Partnership helps municipalities diagnose, prioritize infrastructure maintenance
VUEWorks, developers of GIS-integrated work order and asset management solutions, and InfraMetrix, providers of infrastructure diagnostic services, have formed a technology partnership aimed at helping local governments prioritize infrastructure maintenance and capital investments for improved performance. VUEWorks has also named InfraMetrix a National Channel Partner, authorized to sell and build solutions around VUEWorks to customers throughout the U.S.
InfraMetrix, headquartered in Tampa, Fla., is a provider of buried asset inventory and condition assessment data for water, wastewater sewer and storm water systems. The company uses advanced methods and tools, such as zoom camera technology, GIS and GPS, to help organizations assess operational, structural and hydraulic conditions. By adding VUEWorks to its portfolio of solutions, InfraMetrix’s clients can now use that data to prioritize maintenance, assign risk and assess consequences of asset failure and ultimately maximize capital improvement planning.
“Our mission is to deliver data in a usable easily accessible form to help our clients economically prioritize the maintenance and capital investments needed to provide consistent and reliable services,” commented Bill DiTullio, president of InfraMetrix. “However, the data by itself is only half of the equation—our clients need an asset management solution like VUEWorks that makes the data readily usable by staff and contractors who need it. VUEWorks is a very intuitive, Web-based, affordable software package that provides point-and-click access to physical characteristic information, operational/service, and structural condition of assets—all very important to optimize management of the system and maintain service delivery to the customers. As far as I’m concerned, VUEWorks is the best data mapping and data management system under one ‘roof’ available today.”
