Woolpert was contracted by the city of South Bend, Ind., to implement the Cityworks Asset Management System (AMS) for the Department of Public Works’ Office of Sewers. This is the first Cityworks implementation for the city.
Woolpert is taking a holistic approach to implementing Cityworks, while consulting on the city’s geographic information system (GIS)—the backbone of the Cityworks solution. South Bend also is a member of Esri’s Early Adopter Community, which helps test and discuss new software.
Project Manager Jeff Pesler said Woolpert leverages its experience gained over the course of 400 implementations, as well as through its multiple international The Institute of Asset Management (IAM) certifications and diplomas, to comprehensively assist municipalities, including South Bend.
“The successful Cityworks implementation for South Bend’s Office of Sewers is a great proof of concept for the asset management solution citywide,” Pesler said. “The city is already thinking in terms of an enterprise-wide deployment for several divisions of the Public Works Department, and we will support them however needed.”
The sewer implementation went live in early August, and South Bend’s asset management vision is poised to advance in the coming months.
