“This methodology helped us realize an almost instant return on our investment,” stated Juston Manville, GIS Manager at the City of Beaverton, Oregon. “The Local Government Data Model (Esri) and Local Government Templates made this possible. So many organizations spend years implementing and paying maintenance on their software before they actually use the product they purchased. The Local Government Templates allowed us to use Cityworks in a production environment almost instantly.”
With the Local Government Templates, which are designed specifically to align with Esri’s Local Government Information Model, most cities are able to post the initial configuration for review and refinement in just a few weeks. The review process is mainly tweaking the models versus having to come up with templates from scratch. Cityworks LGT is designed specifically to help Cityworks customers simplify deployment and configuration, leveraging common industry knowledge and practices. While the Local Government Templates can work in conjunction with Esri Local Government (data) Model (LGM). they will work with any independent data model. Available to any size organization, LGT includes ready-made service request templates, work order templates, custom inspection templates and standard inspections. The templates provide standard work activities that organizations can use to get to work almost immediately. In addition to service requests and work orders, LGT includes industry standard inspections, helping organizations quickly assess the condition of their infrastructure. Best of all, these templates are the result of years of public works and utilities experience from public and private sector professionals, brought together by industry application specialists – they hit the mark.
The templates are built for Public Works and water related utilities, including common assets for water, sewer, storm water, streets, forestry, parks, electric, fleet and more. Users have access to 770 work order templates, 195 service request templates, Cityworks standard inspections, and 25 custom inspection templates. New templates are continually added to the set. Organizations select the templates best suiting their needs. These templates are available for free to all Cityworks clients.
