Take Your Infrastructure to The Next Level  With GIS

Daily, public works employees utilize their asset management software to streamline workflow processes, but without integrating geographic information systems (GIS), operations may not achieve their full potential.  Enterprises that use GIS see improvement in facility maintenance, fleet management, infrastructure maintenance, and more. Lucky for you, AssetWorks EAM software integrates directly with GIS so your department can:

  • Propagate data changes between multiple data sources
  • Ensure data integrity, consistency, and credibility
  • Receive real-time tracking of features and events
  • Take advantage of geographic data

Sounds great, but how can AssetWorks GIS features help improve your community’s infrastructure?

Roads & Streets
Keeping your roadways protects your customers and ensures they can arrive at their final destination safely. GIS allows road & street departments better manage maintenance, construction, and landscaping- incredibly important in winter months.

By combining asset software, such as AssetWorks Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), with GIS, departments can view the current pavement conditions, history, and work orders. This integration removes barriers by allowing enterprises to have a constant detailed map view of their assets, making for a quicker maintenance response time.

Solid Waste
Uniting AssetWorks EAM and GIS allows all departments to access data from one centralized database- reducing data collection redundancies and improving workflow. Once a work order request gets assigned, AssetWorks GIS will automatically determine the optimal route for minimal fuel usage and drive time.

GIS not only completes automatic assignments but provides the data to make confident business decisions.

Example:
Your organization is deciding on a new landfill site location. Using AssetWorks GIS, your organization will consider various factors with the software’s data models, ensuring you decide on the most optimal location. 

Traffic
With EAM software, your roadways are receiving proper maintenance, but you should continuously check traffic flow to ensure they are providing effective movement. Earlier, we discussed how much GIS connects all departments. This data feature is valuable with traffic as it allows traffic engineers to access up-to-date data when out in the field. A centralized database improves communication and ensures the job is done correctly by allowing all departments to design, construct, maintain, and plan their community roadways. The ability to edit a geodatabase while disconnected and connected will improve the following:

  • Traffic flow analysis
  • Dispatching
  • Congestion management 

Parks & Recreation
Parks are vital for community health and well-being, so you need a powerful tool to manage such a significant area of land. Incorporating asset management software into your enterprise is the first step to ensuring your parks are in good health, but integrating GIS is an extra steppingstone for efficient park maintenance. Integrating asset management with GIS allows you to have complete visibility of assets on a dynamic map- not only for easy asset monitoring but also to enhance public service.
