DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#SSPInnovations—SSP Innovations announced a new organizational structure that unifies its utility and telecom operations under a single leadership team.

“Our goal has always been to lead the utility and telecom GIS markets with innovative products and services that advance and evolve our customers’ businesses,” commented Patrick Vardeman, CEO. “Unifying our operations will allow us to run as one in pursuit of that goal. A single set of shared best practices will guide our efforts to deliver increasingly valuable products and services to our customers.”

SSP Innovations, a long-time leader in utility GIS, expanded its footprint in the industry in 2021 with the acquisition of 3-GIS, a long-time leader in telecom GIS. Today’s announcement is the next logical step in bringing the two organizations together under the SSP banner. In addition to a thriving GIS implementation services business, the company maintains two industry-focused product lines – SSP ActiveGIS™ and the 3-GIS | Network Solutions. SSP ActiveGIS is a comprehensive suite of utility-focused desktop and mobile applications that bring added value to the Esri ArcGIS Utility Network platform. 3-GIS | Network Solutions is a comprehensive, web-based GIS network management solution for telecommunications, allowing enterprises to plan, design, and manage networks.
