets.

The InfoNet geospatial environment also lets the user create vivid thematic maps with flexible symbology and rich detail. Its built-in report generator comes with dozens of standard reports and allows users to quickly build custom reports and graphs against any piece of data stored in the system.

InfoNet Mobile provides users with a complete field management solution. The mobile technology links field workers seamlessly and securely to InfoNet asset and data management software. Field staff have all of the information that they need and avoid double-handling data. 

InfoNet V12.5 allows users to create an external data portal to either an Esri ArcGIS or other ODBC compliant database. Users can configure any InfoNet object to relate directly to data in a third-party system. For example, in a distribution system, meter assets can be linked to the billing system so data can be viewed within InfoNet without duplicating data across systems. InfoNet asset data can also be connected to an ArcGIS database without having to leave the geodatabase format. Other improvements include a robust attachments manager, support for bulk importing of multiple CCTV databases, enhanced CCTV defect labeling, and additional objects to support storm water systems and fats/oils/grease (FOG) inspections.
