Partnership will help municipalities maximize efficiency of asset ownership and operation
VUEWorks, Inc. and Springbrook Software have formed a technology partnership to help local government agencies increase efficiency and accountability by linking their financial, asset management and GIS systems.
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.
The VUEWorks-Springbrook integration is already delivering labor-saving benefits to a mutual beta customer—Northstar CSD, a California Special District located near Truckee, Calif. Northstar reports that VUEWorks collects a substantial amount of its departmental cost and payroll information, which is then keyed into Springbrook.
“We have a proof of concept that VUEWorks can collect all the information we need, and organize it in the fashion that it can be consumed by Springbrook,” commented Ryen Tarbet, Northstar’s IT supervisor. “Our next step is to automate this step with a direct VUEWorks-Springbrook integration. We are on the cusp of some very substantive development work.”
“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 and 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.”
“In a turbulent economy, we understand the importance of maximizing every dollar,” said Scott Stickel, Springbrook’s vice president of sales and marketing. “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.”
