GIS Solutions

SSP Innovations offers Geographic Information Systems (GIS) consulting, custom software development, and systems integration which makes up the majority of the company's business. SSP has extensive experience in the entire project life cycle from requirements gathering through deployment and training. Our focus has been on implementing industry-leading Esri technology for verticals focused on energy & utilities as well as the public sector (local/state government).

Our GIS services are broken into three primary disciplines; click on the links below to learn more about each area:

  • Core Schneider Electric & Esri Product Implementation - SSP has significant experience implementing both the Esri and Schneider Electric core products. Our engagements often start with custom data modeling, data conversion and the implementation of Esri ArcSDE, followed by the full range of applications including ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Online, and ArcGIS Engine along with the full suite of Schneider Electric products including ArcFM™, Designer™, Responder™, Fiber Manager™, Conduit Manager™, ArcFM Viewer™, and Geodatabase Manager™. Our team of experts can guide a utility through GIS implementations and upgrades from start to finish.


  • GIS Customization - SSP can lead the effort to establish the "gaps" between your business requirements and what the out-of-the-box products provide. We provide solution oriented consulting that focuses on the best solution to meet the requirements which may include a blend of software along with customizations. The customizations will fill the gaps to maximize the value of the products. Common customizations include new Esri tools for automating user interaction with the GIS data; new intranet web tools to query, view and edit the GIS data; new Schneider Electric AutoUpdaters, Validation Rules, or AutoText Elements and new batch applications to maintain the health & performance of your geodatabase or to keep your system up to date.

  • Systems Integration - Significant ROI can be achieved by integrating your GIS data to other surrounding systems. SSP has worked with utilities across the U.S. to design integrated workflows between GIS and many common utility systems including asset management, customer information system, distribution planning, inspection management, outage management, plant accounting, document management, engineering analysis, warehousing, general ledger, and work management. Automating data interaction between these systems will take your GIS implementation to a new level.

    Integrated GIS

  • GIS Pipeline Practice - GIS can be used to answer many key questions for pipeline operators. SSP expanded into pipeline in 2015 and the practice has continued to expand since that time. Esri continues to release new technology around ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing (APR) and the Utility & Pipeline Data Model (UPDM). SSP has worked closely with Esri to understand these tools and has been proactive in educating the market around how they can be utilized, how companies can migrate to these tools, and how they will fit in the future with other third party pipeline vendors. SSP also brings years of experience via our pipeline practice around PODS and the other historical leading vendor solutions.
