Technology Enablement

Energy and natural resource agencies can realize significant returns through targeted investments in technology enablers.

Likewise, the Department of Homeland Security has issued industry-specific guidance (i.e. Water and Wastewater Systems Sector) which agencies are encouraged to pursue.

Furthermore, technology providers (i.e. plant control system integrators) are often a decade or more behind, not only in the technology they provide, but the manner in which professional services are delivered.

iMC has an industry proven, multifaceted approach for assisting agencies in developing a technology strategic plan, improving technology operating models, and meeting regulatory objectives.

Case Study

Through a business process improvement project, and with minimal investment, one utility was able to leverage technology they already owned to transform paper inspections to an electronic method. The result…

  • Inspection time was reduced from 75 to less than 9 minutes per inspection
  • 992 annual man-hours were recovered (50% of an FTE)
  • Generated $39,038 in annual value
  • 5 Year ROI: $195,194
