IMGS allows Monaghan County Council to develop and leverage highly productive, map-based asset management workflows.
With a population of more than 61,000 County Monaghan, is known for its small hills, lakes and forests.
Like many local and central government agencies across the country, Monaghan County Council manages a wide range of land and buildings assets. However, the council relied on paper-based files and spreadsheets to manage its property portfolio, an inefficient process that could lead to errors.
Needing a better way to understand the property across its portfolio and share asset information, Monaghan County Council decided to implement a map-based asset management system to streamline operations and improve property data accuracy and quality.
Improving Asset Management
IMGS implemented Asset Register, a lightweight solution based on Hexagon’s M.App Enterprise. It provides a single view of Monaghan County Council’s full property asset portfolio in a modern and scalable solution.
Asset Register frees up users from non-essential tasks and enables them to focus their efforts through highly productive, map-based asset management workflows. The council can easily create, edit and delete workflows to quickly meet emerging property management needs resulting from new legislation or other factors. “Monaghan Asset Register system provides the council with the tools to effectively manage all building and land assets under the councils’ control in the public interest”, said Alan Hall, Senior Executive Engineer, Monaghan County Council. “The new system allows council staff to easily access, examine and update all assets. Any updates are stored and shared in real time with other users of the system.”
Streamlining Property Portfolio Management
The solution also leverages Safe Software’s FME Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) capabilities, which provides a dynamic reporting engine for generating detailed reports on an individual property or on assets across the entire portfolio.
With these reports and the solution’s geospatial business intelligence dashboards, the council can turn data into actionable information, allowing departments to understand the asset portfolio, interrogate the key information and aid in faster and more effective decision-making.
By enhancing overall collaboration and data sharing, Asset Register enables the council to streamline its property portfolio management efforts. “It allows for improved governance and management of the councils’ asset portfolio,” Hall said.
