Critigen, the global leader in unifying GIS and SAP data, today announced Metropolitan Utilities District of Omaha (M.U.D.) as the newest subscriber to its Lemur™ SaaS Platform. Offline access to data in the enterprise GIS will ensure M.U.D.’s field crews can access essential engineering and location information in the event of emergency, and in network dead zones, while reducing cellular data costs.

Lemur™ will empower our people in the field by providing consistent access to GIS data regardless of the cellular network availability” said Raied Stanley, Metropolitan Utilities District Vice President of Information Technology Services. “As field crews respond to job sites and emergencies, they will have comfort in knowing that their critical GIS data is available even if cellular connectivity is not available. When cellular service is available the iPads will be updated with the latest GIS data available via a secured cloud environment.”

Critigen is delivering Lemur™ with a simple, offline mobile application that ensures the security of the data provided. The Lemur™ Platform allows easy provision of GIS data to the mobile devices through a centralized configuration that will ensure users have the data they need with controls to ensure they get correct, current data. Adoption of Lemur™ for offline GIS viewing also allows M.U.D. to leverage its investment into a direct integration with its recently implemented mobile work management solution, SAP Work Manager.
