The Power Commission of the City of Saint John (Saint John Energy) in Saint John, New Brunswick, recently selected ESRI’s ArcGIS software as its enterprise geographic information system (GIS), and ESRI Canada to implement and support the GIS.
Saint John Energy is a municipal electric utility that has been serving the city since 1922. As a non-generating utility, its primary responsibility is the distribution of electricity and customer service for approximately 35,000 customers.
The new GIS is part of Saint John Energy’s overall integrated enterprise application which also includes a management information system (MIS) and customer information system (CIS).
“Saint John Energy will have a common, well-integrated enterprise solution that will support our overall integrated enterprise application which includes CIS, MIS and GIS,” said Darin Lamont, Saint John Energy’s manager of engineering. “This integrated approach will help us to meet current and future departmental needs.”
The Saint John Energy Commission chose ESRI’s ArcGIS platform consisting of ArcInfo, ArcSDE and ArcView. They also selected Miner & Miner’s Enterprise ArcFM, Designer and DistOps.
