Trimble (United States) - Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and Cityworks, a Trimble Company, announced the release of a real-time asset management solution for water and wastewater utilities. The solution, available as a subscription, allows utilities to leverage sensor data, location intelligence and analytics 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-a Service (SaaS).
The Trimble and Cityworks proven platforms—used by thousands of water, wastewater and municipal utilities—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.
"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."
A key component of the solution is the latest release of Trimble Unity Remote Monitoring version 4.8 SaaS. Trimble Unity provides new remote monitoring capabilities and tools, enabling utilities to prioritize operational resources for the areas of greatest need across their networks. The service focuses on ease of use, clear reporting and advanced analytics while integrating seamlessly with Cityworks AMS and Operational Insights as well as Esri® ArcGIS® software.
The real-time remote monitoring data and configurable 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.
"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."
Cityworks, a Trimble Company, streamlines the way government agencies and utilities manage infrastructure and property by combining the power and flexibility of Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technology with the business logic of asset management, permitting, licensing and more. Cityworks is a GIS-centric™ platform and leverages Esri ArcGIS technology to help customers manage workflow, schedule resources and prioritize activities, saving time, optimizing communication and improving operational efficiency.
