City of Ballarat improves efficiency and cost savings with mobile asset management solution
Managing assets and strategic growth
Like many local government authorities in Australia, the City of Ballarat needed to extend its asset management solution to manage all council assets while also supporting capital works planning. The Council required a solution that would enable staff to easily record issues directly in the field and to route jobs to the best staff for prompt action.
In recent years, the Council has focused its attention on proactive field based inspections of council assets. The manual and laborious nature of the original process resulted in procedural difficulties, including data upload and download inefficiencies, which required staff to rigorously check into the depot each day. The Council recognised that these problems could be resolved by adopting a more dynamic approach to live, in-field asset maintenance.
