Mobile system to help small cities and counties run their day-to-day with confidence and clarity
Cartegraph, a leader in high-performance government software and services, has announced the release of Cartegraph AMS, a simple, yet powerful infrastructure asset management system that empowers small communities to collect assets, assign work, and monitor costs through an Android or iOS device. Best described as “asset management in your pocket,” the new product is part of Cartegraph’s ongoing mission to help cities of all sizes manage assets effectively, deploy resources efficiently and become more productive for their citizens.
“For decades, small communities have relied on spreadsheets, stacks of paper and the memory of veteran employees to manage their assets. But, with an aging infrastructure, a retiring workforce, pressures to slash spending and citizens depending on them—it simply isn’t cutting it anymore,” said Jake Schneider, Cartegraph president and CEO. “We believe Cartegraph AMS has the power to revolutionize the public sector in a big way and know this straightforward system will help local governments across the country perform at a higher level.”
For enhanced analysis and decision making, Cartegraph AMS works seamlessly with Esri's ArcGIS platform. Users are empowered to collect assets, assign work and monitor costs from their mobile device, by simply signing into the system through their web browser. These resources—including a summary of their asset inventory, conditions and costs—support a data-driven approach to preparing budget proposals, justifying needs to council and communicating with citizens.
Cartegraph AMS is the industry’s most cost-effective solution, starting at $59 per user, per month. The unique online purchase system helps organizations get up and running fast, and takes only minutes to complete—reducing buying time and potentially the need for lengthy proposals or extensive budget discussions. The system is ideal for singular departments or organizations looking to manage a few simple assets, and who are currently faced with untrustworthy asset data, outdated technology or limited budgets.
“Prior to Cartegraph AMS, we found small, rural communities had been underserved by the marketplace; the available systems were either too complex or too expensive for them to use,” said Aaron Post, Cartegraph general manager of small market business. “We’re proud to offer these communities the support they need to make data-driven decisions and manage their day-to-day operations.”
