Public works organizations face a myriad of challenges in managing assets, facilities and infrastructure including diminished budgets, strict regulations, aging infrastructure and increased repair costs.
Adding to this challenge is the fact that many organizations possess inaccurate or outdated infrastructure data and a lack of coordination across departments. This can lead to duplicated efforts and a misalignment of resources for planned work.
A Complete Public Works Enterprise Information System
Access to accurate and timely information is critical for public works organizations to effectively complete regular business operations from budgeting to forecasting to planning and reporting.
GIS is a powerful tool that provides enhanced visualization and analysis of asset information for quicker and more accurate decision making. It also provides a platform to integrate robust business systems such as maintenance and work management applications, to create a complete public works enterprise information system.
