Integrated asset management systems to improve VA water provider's operations

Sponsored by


Jan. 17, 2014 -- In an effort to better manage its broad network of fleet, facilities and infrastructure assets, Virginia's City of Newport News Waterworks has selected to install new integrated asset management systems.

Provided by AssetWork -- a provider of fleet management software, automated fuel management systems, motor pool systems, and operational asset management systems -- the FleetFocus, FuelFocus and EAM technologies will replace an in-house developed system at the Newport News site.

The Virginia water provider's initial intention for adopting the technology was to incorporate a fleet management software integrated with a fuel management system; however, it expanded to include the new EAM infrastructure management system after learning that one vendor could provide all the functionality it was seeking.

"Among the reasons we selected AssetWorks integrated asset management solution is their demonstrated ability to accommodate the broad range of assets that we must manage, the enhanced parts and purchasing functionalit,y and their willingness to work with and listen to us about the asset management needs of a water utility," states David Cooper, project lead, Newport News Waterworks.
