MARKHAM, ONTARIO, CANADA — JUNE 12, 2008 — Orion Technology Inc., a Rolta Company, today announced an extension to the latest release of its flagship product OnPoint™ which integrates with Azteca Systems’ GIS-based asset maintenance management solution Cityworks™. This integration allows Cityworks clients the ability to share their collected work management data with larger audiences within their organizations through OnPoint™.
The integration of OnPoint™ and Cityworks™ provides users who have invested in Cityworks’ “open structure” database to utilize OnPoint to connect to the database and create customized queries against it. This enables Cityworks core users the ability to share specific information with non-Cityworks users in a secure, user-friendly manner.
“We are excited about the Cityworks/OnPoint integration and believe this collaboration offers great opportunities for customers,” states Brian Haslam, President of Azteca Systems. “The key to this integration is that both Cityworks and OnPoint are GIS-centric products – both utilizing the extraordinary benefits of GIS – which makes the programs a natural fit.”
OnPoint provides Cityworks users the ability to enhance their GIS work management systems by applying out-of-the-box implementation capabilities, advanced security, and powerful administration tools for customizing and managing their web portals.
“Cityworks is a world class leader in GIS-based asset maintenance and management, and we are excited to provide integration with our industry leading web-GIS solution, OnPoint. We believe that this integration will provide a strong value proposition to both Cityworks and OnPoint clients in the future, as they continue to look for innovative means of leveraging data throughout their organizations” said Shafik Jiwani, Vice President, Business Development for Orion Technology.
