For public works agencies, running operations in real time must be second nature. Location-based operations dashboards and asset management software provide the real-time environment and management capabilities that these organizations need to integrate data from finance, customer service, GIS, sensors, and consumer applications for improved decision-making. Machine learning and artificial intelligence reveal opportunities for preventative asset inventory, improved asset maintenance, enhanced traffic management, and streamlined alerts for crews when disruptions occur.

Streamline asset management

GIS allows you to organize your assets, understand their location and condition, and integrate your systems with leading asset management software. Mobile solutions help maintenance workers collect and inspect assets in the field. Give mobile workers the information they need to be more productive and keep assets in top condition.

Operate in real time

Advances in technology make it possible for agencies to make decisions in seconds rather than minutes or hours. Sensor data from buildings, personnel, vehicles, and even the environment can provide real-time feedback about what is happening in the field. Achieve efficient operations by using the most up-to-date data on conditions and community needs.

Achieve field mobility

With GIS, public works crews and managers are operating on one authoritative source of information. Staff can now immediately analyze data collected in the field for a more action-oriented approach, supporting and connecting your staff working in the field and back in the office, operationalizing the information, and improving service quality.

Automate workflows and predict conditions

Expand the application of GIS with artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities. You can better understand patterns and reduce impacts, adjust traffic conditions in real time, predict maintenance, monitor trash conditions, conduct asset management, and train computers and algorithms to identify blight.

Modernize performance management

Raise the bar on performance with real-time measurement tools that help you keep everything on schedule and running smoothly. Monitor and adjust daily operations, from solid-waste pickup to winter maintenance and sign inventory. This new chapter in accountability and reliability is found not in static reports but on real-time dashboards.
