Municipalities and Public Works
Public Works Departments are held accountable by tax payers for providing many of the basic services that affect the daily lives of everyone who lives and works in a city. Primarily, a public works department is responsible for the things most citizens take for granted on a daily basis: the administration, planning, maintenance, and construction management of a city's potable water, waste water, storm water and street/traffic flow infrastructure. These facilities are expected to operate on-demand without exception often across large expanses of geography. This industry relies on varied sources of funding that aggregate together to finance operation of the facilities. Operating funds are typically derived from user fees, utility charges and general taxes while capital funds are mostly bond funded. Finally, this industry is required to make information public and constantly improve the transparency of its operations and decision-making processes. If you are working within this industry can your department:
Rapidly respond to bond initiatives and track and manage the resulting projects from planning, to engineering and design, to construction through to the operation and maintenance phases of a project?
Provide reports (such as cost and cost variance information) required to meet public transparency requirements without undue delay and/or drain on existing manpower?
Disseminate information – in real time - across the organization when requested for things like responding to a citizen request for service, a work crew's need for a procedure, a laboratory’s requirements for a test method and an inspector’s findings at a work site?
Effectively and efficiently plan, perform and assess the quality of workmanship of work crews across the full geographic expanse of the city?
If managing tasks like these is carrying a high administrative cost or is taking away from time spent in the field (or even worse time spent with your family at home) then perhaps it is time for you to investigate the power of ATSER software solutions.

Transportation including Roadways
ATSER's software solutions for management of large, design-build road construction projects deliver significant savings in both dollars and time. Highway and bridge construction projects usually involve significant outlay of capital with multiple fund sources and stakeholders and are complex to implement; therefore timely access to important information is vital.
ATSER Software helps transportation projects by:
- Ensuring that both workmanship and testing are properly managed and reported, reducing the headcount and errors associated with field data collection and analysis.
- Significantly enhancing communication between the field and the office.
- Improving analysis of contractor's performance.
- Dispatching of Testing and Inspection Staff and Third-Parties.
- Real-time drawings in the field for quick resolution to work stoppages.
Want to find a way to speed up your construction projects without sacrificing quality or budget requirements? ATSER’s software has been utilized in numerous transportation projects and has continuously been refined to incorporate best practices learned through these projects. Contact your local ATSER Account Representative to see a demo of the best practices embedded into the ATSER suite of software.
