Trimble and Cityworks announced today the release of a real-time asset management solution for water and wastewater utilities. The solution allows utilities to leverage sensor data, location intelligence, and analytics tools in their asset management strategies by combining Cityworks® asset management software with Trimble’s Telog® IoT recorders and the latest release of Trimble Unity™ remote monitoring software.
“As part of Trimble, we are excited to integrate platforms and extend a unique solution to water and wastewater utilities for improving their decision-making process,” said Brian Haslam, CEO and president of Cityworks. ”A GIS-centric and data-driven approach to asset management allows organizations to better understand their service levels, work history, emergency response, and capital planning needs.”
The Trimble and Cityworks platforms—used by thousands of water, wastewater, and municipal utilities around the globe—combine to create a “system of action” based on real-time asset data collected from Trimble’s Telog family of wireless, battery-powered IoT recorders.
The real-time remote monitoring data and configurable sensor alarms flow from Trimble Unity into Cityworks, triggering the creation of field inspections and work orders so field crews can quickly and easily complete their assigned work. Cityworks provides a GIS-centric environment for collecting asset information, calculating business risk exposure, and analyzing trends based on combined historic maintenance, asset data, and sensor data.
“Trimble acquired Cityworks in October 2019 and this integration is a major milestone in our vision of creating a unique and comprehensive digital platform for transforming the way water and wastewater utilities prioritize infrastructure maintenance and construction investments,” said Alain Samaha, vice president of Trimble’s Utilities and Public Administration. “Customers can benefit from an integrated solution that will enable them to realize improved infrastructure resilience, increased productivity, and better return-on-investment associated with infrastructure construction and operation.”
