City of Hohenwald, Tennessee, Eases Workload with OpenGov Asset Management Software

Struggling with managing infrastructure and keeping up with required inspections, staff in the City of Hohenwald, TN, needed an innovative solution, so they partnered with OpenGov, the leader in municipal asset management software.

A City of nearly 4,000 people southwest of Nashville, Hohenwald is home to the largest natural-habitat elephant sanctuary in the United States. There, City staff sought a better approach to managing the infrastructure and improving services to residents. They needed an infrastructure management software that included reliable, easy-to-use mobile tools that provided crews with needed details in the field. The solution also needed to create and track work tasks, help develop preventative maintenance plans, help complete inspections, and integrate with Esri GIS. It was a big request, but one OpenGov Cartegraph Asset Management could answer.

With Cartegraph Asset Management, the City will have the ability to:

  • Create and manage work orders for maintenance, repairs, and inspections. Staff also will be able to track work order statuses and monitor updates in real time.
  • Simplify work assignments so that field crews can use a mobile app to see assigned tasks, attach photos, take notes, enter labor hours, and log materials.
  • Create preventative maintenance schedules, implement recurring maintenance tasks, gauge asset performance, and proactively plan for asset replacements and repairs.
  • Seamlessly integrate the software with ArcGIS. Data delivered through this integration will enhance infrastructure management activities and analysis.
  • Connect with residents by keeping them in the know, ensuring operations flow smoothly, and keeping assets in tip-top shape.

The City of Hohenwald joins thousands of public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
