Lucity’s Esri User Conference Wrap-Up

Lucity was well represented for our perennial trek to the Esri User Conference (UC) convened July 14-18, 2014 in San Diego, CA. Nicole Schmidt, P.E. (Product Manager) and Luke Savage, GISP (Client Services Consultant) focused their time attending technical sessions and meetings, including getting together for our Gold Tier Partner discussions with Esri’s Seth Tribbey (Partner Manager) and MD Huq (Technical Advisor). Chris Crupi (West Region Manager), Joel Knight, P.E. (East Region Manager), and Jim Graham, P.E. (Chief Operating Officer) staffed our booth at the GIS Solutions EXPO, where they met prospective customers/partners and connected with friends from our current customer/partner community.

We were excited to support the presentation efforts of Rogelio Matta, a Lucity Client Advisory Board member and Senior Administrative Analyst with the City of Fontana, CA – a longtime Lucity customer. At one of the many technical sessions/workshops, Rogelio discussed how the City is utilizing Lucity and Esri solutions together to track water consumption for park irrigation, with the goal of saving the City significant (thousands, and perhaps millions) of dollars – a particularly apt topic in drought-stricken southern California.

Lucity also sponsored some UC-related events hosted by Esri applicable to our target market interests, including the Water User Group Pool Party and Public Works Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting.

July’s Looking Into Lucity

ACT Design Challenge>>>

As you know, Lucity has always been willing to listen to your input when it comes to future software design. Many of you can say you’ve had a hand in a feature or two, or even a new product or module. This year we’re taking from the famous “Dreamin’ With Don”sessions a little further. Do you have a brilliant idea you’d like to submit? We’d love to hear it! We’ll review submissions and narrow down the list. Then you get to present your idea to ACT attendees and convince them to vote for yours to be included in a future Lucity release!

What’s New>>>

Have you heard the news about our new, updated Support Center? Jonathan Semones, Lucity Technical Writer, was instrumental in putting together this new interface designed to make it easier for you to access information about Lucity! In our “What’s New” video this month, Jonathan will take you on a tour of the new site.

Focus On: GIS Web Map Tools>>>

We’re bringing back our “Focus On” feature with the start of a 4-part series on Lucity’s GIS tools. This month, Lucity GIS Support Specialist Melissa Armstrong goes over the tools in the GIS Web Map. This map provides a user-friendly interface to spatially view and interact with your asset and work data. Watch the first part of the series here.

Lucity + Crystal Reports Advanced Training>>>

On July 30th & 31st we’ll be holding an advanced training class for Lucity and Crystal Reports users. You can find out what the course will cover here, and register here when you’re ready. We hope to see you! If you’d like to be notified about future Beginner’s classes, please let us know.
