As usual, the annual Esri Electric and Gas GIS Conference was a busy event providing users and Schneider Electric alike a forum to discuss and share technology and ideas. Schneider Electric held our annual Monday night event and social where we gave a brief company update and demonstrated Orbit. We also had the Chief Technology Office from the host utility, Memphis Light, Gas and Water, come up and talk to the audience about some challenges that they faced and how our technology helped them solve those problems. The event was held at the Memphis Rock 'N' Soul Museum and the staff there was wonderful and gave our customers a great Memphis welcome.
Our Delivery and Product Management teams did a number of presentations with and without our customers that were well received. We presented with LES, ConEd, CPS, DME and PHI.
The remainder of the week was filled with meetings with our partners, our established user community and utilities looking to learn more about the ArcFM Solution, especially Designer and Responder. It was great to reconnect with many familiar colleagues, strenghten partnerships, and meet new faces. We met with more prospective clients this year than we have any other year at this conference.
