TransGrid will roll-out Mincom's Ellipse 8 enterprise asset management system as well as applications for human resources, supply chain management and field work enablement, which increases the productivity of workers on-the-go using laptops, tablets or other mobile devices.

Transgrid provides electricity to over three million households in NSW and the ACT, operating 91 substations and 12,600 kilometres of transmission lines.

TransGrid executive general manager of finance and information systems, Tony Meehan, said that it is important for the company to maximise the performance of its infrastructure and workforce.

"We selected Mincom Ellipse 8 as we believe it is currently the most robust and fully modern platform for enterprise asset management, designed specifically to meet the needs of asset-intensive businesses like ours," he said. "Mincom's field-enablement applications are tightly integrated with Ellipse 8, which will assist TransGrid's asset and work management processes in the field, where the work is being done."

"Utility companies around the world face significantly greater demand for energy due to rapid population growth, and must maximise the performance of their physical infrastructure and workforce to ensure continued reliability of service," said Greg Clark, Mincom CEO.
