Australian Tech Company RedEye Rolls Out Cloud-based System At Southern Nevada Water Authority Through WaterStart

System aims to drive productivity and efficiency into water utility operations

Through WaterStart, based at the Las Vegas campus of the Desert Research Institute, Australia-based tech company RedEye has completed a project with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) to implement RedEye’s cloud-based platform--RedEyeDMS--for management of engineering drawings and data with the goal of driving productivity and efficiency into its projects and operations.

RedEyeDMS helps SNWA securely store and manage its as-built drawings and engineering plans. Furthermore, the company’s collaborative, cloud-based mobility solution provides SNWA mobile access to these critical infrastructure plans from anywhere in the valley, allowing engineering records to be efficiently reviewed and updated in real-time.

“Water infrastructure management is essential to ensuring safe and reliable water delivery,” said SNWA General Manager John Entsminger. “With approximately 200,000 sets of engineering and construction plans—detailing our valley’s 6,500 miles of water transmission and delivery pipelines as well as reservoirs, pumping stations and treatment facilities—introducing this technological solution provides our engineers and field crews secure access to the engineering records they utilize daily.”

Based in Queensland, RedEye is one of Australia’s fastest-growing tech companies. In January 2017, it opened its North American headquarters in Nevada with the help of WaterStart.

“RedEye is a great example of the strong strategic partnerships that have been formed through WaterStart’s efforts to implement new technologies that help address today’s biggest water challenges,” said WaterStart Executive Director Nate Allen. “Utilizing the state’s water innovation resources and services, RedEye’s expansion to Nevada has helped to provide a solution to a major pain point water utilities are facing in their operations.”

The roll-out of RedEyeDMS within SNWA showcases various benefits including:

  • Providing fast, secure access to accurate engineering information, which helps improve organizational efficiencies and project coordination.
  • Reducing costs by mitigating project delays and overruns through streamlined engineering records management processes.
  • Managing record drawings to eliminate duplications and ensure the most current versions are securely updated, accessible and utilized.
  • Ability to update as-built records and infrastructure information through RedEyeDMS’ auditability function, which provides complete transparency of all actions performed in the system.

“We are really proud to have completed the implementation project with SNWA. We migrated a large amount of data as part of the project and were able to identify and remove over 100 thousand of duplicated files, which will help SNWA create and maintain a single source of truth for all drawings managed in RedEyeDMS,” said RedEye North America GM Roman Galikov. “With around 300 users and 12 other applications integrated with RedEyeDMS, users can access and start working with the latest versions of engineering drawings anywhere on any device. We are looking forward to working with SNWA beyond the project in line with our Customer Success plan to ensure that the organization maximizes its return on investment.”

RedEye is the first fully cloud-based and purpose-built engineering platform for asset owners and global service providers. Its technology aims to help clients improve the way they upload and manage their engineering data across the entire engineering and asset management life cycle.
