Critigen’s Lemur™ technology brings the power of business-centric mapping to the apps your team utilizes to get their job done. Business-centric mapping is the linking of business data and GIS data to provide workers the information they need, when and where they need it, all on a map.
These business-centered maps are based on Esri technology, but eliminate the need for you to do any GIS programming. Just add a new Lemur™ configuration or update the values in the existing configuration to add new map layers, define how to connect business objects (like Work Orders and Notifications) to GIS features, and define which features are shown and what attributes are visible.
Lemur™ apps are ready for use in the real world. Lemur™ Geocache helps you manage the amount of GIS data sent to each device, prepares it for offline use, and limits the impact to your enterprise GIS so your GIS team just keeps working. Since Lemur™ uses real Esri GIS, there's no need to worry about incompatibilities or disconnects with your corporate GIS.
This platform seamlessly integrates with the applications you already use for day-to-day business, including asset maintenance and management apps, mobile apps, field data collection, and assessment apps. Whether you buy these apps from a vendor, or build them in-house, Lemur™ provides future-proof control, configuration, and efficiencies for geo-enabled capabilities in mobile your mobile applications.
Lemur™ is available for use in a number of real-world scenarios. Explore the options below for more information.

Mini Case Study: Mobile Asset Management for Electric Distribution
As part of a leading Canadian electric utility’s enterprise mobile workforce modernization project, Critigen implemented an enhanced map control with offline capabilities that allows workers to visualize and manage SAP assets and work locations. As part of SAP’s Work Manager™, the map seamlessly integrates with the mobile workflow to streamline work activities and better manage assets.
Working Smarter — Viewing assets on the map enables field workers to see assets in their true location relative to connected assets and customer locations. Crews can avoid unnecessary trips to assets that don’t require maintenance and they can also see other crew locations on the map for better coordination and mutual aid.
Better Information — GIS and SAP data is synchronized nightly and delivered via Critigen’s Lemur™ Geocache as an offline cache to the mobile device, allowing workers to click on the map for timely asset information. An enhanced as-built editing tool allows workers to update electrical asset information during installation.
Saving Time — With a single application for mapping and work, crews can spend less time on the screen and more time installing and maintaining electric assets. Office workers can spend less time re-keying information from paper forms, with a 6-month reduction in processing time.
Mini Case Study: Mobile Asset Management for Gas Transmission System
For a very large US-based combined natural gas and electric utility, Critigen delivered the GIS integration and Map Control for an asset management mobile application.
The application resulted in the 300 end users having a fully integrated, easy-to-use application that sped up their preventative and corrective maintenance programs for its gas transmission compressors. The application made it easier for the end users and it also had the benefit of increasing data quality, which resulted in making regulatory compliance simpler for the utility. Using Critigen’s Geocache technology, the end users were also able to work in remote areas in “offline mode” without any intervention on their part – it just worked.
Field crews commented, “Being able to see my work on an interactive map on my iPad as well as being able to start, work on, and complete my work orders made a huge difference to my workday.
