CENTENNIAL, Colo., 11 Sept. 2007 – CompassCom Software Corp. is pleased to announce that it has worked jointly with Azteca Systems Inc. to develop an interface between the CompassLDE automatic vehicle location (AVL) solution and Azteca’s Cityworks asset maintenance management system. This allows Azteca clients to view the status and locations of vehicles in real time on their Cityworks map displays.
“CompassCom Software and Azteca have combined two critical public works applications – vehicle tracking and asset maintenance management – into an integrated GIS-centric solution for faster and easier decision making,” said CompassCom Software CEO W. Brant Howard. “These two applications can now be accessed within the enterprise GIS.”
CompassLDE is a universal AVL and mobile resource management server that receives wireless GPS-based location and status information from vehicles in multiple fleets over different communications networks simultaneously. Compatible with the CompassTrac client application and ESRI-based GIS software, CompassLDE serves location-based data in real time via the Internet or intranet for displaying on computer-aided dispatch, mobile data terminals or third party software, such as the Azteca Cityworks system.
Cityworks is the leading GIS-centric asset and maintenance management solution. It is a powerful, flexible, and affordable package that is used by a wide array of industries to help agencies respond to customer needs and manage assets using the workflow they are accustomed to. Scalable, easy-to-use, and based on open technology, Cityworks has been successfully deployed at hundreds of sites around the world, increasing productivity, improving customer service, and lowering operational costs.
“The integration of CompassLDE and Cityworks offers our customers a unique and powerful solution to managing the resources deployed to care for their assets and critical infrastructure,” said Brian Haslam, President of Azteca Systems. “We believe both existing and potential customers will find this extended solution useful and attractive. And, being GIS-based, this further illustrates the unparalleled benefits of GIS-centric solutions working together.”
The interface between CompassLDE and Cityworks displays georeferenced icons on the digital map screen to show the real-time locations of vehicles that have been equipped with AVL GPS/modem devices. The Cityworks user can click on any individual vehicle icon as it moves across the map to access details of its status, heading and speed. The CompassLDE server technology enables the user to simultaneously track the locations of hundreds of vehicles from multiple fleets.
“The most important benefit that CompassLDE offers to Cityworks clients is the ability to see the precise locations of their vehicles and crews relative to their organization’s assets in real time,” said Howard.
CompassCom Software expects the new AVL interface will appeal to Cityworks clients in public works, utility, water/wastewater and other municipal departments. In addition, the interface will enable existing CompassCom customers to utilize Cityworks asset management in their existing enterprise.
