Fifteen years later and the municipality still uses it.
Asset Management by Ultimo was a find for Dordrecht. A find that continued to be used by several other departments as well. At the moment three departments – Water management, Port Authorities and Parking – use the system. The technology was, and still is, developed further and the municipality uses many of the options the software offers.
Ultimo essential part of operations
Ultimo is the basis for the City of Dordrecht in which it manages processes to make responsible choices. And it helps to professionalise budgeting and daily operations. Because these three departments work with Ultimo they are professionalising together operations that have become so much more transparent. Important processes are now managed with ease: like recording assets (decomposition), failures, maintenance history and long-term asset management.
Results the City of Dordrecht achieved since starting to use Ultimo:
- Grip on third party activities.
- Responsible maintenance budgets, also long-term.
- Understanding important management information like failure analyses.
The market unless…
Ultimo is a fully web-based Asset Management system. This offers so many opportunities. For instance: Ultimo plays a key role in supporting the policy choice for ‘the market unless …’. Where possibly the work will be executed by third parties in future. To manage this process best these parties must always be able to access data of assets to do their job. Then the municipality can approve the work, granting a continuous handle on what is happening. Keeping the municipality in control.
