Municipal Assets

Infrastructures in the United States provide critical services to the general population, from drinking water and wastewater treatment to transportation, electricity, and municipal buildings such as schools, public works, safety complexes, and town offices.

An important part of governing a municipality is to track the condition and budget for the maintenance and improvement of the infrastructure. Technology can be used to improve operational efficiency, planning and budgeting in many areas. Citizens and municipal employees can participate in the process of maintaining and improving the infrastructure using their internet enabled devices, such as tablets and smart phones, combined with web accessible asset management and work order software, to improve municipal operations and budgeting.
