Newport News Waterworks, a regional water provider owned and operated by the City of Newport News, Va., has selected the AssetWorks integrated asset management systems ― FleetFocus, FuelFocus, and EAM ― to manage its broad network of fleet, facilities, and infrastructure assets.

AssetWorks integrated product suite was selected to replace an in-house developed system. Newport News Waterworks initial interest was for a fleet management software integrated with a fuel management system, however it expanded to include the new EAM infrastructure management system once they learned that one vendor could provide all the functionality they were seeking.

“Among the reasons we selected AssetWorks integrated asset management solution is their demonstrated ability to accommodate the broad range of assets that we must manage, the enhanced parts and purchasing functionality and their willingness to work with and listen to us about the asset management needs of a water utility,” states David Cooper, Project Lead, Newport News Waterworks. “There is tremendous value for us to work with a single partner for software who understands the complex nature of the various assets and support systems we manage, while striving to provide the best service possible for the residents of the greater Newport News area.”  

AssetWorks recently launched EAM Infrastructure Management software to manage complex operational assets including networks of linear- and boundary-based assets such as roads, pipelines, and parks.

Newport News Waterworks serves more than 400,000 people in Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, and portions of York County and James City County. Newport News Waterworks maintains over 1,700 miles of treated water pipelines.
