It’s hard to imagine an aspect of government and community quite as important as public works projects. From infrastructure asset management projects like roads, bridges, and pipelines to utility services such as water treatment, electric grids, and public transportation, these projects form the skeleton of our economy, allowing it to function smoothly and efficiently.
That’s why having high-quality asset management software for public works is so important. When public works operators fail to prioritize asset management, it’s a recipe for disaster: service interruptions and outages, unplanned repairs that eat into departmental budgets, employee miscommunication and decreased productivity, etc.
Furthermore, asset management software such as Novo Solutions’ ShareNet Municipal Operations Management system, can help bring disparate public works departments together under one umbrella, making it easier to share data between departments while saving staff members the trouble of learning multiple systems.
For public works operators who have gotten by for years with an old-fashioned, decentralized approach, adopting a new, comprehensive asset management system might seem like a lot of work. The truth, however, is that it can actually save you a lot more work, time, and money in the long run.
