ITpipes, the leader for pipe inspection management software and an Esri Silver Level Partner, has earned the Release Ready Specialty by Esri.  The Release Ready Specialty designation is only given to those Esri Business partners who prove their expertise and capability in understanding, adopting, and utilizing the latest version of Esri technology.  ITpipes is currently the only pipeline inspection software on the market to have been granted this designation.

ITpipes brings geographic information systems (GIS) into workflows for agencies and contractors around the U.S. that manage wastewater, storm, and water systems.  Most large municipalities are already utilizing GIS to manage their infrastructure assets, and many smaller municipalities are in the process of implementing GIS. Therefore, it is vital for these agencies to have their critical pipeline infrastructure data integrate seamlessly into a user-friendly Esri GIS environment. The team at ITpipes works vigilantly with clients, adapting business processes to include mapping features via ITpipes Field and Office applications.  This effort allows municipalities – as well as contractors and engineers serving those municipalities – to utilize high-quality data to support operations and make informed decisions.

Al Rossmeisl, CFO at ITpipes, explains “We are delighted to have been recognized for our commitment to keeping current with Esri technology. Our CEO, Cori Criss, has preached relentlessly, since the company’s inception, that every client should have mapping when working with pipe inspection management.  This award highlights our company’s commitment to bring mapping technology to a group of workers that typically have not had this information accessible. A huge thank you to Esri for the ongoing support, service, and partnership that makes this improvement for our client base possible.”

“We are pleased to work with ITpipes as a Release Ready Specialty Silver partner,” said Robert Laudati, Director, Global Partners and Alliances, Esri. “Partners in this specialization offer industry expertise using the latest ArcGIS products. As an early adopter of Esri software releases, ITpipes is a leader that leverages the newest capabilities incorporated in their best in class pipe management solutions.”  

ITPipes is proud to have worked with Esri products since its inception. ITpipes’ highly-anticipated Q4 2020 Web Release will deliver new login features, such as Esri Federated Portal Login and ArcGIS Online Named-User Login. Existing clients can log into the support portal for more detail on features in the upcoming version release.
