"What impressed me about the Aleier FM1 EAM Suite is that a single, comprehensive EAM / CMMS platform can accommodate the unique maintenance strategies and associated financial tracking for many of our departments," said Curt Harper, Applications & Business Manager-Information & Technology Services for the City of Goodyear. Six departments are initially scheduled for an Aleier asset survey and FM1 EAM Suite implementation, including Water Resources, Facilities, Parks and Recreation, Sanitation, Community Services, and Streets. The system includes the FM1 Bridge interface that ties to the City's existing major enterprise systems finance and accounting, ArcView Geographic Information System (GIS), and fleet management.
Harper added, "Plus, by implementing Aleier FM1 EAM Suite, we are utilizing a sophisticated EAM / CMMS system utilized by municipalities larger than the City of Goodyear. The system is flexible enough to accommodate our needs today but can handle our anticipated growth in the future." Ninety percent of the 215 square miles in the City of Goodyear is currently available for development, and the City projects population growth from its current 57,000 residents to nearly 400,000 residents by 2030. Along with that growth, the City anticipates expansion in city streets, municipal facilities, public works, and municipal workforce to service the residential and commercial communities. The enterprise license structure of Aleier FM1 EAM Suite is particularly cost effective for the City because they can add new users to the system for no extra cost, making their EAM / CMMS software licensing budget simple and predictable.
"The City of Goodyear is setting the standard among the fastest growing, most prestigious municipalities in which to live and do business. Aleier FM1 EAM Suite will enable them to deliver impressive municipal services to a growing number of constituents, while ensuring maximum return on tax dollars expended to acquire and maintain their rapidly growing city infrastructure," said Bill Caver, President of Aleier.
