There are a lot of solutions we couldn’t bring to market without the help of our partners:
Dial Before You Dig is a free national referral service designed to prevent damage and disruption to the vast underground pipe and cable networks which provides Australia with essential services.
In 2001 Mipela developed an automated response system, X-Info DBYD suite, to complement the Dial Before You Dig national referral service. By automating the processing of the enquiries for the asset owners, X-Info DBYD suite brings efficiency and control to protecting their underground assets.
Mipela has also worked closely with Dial Before You Dig to develop its Infrastructure Damage Reporting tool, a national data collection and reporting tool that assists to build a comprehensive picture in relation to damage incidents, to identify opportunities for improvement and to measure the progress of related efforts. The results of this initiative will be used to develop ongoing educational programs and best practices to potentially reduce future damages and lead to a safer environment.

In 2013 Mipela GeoSolutions and MC Global, a leading provider of Enterprise Maintenance Management Solutions, announced a strategic partnership.
Mipela GeoSolutions’ product, X-Info Maps, is now available as an embedded component to MC Global’s offerings. This integration gives MC Global clients the ability to link to geospatial data from their Corporate Geographic Information System (GIS), and empowering them to visualise and analyse information on a map, in a manner that cannot be achieved using traditional reporting.
This additional functionality allows location enablement of Maintenance Connection information and work order development, and client ability to create and manage work orders spatially. The creation of new assets into Maintenance Connection from existing GIS objects is also now available.
The integration of the two products gives users a more accurate reflection of real world circumstances to visualise trends which will allow organisations to streamline their asset management operations and make better business decisions.
The location enablement of Maintenance Connection information and work orders, leverages clients’ investment in GIS and improves work planning and analysis while eliminating the need for data duplication.

In December 2010 Sentanil Systems was founded when it acquired Epic Energy’s pipeline construction management software modules:
Sentanil Systems is headed by Mipela’s Hayden McDonald and co owned by product support specialist, John Quigley. Hayden and John have a long history of GIS and database development in the pipeline industry.
Complemented with Mipela’s suite of web based GIS tools, there is now a full range of integrated GIS and database modules for the gas pipeline industry – from project feasibility and design to construction and eventually through to operation and maintenance – that provide asset management tools for the total lifecycle of a pipeline.
Sentanil began as a pipe tracking and traceability database created during the construction of the South West Queensland pipeline in 1995. Also at that time the first GIS was developed for the Australian pipeline industry, named SWQGIS. These systems were developed by a team headed by John Girle, who was passionate about data capture and integrity for the pipeline industry. John extended the boundaries to not only include the pipe/weld AS 2885 requirements, but also the cultural heritage, environment and land aspects of a project.
John was tragically killed whilst performing helicopter survey work in the Northern Territory in 2002. John would be proud that his legacy is well and truly continuing.
Since SWQP, there have been many projects where the software has been used. Thousands of kilometres of pipe, weld, coating and as-built data have been scanned, recorded and checked across each state in Australia, and overseas.
Recent key pipelines projects have included Enertrade’s North Queensland Pipeline, DBNGP Looping, QSN Link and QSN3 Looping, TNGP, Roma Brisbane Looping for constructors such as Nacap, McConnell Dowell, WDS, Saipem, on behalf of clients including DBP, Epic Energy, Jemena, APA and Santos.
