Trillium Software has been selected to help assure the quality of data and information needs by Wales & West Utilities based in the United Kingdom.

The company will use Trillium Software to provide assurance of the data supporting its asset management, regulatory reporting and financial government processes.

⿿We have 11 million records covering many thousands of assets, such as gas pipes, pumps, valves and meters,⿝ says Martin Malin, business applications manager at WWU. ⿿We must maintain these assets efficiently and safely in accordance with statutory requirements.⿝

Malin says it is vital that the information the company relies on for its operations is accurate. He says Trillium provides that assurance while delivering substantial cost savings.

Trillium Software was selected after it outperformed four other vendors on a large test file of asset data. Terms of the deal were not released.

⿿With our solution, the utility can be much more certain that it has accurate information on the location, build, and history of every single asset item,⿝ says Ed Wrazen, vice president of product marketing at Trillium Software. ⿿And it can be more confident too, that its financial performance reporting is verifiably accurate for business and regulatory management.⿝

Wales & West is a regulated gas distribution business with around 35,000 kilometers of gas distribution pipelines located in Wales and the South West of England.

Trillium is a business of San Antonio-based Harte-Hanks Inc. (NYSE:HHS), a worldwide direct and targeted marketing company.
