Selecting a CMMS: Stepping Up Your Public Asset Management Game

LLumin's Insight

Municipal water utilities are made up of assets, including pipes, valves, tanks, pumps, wells, hydrants, treatment facilities and other components.

The Water Finance Research Foundation says that municipal utilities that move from paper-based systems to computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) can realize an estimated 12 to 18 percent cost savings.
