Trimble Introduces Outage Management Planning and Response Solution for Natural Gas Utilities

GRAPEVINE, Texas, May 19, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the availability of Trimble® GasOMS™ system, an integrated outage management solution that enables natural gas utilities to model and simulate outage planning, streamline service restoration workflows, automate communications during service interruptions, and enhance Distribution Integrity Management Plan (DIMP) reporting. By using Trimble GasOMS, natural gas utilities can reduce operational costs, keep customers better informed during outages, and support regulatory reporting requirements with compliance data that is traceable, verifiable and defensible.

The announcement was made at the American Gas Association Operations Conference & Biennial Exhibition.

"Trimble GasOMS is an ideal solution to enable natural gas utilities to better manage risk, enhance crew and public safety, streamline communications and improve operational performance," said Matti Syyrakki, business area director, Trimble Energy North America. "Trimble GasOMS is the latest release in our suite of software applications designed to transform utility operations by integrating field and back office systems and automating workflows across the enterprise."

Trimble GasOMS allows gas utilities to streamline restoration workflows by integrating and automating communication between operations personnel and field crews. The outage management solution can identify affected customer locations and assist in prioritizing critical customers, such as hospitals and schools. Trimble GasOMS can also integrate with other solutions, such as Trimble Field Inspector, a robust maintenance and inspection solution for optimizing utility field operations.

For large-scale outages, Trimble GasOMS can provide natural gas utilities with a workflow process to better coordinate multi-agency support for more effective response and service restoration. Trimble GasOMS also supports a Web-based outage map to keep customers and the general public informed of service outage status and can integrate to messaging systems to send notices to customers.

By logging tasks and interactions during an outage, Trimble GasOMS can create a digital historian to provide real-time information for the gas utility incident commander. The digital historian can then be used in the DIMP and other compliance reporting requirements as well as after action reviews and analysis, training and process improvement. The solution can integrate with other Trimble and third-party applications including work order management, Customer Information System (CIS), Geographic Information System (GIS) and field data collection solutions.

Trimble GasOMS is the latest release in a suite of Trimble Energy products and solutions that address a broad range of smart utility network operations—from planning, design and construction to operations and maintenance.
