BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2012) - Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of enterprise right-of-way (ROW) coordination solutions via the web, today announced that Reading, Pa.-based UGI Utilities, Inc. has selected the Envista Enterprise Project Infrastructure Coordination Platform to enhance its outreach and project coordination efforts with local municipalities. Piloting the program in the city of Allentown, UGI will use Envista's cloud-based platform to improve communications and exchange of project information regarding natural gas infrastructure projects as part of the Company's facility replacement program.
UGI is proactively moving forward with automated project coordination in Allentown to increase knowledge and awareness of project schedules and locations for municipal officials. With its visual web environment, the Envista Enterprise ROW Coordination Platform enables utility and municipal representatives to track a project's status in real time, automatically trigger notifications of project changes, and instantaneously share online information.
Robert Krieger, Vice President - Operations, UGI Utilities, said, "UGI has a long-standing municipal outreach program that is conducted within its service territories aimed at coordinating construction projects. The Envista platform will enhance this effort by providing detailed project information to Allentown municipal representatives via the web and allowing users to visually map a project's geographic location with the click of a mouse. Assuming a successful pilot program in Allentown, we plan to encourage the use of Envista in other municipalities across our service territories."
Brad Steer, Envista's Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, added, "Envista enthusiastically supports UGI's efforts to improve communication and coordination with Allentown and the other communities it serves. With our 100 percent web-based environment, city officials are afforded anywhere, anytime access to utility project details. Our versatile platform also enables Allentown to load information about roadwork projects into Envista to coordinate its projects and avoid construction conflicts. Our goal is always to help utilities and municipalities streamline project coordination to save money and time, as well as reduce environmental impact."
