    Hi All,

    I'm seeking feedback on what systems Councils and Water Authorities are using to manage their assets.
    Of particular interest is 'works management' and the use of 'mobility' devices.

    Thank you in advance,

    ​Hi Andrew,

    We use the Technology One suite of applications at the City of Charles Sturt. This includes Works, Assets, Mobility, SAM, Financials, Property & Rating and HR&P, providing us with a seamless integration between the systems.

    We are currently setting up for the TECH1 solution for works management/asset management.  Supposedly with seamless links to F1 (financials) ECM (documents).  It looks good on paper, but they all do!  Just a bit sceptical about functionality that makes life easier for all, but there is mobility solutions included.  I think NOOSA or MAROOCHY may use it as a cloud hosted solution, we are going with our own servers.


    Very big change...................................


    Thanks & Regards........Michael

    Hi Andrew,

    QPRC are currently rolling out the OneCouncil solution from TechnologyOne.  Currently slowly working through implementing Inspection Schedules and implementing work orders using the T1 Mobility solution.

    This has proven to be a large tasks and should not be under estimated and needs dedicated resourcing to implement within reasonable timeframes.

    ​Hi Andrew - QPWS (QLD Parks and Wildlife Service) are currently using Loc8 for desktop and mobility systems for asset management and the creation and despatch of jobs. I worked previously for MBRC and they were using Technology 1, Veolia Network Services was using Infonet (desktop and mobility), Queensland Urban Utilities were using Ellipse (about 4 years ago - could have changed since).

    As a digression, we recently went looking for an Asset management system. I stole ideas from Kylie Kerr at MPSC.
    1. Decide the scenarios that are most likely to occur and write a paragraph about it.
    2. Short list the plethora of provider possibilities based on your budget and other potential key elements/functionality/integration.
    3. Use these scenarios as the basis for the selected short list of providers to present to, so you can see if the product suits your needs the best.

    We used a survey to gauge the opinion of the attendees of the presentations on 3 levels, Presentation, Ease of use, Speed of retrieval.
    Only one of the three we short listed managed to present to all of the scenarios, one had some technical difficulties, the other was a complete failure.
    One other key requirement to ask is "Is it standalone?" especially the likes of the "Big" named providers, where if you do not already have the Finance side it will not work very well at all and so will add multiple 000's to the real cost.

    ​Hi Andrew
    At Northern Beaches Council, we have rolled out TechnologOne for our asset management system, and have an internally-developed platform we are using for mobility, which integrates into with TechOne.

    If you're business has Office 365, you can set it up in there. Why pay for another system?
