A suite of configurable, product-level software modules developed by SBS to integrate common utility infrastructure design workflows.
Historically, infrastructure-intensive organizations have developed custom, point-to-point interfaces for utility data that are often complex and costly to maintain. Utility DataHub™ provides a maintainable, product-based approach to address these workflows in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Utility DataHub™ enables users to quickly and seamlessly retrieve geospatial utility data from their enterprise GIS without having to leave the familiar user interfaces of AutoCAD® and AUD.
Utility DataHub™ NetMaps allows users to access web-based mapping utility data from most common internet mapping services to augment their designs. NetMaps can also access local sources of imagery and perform geocoding tasks.
Approved designs can be exported back to GIS via Utility DataHub™ Playback Manager module. Playback Manager automates the processing of design and as-built engineering information for promotion into geographic information systems in conformance with utility data mapping standards without data loss.
Supported GIS environments include Esri (ArcGIS, ArcFM, and ArcGIS Pro – Utility Network Model), GE Smallworld, Intergraph G/Technology, and Autodesk Map3D.
Utility DataHub™ allows users to:
All this from within the AutoCAD®-based AUD design environment.
Compatible units and related assemblies are made available to designers from the corporate Enterprise Asset Management or Materials Management systems. Bill of Materials information can be sent back to these systems for estimating then on to other applications to support material retrieval and warehousing transactions.

Utility DataHub™ Mobile Staking seamlessly shares geospatially-enabled models between mobile solutions and Automated Utility Design™.
Utility DataHub™ Mobile Mapping enables GIS data to be uploaded to mobile applications for fieldwork then synchronized back to the GIS with updated data.
Utility Datahub™ Mobile’s two-way data sharing makes in-the-field designing, staking, data collecting, and automated structural engineering easier than ever before.
Supported platforms include Esri Field Maps, AutoCAD 360, Critigen Lemur, Trimble, Tri-Global, Partner Software and other commonly used field-based mobile platforms.
Utility DataHub™ Physical and Protection & Control perform a series of advanced design checks between Substation Design Suite™ Physical and Substation Design Suite™ Protection & Control substation designs. This minimizes time spent on manual tasks and reduces the risk of costly construction errors.
Many assets need to be tracked from point of commission to retirement. Utility DataHub™ SDS – EAM can integrate the substation design information into the Enterprise Asset Management system, eliminating the need to manually enter asset data.
