mPower provides new GIS solutions for municipalities
IRON MOUNTAIN – Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Iron Mountain, mPower Innovations is a leader in the geospatial industry.
Earlier this year, mPower was featured in the Michigan Municipal Electric Association’s monthly Currents publication for its geographic information system solution for the city of Wakefield.
The Upper Peninsula city is now able to view and update all of its utility assets and access critical information through a single browser-based system.
In Minnesota, the city of Windom is the latest in a growing list of municipal customers.
On Feb. 20, the city’s Utility Commission unanimously approved a proposal from mPower to provide an enterprise GIS solution to track its electric, water, and wastewater data on one map. This eliminates the tedious process of searching for information in multiple sources and maps, dramatically improving response times to planned and unplanned service interruptions and maintenance.
“After watching a software demonstration at an MMUA (Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association) conference, I could see their software provided the control and access that we were looking for that our existing software was lacking.” said Jason Sykora, electric superintendent.
Greg Calcari, the founder of mPower Innovations added, “Partnering with mPower is going to greatly enhance the maps and data of the city of Windom’s multiple utility departments and give them the ability to take control of their own data without relying on a third-party to update their maps and data.”
mPower is a full-service, one-stop-shop for utilities and organizations at any stage of GIS and Smart Grid integration. They help their customers move from paper or basic digital maps to fully integrated, GIS-based operations and engineering applications.
