The two companies are integrating VUEWorks’ GIS-enabled asset and work order management solution with Springbrook’s accounting and CIS software, and will develop joint solutions that allow organizations to track the true cost of owning and operating individual assets. Examples of future capabilities include:
- the ability to link labor and payroll costs in both systems -- eliminating redundant data entry and errors and allowing municipalities to track and cross-charge other departments for labor and equipment used in the field;
- the ability to perform fixed asset valuation and depreciation in VUEWorks and roll it up in Springbrook;
- the ability to comply with government regulations, such as GASB 34 reporting and the new California Waste Discharge Requirements, a regulatory mechanism for providing a consistent, state-wide approach for reducing Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs).
“VUEWorks and Springbrook both focus on the local government market, and we have many clients in common,” commented Alex von Svoboda, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for VUEWorks. “Integrating the products allows us to serve our clients better, as they can maximize the return on their software investment and optimize functionality across the organization.”
Scott Stickel, Springbrook’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing is equally enthusiastic about the partnership between Springbrook and VUEWorks. Stickel states, “In a turbulent economy, we understand the importance of maximizing every dollar. The powerful combination of Springbrook’s software and VUEWorks’ solution is just one example of our shared commitment to provide smart, progressive technology to the public sector.”
