TORONTO, July 9 /- Hummingbird Ltd., developer of enterprise information management systems (EIMS), today announced that Valley Center Municipal Water District (VCMWD), a public agency that provides water and sewer services to domestic, agricultural and commercial customers in Valley Center and northern San Diego County, has purchased Hummingbird Enterprise for ESRI(TM), an integrated solution with ESRI’s ArcIMS(TM) software. VCMWD staff will be able to link electronic records and documents to the agency’s geographic information system (GIS), allowing users to quickly and easily access and manage geographic data records from a web-based mapping interface.

Hummingbird Enterprise for ESRI will enable the District staff to manage and access all types of electronic assets from the Hummingbird document management repository, including images from various sources; CAD files; and geographic data associated with its GIS system, such as right-of-way agreements and sewer inspection reports. VCMWD will benefit from the two-way integration linking images and documents to specific geographic data in the ESRI system. For example, by clicking on a web-based geographic feature, employees can locate corresponding records or documents concerning a specific facility, such as inspection reports for pipelines or scanned deeds for parcels of land. The unified access will increase productivity by simplifying how employees manage, collaborate, publish and share information.

«We purchased Hummingbird Enterprise for ESRI because we are confident that it will provide the District with a secure, flexible infrastructure to search, manage and access documents and data from either the GIS or from the Hummingbird document management system,» said Patricia Garcia, GIS/Mapping Tech. III, with VCMWD. «Since our staff will be able to work in familiar environments including Windows Explorer, Outlook, WEB or Native Applications, it will minimize the learning curve, reducing administrative requirements and improving business processes. With the Hummingbird solution, we expect an enhanced level of service to our internal users.»

Version control, check-in/check-out, security, and an audit trail will assure the District staff that they are always working on the most current versions of the files, saving time in project development, eliminating duplicate efforts and improving accuracy of information.

Developed in conjunction with Farragut Systems, Inc., a full service GIS and System Integration company, Hummingbird Enterprise for ESRI provides seamless integration between ESRI’s ArcIMS software and Hummingbird DM(TM), the core application and repository for all electronic assets produced by the District staff. Documents can be referenced to projects through text-based searches as well as GIS searches.

«Government agencies such as VCMWD are regularly faced with the challenge of providing the best quality service to constituents, partners and other agencies,» said Andrew Pery, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Hummingbird Ltd. «With Hummingbird Enterprise for ESRI, VCMWD will have immediate access to all business-critical information, increasing operational efficiencies and responsiveness and improving customer relationships.»
