South Jersey Industries (SJI) has reached the user acceptance testing milestone for a major IT program to migrate its gas utility information systems from Southern Company. In July 2018, SJI purchased Elizabethtown Gas and Elkton Gas from Southern Company. As part of this acquisition, SJI has been implementing 35 enterprise systems including billing, work management, customer service, finance, SCADA, GIS and others. Critigen is supporting SJI in this ambitious program by implementing the latest Esri GIS technology including ArcGIS Pro, the Utility Network, the Utility Pipeline Data Model (UPDM) 2018, and both Maximo Spatial and Salesforce integrations. Go Live for this program is scheduled for January 2020.

“Critigen has been a great partner in this important program. Their technical depth in Esri’s Utility Network and newest technology coupled with pragmatic project management has helped us deliver great products to our operation unit while keeping to our schedule. Critigen is always eager to partner with SJI and each of our consulting vendors to ensure the best solution for SJI.” — Leonard Brinson Jr., VP and Chief Information Officer
