Jefferson County Hires Woolpert to Upgrade Asset Management Systems - 22/01/2019

Woolpert has been contracted by Jefferson County, Alabama, to implement the Cityworks Enterprise Asset Management System (AMS) for its Department of Roads and Transportation, and to upgrade the AMS for the county's Department of Environmental Services.

The two-part, multiyear project will improve, align and standardise the work order services and asset management groups of the nine divisions within these departments.

John Cestnick, Woolpert project manager, said “Jefferson County has been a Cityworks user for many years and sought a technological refresh and augmentation. Woolpert, a Cityworks Platinum Implementation Partner, has worked with the GIS-centric asset maintenance management solution provider for more than 20 years. The architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm has performed close to 400 Cityworks implementations.”

Srikanth Karra, chief information officer for Jefferson County, said, “This enterprise asset management system helps Jefferson County realise the benefits of GIS-based, real-time updates to effectively and efficiently manage enterprise-wide assets and helps realise efficiencies with fully integrated workflow processes across multiple departments.”

Jefferson County aims to leverage Woolpert's asset management industry expertise to update the previously configured system. This implementation will normalise workflows across divisions and provide a solution that supports the county's continuous operational improvement initiatives.
