It has a population of about 227,000 and is a frequent recipient of awards for excellence, including recognition by various publications as one of the safest and best-run cities in the U.S.

“InfoMaster provides us with the platform to create a comprehensive and customizable asset management methodology and the tools to leverage infrastructure data to effectively prioritize the inspection and renewal of our collection system infrastructure,” said Levi Dillon, P.E., Senior Water Resources Engineer for the city of Scottsdale. “Its ability to integrate with GIS and its powerful analytical asset management tools will help us quickly and effectively prioritize needed action throughout our collection system on an ongoing basis. This will allow us to preserve its structural integrity, optimize its performance, and keep it operating efficiently into the future.”

Built atop ArcGIS, InfoMaster gives utilities insight into all enterprise assets, their conditions and work processes, facilitating significantly better planning and control. It lets users leverage business analytics and smart network modeling capabilities in new ways. It also provides the framework for systematically analyzing and calculating asset criticality and risk, predicting replacement costs, and carrying out scenario-based planning for infrastructure maintenance and replacement rehabilitation.
