The Benefit of a Cooperative Approach

The Great Lakes RCAP GIS Team is a true cooperative in that we work alongside communities to achieve goals related to the collection, mapping and maintenance of utility assets. We believe that the most sustainable product leverages the expertise of both utility personnel and our dedicated GIS staff.  Recognizing that communities are the owners of their data, Coop membership includes support and training to empower communities to utilize their data to the maximum extent possible.

We make GIS possible for all communities!

Customized Options

Different communities have different needs and budgets, therefore we will work with you to provide a system that meets your needs!

Through our customized web and mobile apps, based on the ESRI platform, we will create a Dashboard to monitor preventive maintenance activities like valve exercising and create, monitor and track work orders.

We also have an option for a robust asset management software, Kona,  from a partnership with the Confluence Group.
