Regional Vueworks Workshop; presented by Farr West Engineering
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Farr West Engineering and Vueworks Software are pleased to offer these two single day asset management seminars to local governments and utilities. The seminars will start off with presentations by local leaders in GIS based asset management, providing invaluable insight on why GIS and asset management are critical to good infrastructure management, how they use their GIS based asset management systems, and the difficulties they overcame both organizationally and technically. These presentations will be of great value to any General Manager, Director of Public Works, Operations Manager, or Engineer. Farr West Engineering will speak about GIS data development and their capabilities to build GIS data to support asset management, as well as their asset management professional services. Vueworks will present new and exciting asset management technologies currently in development. All sessions will be interactive – questions and comments are encouraged. The workshops offer 4.5 Contact Hours for continuing education purposes.

When & Where
At VUEWorks, LLC, we develop, market, and support an affordable, Work and Asset Management solution that helps state and local governments, utilities, corporations, schools, theme parks, and other organizations take in Service Requests, manage work, track condition, minimize failure risk, optimize expenditures, and estimate project costs for any combination of assets.
The VUEWorks solution at its most basic level is a "share the map" viewer to bring your GIS to all your users without expensive and technically demanding desktop licensing. Everyone can use the maps without the steep learning curve normally associated with geographic information systems. At its next level, it is a work management system that enables the user to capture citizen concerns and issues, initiate, plan (preventive maintenance) and capture work efforts, and manage all resources used in the work – labor, materials and equipment. At the highest level, VUEWorks is a strategic asset management solution that incorporates condition assessment, risk analysis, valuation, budget forecasting, and project for managing any asset.
