Fort Collins, CO and Sandy, UT - Azteca Systems, Inc., the leading provider of GIS-centric management solutions, and CartoPac Field Solutions (www.cartopac.com), providing advanced mobile field data solutions, announced an alliance to promote the compatibility of the CartoPac and Cityworks software products. CartoPac’s GPS enabled field solutions can easily be used to collect asset and infrastructure data from the geodatabase which is immediately accessible to Cityworks asset and maintenance management. These mutually complimentary solutions allow customers in municipal public works, utilities, oil & gas companies, and others interested in streamlining field data collection, with instant access to GIS data and field solutions without expensive integration, risky synchronization, or multiple, linked databases.
Both GIS-centered products, Cityworks and CartoPac operate alongside each other offering a combined solution without needing a special interface or integration. CartoPac Mobile tools collect asset and infrastructure data, with or without GPS, while enforcing business rules within the Cityworks geodatabase, thus giving customers the advantage of managing assets that can be utilized in both systems. At the same time, the work order and asset management tools in Cityworks can be leveraged into the field using the CartoPac Mobile software. The combination of the products allow users to streamline workflow of field data collection and spatially enabled work management, increasing efficiency in both the office and field, resulting in significant time and cost savings.
“Azteca Systems and CartoPac Field Solutions offer complimentary technologies so we are excited about this partnership,” says Glenn Vlass, president of CartoPac Field Solutions. “Cityworks is the leading GIS-centric asset management system while CartoPac is leading the industry with mobile field solutions. Combining these two technologies offers greater value than the individual offerings from each company. Plus, they streamline the overall process of asset management with field data collection and field data management, increasing efficiency and saving the client time and money.”
"Azteca Systems is pleased to acknowledge this strategic alliance with CartoPac Field Solutions," states Brian Haslam, president of Azteca Systems. "Cityworks and CartoPac work so well together and without the need for anything special – no integration required. Both products offer the added benefit of being GIS-centric – able to read and write to a customers’ geodatabase. This offers our mutual clients an excellent solution for managing assets and infrastructure across many industries – public works, utilities, energy, oil and gas and a host of others."
