SPIDA Software, the trusted industry provider of structural analysis software and the first Structure Management System for Utilities, announced a partnership with Schneider Electric, the industry leader in Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions for utilities and communication providers. Together, SPIDA Software and Schneider Electric will offer tighter product integrations and joint offerings that streamline engineering and design processes, as well as simplify the challenges of traditional pole loading methods.
The integration of SPIDA Software’s SPIDAcalc with Schneider Electric’s ArcFM Designer is currently enabling utilities to validate the safety code compliance of structures while managing risks and optimizing asset investments. Customers will soon have a broader range of integrated solutions that allow them to complete tasks more efficiently and with better visibility into processes.
Ameren Illinois, an electric and gas utility, will soon leverage the integrated offering of SPIDAcalc and ArcFM Designer. Patrick Barud, supervising engineer, DDC at Ameren Illinois said, “Ameren is looking forward to implementing the integration between ArcFM Designer and SPIDAcalc to take advantage of a streamlined design process. Moving away from home-grown spreadsheets to a fully 3-D tool to analyze distribution line designs done in GWD will be a big step forward.”
“A utility’s digital journey is based on the ability of systems and solutions to closely work together and deliver a true picture of the network,” said Jay Stinson, general manager at Schneider Electric. “We’re thrilled to strengthen our partnership with SPIDA Software to deliver even better integrations and offerings that support their transformation.”
“This partnership will allow us to provide our mutual customers with a best-in-class, seamless offering as they tackle the complex challenges confronting our industry relative to structural integrity and asset health.”, said Brett Willitt, President at SPIDA Software.
