Esri Partners Join Forces to Help Organizations Seamlessly Manage Every Infrastructure Asset: Indoors, Outdoors, Above and Below Ground
Cartegraph has announced the acquisition of PenBay Solutions, LLC, a leading provider of facility management and space planning software. Combining PenBay’s location-centric facility management capabilities with Cartegraph’s asset, work and resource management solutions provides public and private organizations with a truly comprehensive infrastructure management platform.
Local governments, utilities, universities and commercial campus owners can use this Esri-powered platform to manage operations and maintenance activities across their buildings and infrastructure portfolio. In turn, software users will optimize the performance of their assets, drive efficiencies, improve space utilization, maximize resources, and reduce costs through smarter, data-driven decisions.
“Infrastructure owners have an incredibly important job. Roads, buildings, parks, and water networks are long-term investments that require ongoing optimization,” said Cartegraph CEO Josh Mallamud. “That’s why we focus on embedding domain expertise in our products and services and invest so heavily in customer success. We develop, implement and support our platform—partnering with our customers over the long term to ensure they are successful in their efforts to become the best possible stewards of their infrastructure."
By extending the power of Esri’s ArcGIS platform to every facet of indoor, outdoor, above- and below-ground infrastructure management, organizations will improve the performance of their infrastructure assets, extend their useful lives and optimize resource allocation on operations and maintenance activities. Whether it’s repaving a road or fixing a leaky faucet, maintenance crews efficiently inspect the condition of any asset, receive work assignments and track resources—like labor, equipment and materials—from anywhere. Leaders tap into real-time dashboards and a two-way ArcGIS integration to weigh scenarios, monitor budgets, build capital plans, optimize space allocation, create move plans and tell their stories to elected officials and constituents.
“We joined forces with Cartegraph because it is hands down the best operations and maintenance platform on the market,” said Bill Barron, Cartegraph managing director of buildings and infrastructure and former CEO of PenBay Solutions. “It was important to us to team up with a company who shared our location-centric and customer success-focused DNA. By bringing these teams and solutions together, we’re creating a powerful platform that empowers infrastructure owners to drive high-performance operations of their mission-critical assets.”
All Cartegraph products are built on the foundational technology of Esri. With a map on every screen, the platform leverages location as the unifying data point—driving tightly integrated workflows for indoor and outdoor asset, work and space management.
“Indoor GIS is an area where business partners really help to add value to ArcGIS,” said Robert Laudati, director, Global Partners and Alliances, Esri. “We have been working with the PenBay team in this area for many years and are excited about how Cartegraph, also a long-standing strategic partner, will be able to bring new capabilities to our Esri customers through the combination of Cartegraph and ArcGIS Indoors.”
