Central Park Conservancy adopts Cartegraph for park management operations
DUBUQUE, IOWA – Cartegraph, the leading provider of work, asset, resource, and request management technology for local governments, is pleased to announce the addition of New York City’s beautiful and historic Central Park to its roster of public sector clients.
Central Park Conservancy, the private, not-for-profit organization that manages Central Park, has chosen Cartegraph technology to manage day-to-day operations performed against the Park’s diverse inventory of assets, including monuments, water features, trees, pavement segments, and water distribution and storm water networks. The Conservancy also has plans to use Cartegraph for managing event operations and vendor licenses.
“Another thing that’s noteworthy is how the Conservancy plans to use Cartegraph to track adoptions and endowments,” said Glen Wiederholt, Cartegraph Enterprise Sales Executive. “Many trees, benches, fountains, and other popular park features are made possible by donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Cartegraph will play a major role in accurately tracking those important benefactors and their contributions.”
Central Park comprises 843 acres and hosts approximately 40+ million visitors annually, making it the most frequently visited urban park in the United States.
Central Park Conservancy was formed in 1980 by a group of concerned citizens determined to improve Central Park. Today, the Conservancy provides 75% of Central Park’s $57 million annual operating budget, and is responsible for all aspects of Park maintenance, as well as capital improvements and restorations.
Phase One of Central Park Conservancy’s Cartegraph software implementation is already underway. The organization hopes to be up-and-running with its new Operations Management System in early-2015.
