Civica says that Glenorchy City Council - Tasmania’s fourth largest city located in the Greater Hobart metro area - and Victoria’s Prestige Paving, who perform footpath inspections for a number of the State’s councils, can now plan, record and analyse maintenance activities through a native cloud and mobile solution with its Asset Edge Reflect solution.
Glenorchy City Council is Civica’s first Tasmanian customer to select and implement Asset Edge Reflect, going live in June this year just one month after signing the contract, which includes the migration of all pre-existing defect records into the platform.
“Glenorchy City Council was looking for a pavement management system and an inspection management software tool that would enable us to easily identify defects and then prioritise work programmes in an efficient and transparent manner,” says Clive Thompson, Works Manager, Glenorchy City Council.
“We selected Civica’s Asset Edge Reflect solution because we knew it would be easy to both use and adapt to our specific requirements.”
Previously the Council used paperwork to capture all data related to defect management. Since implementation, the organisation has experienced the benefits of the digital solution, which includes the mobility of hand held devices to easily capture identified defects on roads, footpaths, stormwater and parks, and the ability to allocate tasks to work crews for rectification of defects.
“The intent of acquiring an inspection and maintenance management software solution was to encourage us to develop a pavement management system from the bottom up,” Thompson said.
“It has helped us to focus on intervention times, requirements, service levels, and inspection regimes.
“An additional benefit is that we no longer require staff to come to the depot, which was important with the threat of COVID-19 and minimising contact.”
Civica says Prestige Paving in Victoria is benefiting from the efficiencies provided by Asset Edge Reflect.
“We chose Asset Edge Reflect because it’s a user-friendly and versatile solution that meets the dynamic requirements of our organisation.,” says Pavel Aronovych, General Manager, Prestige Civil Group.
“The unlimited data archive means our staff can easily upload inspection data from the field using mobile devices, ensuring that our record keeping for customers is comprehensive.”
