AAC is Heading Back to the Northeast
South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority selected AAC Utility Partners to undertake an assessment of their existing CIS system (implemented in 2010) to determine if they should look at replacing it with one that is just as capable to meet their business needs but is less expensive and does not require as many human resources to maintain. Through a competitive bid process, AAC articulated how the NavigateOne™ methodology could provide the data and analysis they require. The project initiated in mid-October.
SCC RWA, located in New Haven Connecticut, provides water service to more than 115,000 customers across 20 municipalities.
Working on the Rio Grande
Looking to determine a strategic direction for their Customer Information System, the City of EL Paso, Texas selected AAC to assist with the assessment phase of their transformation project. A long-time systems and software client of AAC, El Paso is very confident with AAC’s NavigateOne™ methodology and the expectation of a data driven process that is executed with rigor. Team AAC is already engaged with El Paso in the planning project.
The City of El Paso serves approximately 220,000 water and wastewater customers.
Serving in the City of Brotherly Love

When “Clouds” are a Good Thing
DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) has been an AAC client for some time as we have been assisting them with the selection of a new CIS to replace their aging Orcom solution. Utilizing the NavigateOne™ Selection process, DC Water selected Vertex and the VertexOne solution as their new CIS. VertexOne is a CIS offering built on the SAP platform and is only offered in the “cloud.” Vertex hosts the solution for DC Water (in the cloud) and provides support (in the cloud). To increase the success for this project, DC Water selected AAC to provide Project Management Services for this aggressive implementation effort.
