November 11, 2010 -- Sandy, UT — Cityworks, the leader in GIS-centric management solutions, today announced that the company’s approach to developing an Enterprise Asset Management System (EAMS) is highlighted in the October 2010 issue of the AWWA Journal magazine. President and CEO Brian Haslam provides his insight as an industry expert and pioneer on leveraging GIS to achieve a cost-effective asset management solution.
The October 2010 AWWA journal features the article “Leveraging Your GIS Part I: Achieving a Low-Cost Enterprise Asset Management System.” Detailing how the power of GIS helps improve overall cost-effectiveness and reliability, the article explains how combining GIS with a robust CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management System) provides for a better asset management program, enabling significant cost savings in capital intensive industries. Widely respected within the GIS community, Haslam provides his expertise on the subject, highlighting GIS-centric Asset Management as an efficient and cost-effective approach in the overall EAM plan.
“Years ago, in the early days of GIS, many of us could see beyond the map to the potential of GIS-centric solutions,” stated Haslam. “Cityworks is the original, genuine, and leading GIS-centric management solution. Today, with more than 400 Cityworks organizations around the world, it is evident the GIS-centric approach has merit and is valid. As outlined in Mr. Baird’s journal article, Esri GIS at its core is a superior database management system ideal for managing assets. It provides powerful and intuitive data analysis capabilities. As well as sophisticated development tools for building software solutions. But, the real power behind Cityworks is not in the technologies – the hardware and software – but rather our GIS-centric mindset. We look first for ways to provide solutions for your maintenance and operation challenges by leveraging your investment in Esri GIS. We believe it is the best practice to empower users and management with GIS. Our users say it best when they tell me, ‘it makes perfect sense.’”
