Local governments must adapt to the meet the needs of their citizens, yet it's easier said than done as limited budgets and aging technology keep these asset-intensive agencies falling behind. The solution? Implementing an Operations Management System (OMS) program.
"So you're saying we can reduce costs by managing our assets better?"
Yes! Traditional management methods have become inadequate to satisfy the public sector needs of today and create inefficient data silos and reactive responses rather than proactive precautions. With an OMS solution, local government agencies take a systematic approach to asset management with a focus on preserving and extending the service life of their assets while also streamlining the management processes involved.
"Does OMS just improve our assets, or will it benefit our organization as a whole?"
Your entire organization of course! Asset management is the first step on the path to better utilization and performance of resources, reduced capital, and operating costs, and improved workflows, practices, and services. One of the top benefits to come from an OMS solution? Cost savings. The U.S Environmental Protection Agency estimated that improving an organization's asset management can result in savings of at least (at least!) 20 percent of the costs of asset ownership. Depending on the number of assets your organization manages, that could be quite a bit of saving.
This white paper was written to help local government agencies understand how an OMS solution can help define long-term goals, align leadership within the organization, facilitate data-driven decisions, and integrate departments, initiatives, and budgets.
