Ausgrid is responsible for maintaining and upgrading the electricity network, which includes more than 200,000 kilometers of power lines, substations, and other infrastructure. The company is committed to providing reliable and sustainable energy solutions to its customers while working to reduce its impact on the environment. As a distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP), Ausgrid plays a vital role in connecting generators and end users to facilitate the supply of electricity to homes, businesses, and industry. In addition, the company invests in renewable energy projects and works with stakeholders to develop innovative technologies, smart grids, and energy management systems to achieve a more accessible and sustainable electricity supply.
As a Sitecore implementation service provider focused on providing digital solutions for enterprises and organizations, in 2015, QEdge Digital Solutions implemented the official website of Ausgrid, a powerful and scalable Content Management System (CMS), using Sitecore 7.2, which was designed to help companies manage their digital content and provide a personalized user experience.
One of the most prominent features of the Ausgrid website implemented by QEdge Digital Solutions is an online outage prediction and reporting system based on Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This innovative feature enables Ausgrid customers to access real-time outage information in their area, providing important updates on the state of the grid and any ongoing maintenance work.
WFFM allows developers to create custom forms, collect user data, and integrate the information into a variety of Sitecore workflows, making it a reliable choice for implementing a GIS-based power outage reporting system.
By integrating GIS technology into outage forecasting and reporting functions, Ausgrid's website can provide accurate and up-to-date outage information to help customers understand the status of their electricity supply. This powerful capability not only improves customer service, but demonstrates Ausgrid's commitment to leveraging technology and innovation to enhance the overall user experience.
