All your data in one place
It’s easiest to manage your pumps, valves, pipes and other water assets if you have all the data about them in one place.
Ideally the data should be asset-centric, enabling you to track the condition and performance of individual assets over their entire lifetime. No need to piece together the life history of an asset from its maintenance/survey records or repair tickets. Then you can visualize, query, and report on assets, in the ways that suit different roles in a water utility, local authority, or consultancy.
InfoAsset software from Innovyze provides this for you. InfoAsset Manager is for daily use, while InfoAsset Planner is designed for planning capital projects and capital improvement plans. InfoAsset Mobile is optimized for integrated working with field crews, and InfoAsset Online enables you to share information with people inside and outside your organization via a web browser.
A single version of the truth
InfoAsset Manager provides a central source of truth, brokering and compiling data and information about the asset, including:
- The physical characteristics and location of your assets
- The connectivity between your assets, inspections and surveys
- Incidents and customer complaints
- Work orders and tasks
You can easily see on a map where there are issues and problem hotspots. You simply zoom in to see the life history of each asset – you can even play the relevant CCTV video.
InfoAsset Online enables you to share the information with anyone you choose, and all they need is a browser. It’s ideal for improving communications with people inside and outside your organization – including customers, partners, local authorities, and regulators.
InfoAsset Planner’s analytics capabilities use all this data for risk-based capital planning and prioritization, capital budgeting, and life cycle cost analysis (LCCA). Tight integration with InfoAsset Manager and InfoAsset Mobile means you can schedule and complete work orders and tasks raised in InfoAsset Planner.
InfoAsset Manager also validates information when you’ve loaded it, and records its provenance, giving you confidence in your data.
Collect it in the field
InfoAsset Mobile increases the efficiency of data collection significantly. Crews receive their schedules, do their work, and report back, all using the mobile application. There’s no bottleneck of laborious paper reporting and data entry back at the office, with the risks of records getting lost and data being mis-keyed. The new data is available to all InfoAsset Manager users immediately.
InfoAsset Mobile also provides scheduling tools for crews, and enables office-based colleagues to monitor the progress of surveys and maintenance without interrupting the crews.
Analysis for action
The powerful analytics in InfoAsset help you identify:
- Which assets are critical, by developing a risk profile
- Which assets need interventions, in priority order
- How and where to best spend your budget
- Whether your surveying, cleaning, and flushing programs can be more efficient
- Whether your contractors are achieving their targets
