The client sought a path and provider to transform their existing Enterprise Asset Management program while maintaining all of the vital services they provide Texans every day. This utility contributes reliable power to the Electric Reliability Council of the greater Texas (ERCOT) market. They ensure power is delivered through more than 5,000 miles of transmission lines, and work to increase/preserve the water supply for more than a million people. To meet the challenge of this complex environment, the client enlisted Cohesive Solutions following a competitive selection process.
Cohesive has just completed the project by leading the users through an upgrade of Maximo V7.1 to Maximo V7.6, which includes several business process surveys, including an infrastructure analysis, performance improvement review, integrations with PeopleSoft, Datasplice and Workforce.
