The beauty of this custom web application is in its flexibility, as it adapts to better track and manage a wide range of local government assets. St. Johns County serves as an excellent example of how this custom web application helps automate asset inventory, increasing efficiency and cutting operation and maintenance costs.
With a population of more than 200,000, St. Johns County has used Cityworks since 2005. Their Cityworks system helps manage public works assets and maintenance for stormwater, traffic signals, pavement, traffic signs, right-of-way, and fleet operations. The County currently has over 93,000 work orders and 90 current Cityworks Server users.
In addition to integrating Cityworks into its Public Works program, the County’s Utilities Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) includes its sewer, water, and reclaimed water networks, and since 2009, encompasses 21 storerooms and over 50,000 work orders. CMMS integrates with CIS, AMR/AMI, and SCADA, and has 75 Cityworks users in the field and the office.
Jones Edmunds also helped St. Johns County develop a performance-based budget tool, customized dashboards, and MicroPAVER and NAPA integration. The consulting firm’s GIS team also created new reports and a web interface for tracking information related to users, hardware, and software. The upgraded system saves the St. Johns County Public Works Department 10 hours of labor per week. It has eliminated their backlog for new assets, lowered maintenance costs using a web client, and increased productivity and efficiency. The system also permits the County to stay abreast of current technology. The County previously received the 2010 Esri SAG Award, and this year received the 2014 Cityworks Exemplary User Award for their innovative and intelligent application of Cityworks and for empowering their communities through the use of GIS. Jones Edmunds is proud to be a partner with St. Johns County and continues to provide the County with training and ongoing support for its system.
