Our Insights

Municipal and utility companies have hundreds and even thousands of assets that need to be managed as cities continue to grow. Fluctuations in the useful life of these assets require budgets and project resources to constantly change and the long term projects, typical of utility and municipal capital investment planning, have a huge impact on the quality of life for local people.

CIPAce™ provides useful predictive models which can identify, within a 3-to-5-year window, the type of asset renewal that will be required and provides cost saving justification for infrastructure investments. Close management of the schedule and operational impacts assists in the decision-making process.
