ABILENE, Texas – April 30, 2013 — Milsoft Utility Solutions, Inc., Milsoft Utility Solutions and GeoDigital International have successfully passed interoperability tests for the interface between Milsoft’s E&O System, including its Geographic Information System (GIS), and GeoDigital’s Work Studio StakeOut in compliance with the MultiSpeak® 3.0 standard.
GeoDigital’s WorkStudio creates and manages work orders with detailed design data based on construction unit standards, existing GIS feature data, ancillary facility data and spatial drafting tools. The Milsoft Integration Server can accept staked work orders in either the designed state or the as-built state for incorporation in the Milsoft E&O System, including GIS, OMS, and Engineering Analysis (EA). “This is one of the most complicated MultiSpeak integrations that we have completed to date.” said Milsoft Executive Vice President Luis Malavé, “This level of integration ensures that a utility’s engineering and operations are automatically kept up-to-date with detailed field design in real time.”
