The multi-specialty engineering firm Ayres Associates and Cartegraph, a leader in high-performance government software and services, recently announced a partnership to help clients get a better handle on the condition of their infrastructure assets and plan for the future.
Using Ayres Associates’ engineering expertise and geospatial services to supplement Cartegraph’s web-based asset and work management tools, the two companies will assess the current condition of communities’ roads, sewer systems, water supply systems and more, while also efficiently tracking local government resources, performing risk assessments and assisting with budget forecasting.
“Our new partnership with Cartegraph expands our process improvement portfolio and complements the asset management and geospatial services we offer at Ayres Associates,” said Thomas Tym, technology solutions leader at Ayres Associates. “Together, we can offer our municipal and government clients a more effective means of managing internal resources, measuring their assets’ current condition, estimating repair or replacement timelines and allocating funds in order to sustain and maximize asset life cycles.”
Devoted to helping local governments become more effective, efficient and productive for their residents, Cartegraph builds high-performance organizations through a powerful combination of expert consulting and innovative software. As part of this approach, Cartegraph supports the public sector with a wide range of services, from pavement management system implementation and right-of-way asset collection to GIS data reviews and operational dashboard set-up.
In turn, Ayres Associates has a long history of providing engineering and geospatial expertise to public- and private-sector clients nationwide. Its project managers are committed to building long-term relationships with clients while reliably solving their problems, stretching their dollars, and masterfully navigating regulations. The Ayres team welcomes the opportunity to extend their reach through this new collaboration with Cartegraph.
“Our clients aren’t in government operations for the money or the recognition. They’re here because they care about their constituents and want to leave their community better than they found it,” said Pete Engstrom, Cartegraph director of strategic initiatives. “We’re proud to partner with Ayres Associates to help these organizations strategically use their time, materials and taxpayer dollars to deliver the best possible outcomes for their citizens.”
