Small City Hits Big Homerun with GIS & Asset Management Software

West Point, UT – The city of West Point, UT has recently expanded their GIS and work management software, reducing costs and increasing return on investment.

As one of the fastest growing cities in Utah, West Point adopted Elements Management Software by novotX in late 2006 to integrate their developing GIS with a work management package. Top priorities for the city included the ability to create work orders, log phone calls, keep track of job costing, and manage maintenance schedules in a GIS-centric environment.

Recently West Point has recently expanded the software to manage business licenses, building permits, inspections, and certificates of occupancy in a GIS-centric environment.

Boyd Davis, City Engineer and GIS Administrator, says the greatest advantage of using Elements is that the software “combines many functions into one user-friendly software package.”

“Our greatest success so far has been implementing the inventory tracking features. When our public works employees complete a work order they input the amount of time spent on each work order and any parts or supplies that were used during the job. This makes it easy for us to keep track of where our time and resources are being spent. The need for asset management and work order tracking is something that every city needs” says Davis.

Since the original implementation of Elements Management Software, additional departments have taken advantage of the technology and the software now reaches far beyond public works. West Point is currently using Elements Management Software in the following departments:
• Water Department
• Wastewater Department
• Code Enforcement
• Building Department
• Permits & Licenses

Plans to expand Elements Management Software into additional departments are currently in the works.
