Introducing utilities products for water and electricity distribution infrastructure resource management.




PowernetMaestro is an easy-to-use information system for electricity distribution that defines topology of
feeder lines, transmission lines (low and medium voltage) and transformers so that areas fed by these can be
displayed on a map, analyzed, and presented in electricity consumption reports, customer lists, feeder-
connected transformer reports, thematic maps of consumption and more.

HydronetMaestro makes the management of water and wastewater infrastructure more effective.
HydronetMaestro is GIS-based, so subscriber Information, network status, and network inventory are all
