ATLANTA, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Point Partners, LLC, a full-service consulting services firm serving the utility, mining, revenue management and transportation industries, announced that the Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB), a customer-owned water and electric utility serving 86,000 customers in Eugene, Oregon, selected Five Point to implement Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management and Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management to greatly enhance EWEB's Asset Management and Service Delivery capabilities and performance.

Five Point's collaborative approach, in-depth industry and product knowledge, and proven track record made them the best choice for the project."
