Built for the business of utilities
UMAX 365 is designed to support the unique business needs of utilities, leveraging the power of Microsoft’s integrated, flexible Dynamics 365 enterprise platform in ways that drive greater operational value.
Down with data silos
As data silos across information systems come down, so do operational roadblocks across the utility organization.
UMAX’s modern architecture is built for integration with solutions across the utility technology landscape–including native integration with the entire Microsoft ecosystem of applications and tools.
The result is fewer technical hurdles to getting business done and greater flexibility to fit each utility’s evolving business needs.
Flexibility to meet business needs today … and tomorrow

Connectivity and integration is at the heart of Microsoft’s cloud-powered platform.
Development and delivery—both from Itineris and Microsoft—is focused on configuration flexibility rather than customization.
