ARMA Vancouver Hosts “Using GE Smallworld and FileNet to Manage Engineering Records”

From ARMA Vancouver:

Please join the Vancouver Chapter of ARMA International for our November event “Using GE Smallworld and FileNet to Manage Engineering Records.”

Fortis BC is using GE Smallworld and FileNet to manage a large portion of the design and construction records sets related to building gas system assets in British Columbia. Smallworld is a Geographical Information System (GIS) which provides users with an interface to view gas system data in a geographical based interface. FileNet is a record management software which stores the underlying records. See how these two systems work, and why employees are praising both systems. Learn what worked, what didn’t work, and what is planned for the future.
