InfoNetrix, a utility automation/IT market research and consulting firm, has compiled a comprehensive database of utility automation/IT installations that provide detailed information about thousands of utility installations. This new product, called UBID™ (Utility Benchmark Installations Database) is derived from a proprietary database developed by InfoNetrix over several years through direction interaction with utilities.

UBID details projects at more than 3,000 electricity, gas, water, wastewater and combination utilities. The information contained in each UBID module allows utility managers, engineers and planners of new or enhanced automation/IT projects to compare their plans with those of other utilities on the basis of utility size or geographical location, as well as numerous other parameters.
