People – celebration of purpose

Welcome to our Spring Edition

In this edition read on to discover how Mipela GeoSolutions’ “Celebration of purpose” vision revolves around people. We provide a wrap-up of our recent X-Info User Group meeting in Adelaide, a sneak peak of the X-Info WebConnect Version 5.1 release, share a snap shot of the use of our products, our most recent client success story – Tasmanian Irrigation, X-Info DBYD Suite and Luminous Energy’s use of our GIS Services.

To think it all started because of ‘US’!

August 2017 marked the 20th Anniversary of the company’s founding, an important milestone for the company as we reflect on our heritage and accomplishments. Mipela GeoSolutions is continually investing in our talented staff and we continue to celebrate long term business relationships with our valued clients.

The quality of our team and their highly skilled work continues to receive very positive feedback from our clients who highly value our service delivery.

On reflection, the major difference I see between “old” and “new” GIS technology is that today GIS is more than cartography. GIS first generation products were foremost an application for producing good looking paper maps and doing spatial analysis with the underlying data. The current-generation GIS technology (such as our X-Info Suite) are slightly different in that they offer a project/solution-based approach, meaning that a map is just one part of the puzzle. A map is no longer the final destination, but can be the starting point to greatly enhance workflows as what I would term a “GeoSolution” to systemise or automate a client’s business processes.

Today, Mipela GeoSolutions deliver an array of services committed to our purpose of “connecting people with information”. We have fully embraced the sectors progress with our focus on how technology can meet the needs of our clients using our X-Info suite of software.

A warm thank you to all of our team (past and present), suppliers, partners and clients for your support over the past 20 years.

We look forward to seeing our clients in Cairns 14 – 17 October for the 2017 Australian Pipeline Gas Association Convention. Pop-in and say “Hi” at Stand 78. We will be showcasing how we can assist our clients to better manage their assets.

In closing, I would like to acknowledge and welcome our most recent new clients Edgen Murray Australia, Spiecapag Australia, Superloop, Goldwind Australia, SA PowerNetworks, Sydney Desalination Plant and Ventia. We look forward to continuing our purpose of “connecting people with information”.
