Study proves substantial time and cost savings
October 03, 2007 -- Sandy, UT — Azteca Systems, Inc., the leading provider of GIS-centric management solutions, announced today that the City of Ann Arbor, MI, experienced significant time and cost savings utilizing Cityworks with the City’s sidewalk inspection program. Results of their study demonstrated cost savings of $52,000 a year.
The City of Ann Arbor has been a Cityworks user since 2000. Over time, the City has grown into a full, enterprise-wide implementation. Recently, they implemented the software in their sidewalk inspection group within Public Services, experiencing fast, tangible results. Every five years, Ann Arbor’s sidewalk inspection staff inspects more than 27,000 sidewalk segments. Before Cityworks, inspections were done on paper costing the City $100,000 per year. Utilizing Cityworks on Tablet PCs, field inspectors assess the condition for each property with all phases of the inspection tracked through Cityworks. A study conducted to measure economic benefits from using Cityworks showed that using Cityworks, inspection time was minimized, resulting in a cost savings of $500 per week per team, with an annual cost savings of $52,000.
“Ann Arbor’s demonstrated time and cost savings is yet another confirmation of Cityworks’ ability to drastically improve processes of organizations,” states Brian Haslam, President of Azteca Systems. “A longtime Cityworks customer, we appreciate their dedication to the software, realizing the principle reason they continue to expand throughout the City is because of the results they experience, such as this case.”
