Ventyx, an ABB company, has signed a software license agreement worth more than $3 million with Jamaica Public Service (JPS), the sole provider of electricity to Jamaica.

JPS has used a Ventyx customer information system (CIS) solution for more than 15 years. Under the new agreement, Ventyx says the utility will upgrade its CIS, as well as implement Ventyx's mobile workforce management and outage management system solutions, to gain greater visibility across its transmission network - improving outage-restoration times in the aftermath of severe weather conditions.

"When confronted by storms such as Hurricane Sandy, which affected power supply to tens of thousands of residents, restoring electricity services as quickly and efficiently as possible is essential to the welfare of Jamaican citizens," says Kelly Tomblin, president and CEO of JPS.
