Sandy, USA, November 20, 2007: Azteca Systems, Inc., provider of GIS-centric management solutions announced the release of the Cityworks Metrics Web Service API. This new extension toolkit provides developers a supported web service to interface external data collection systems for the purpose of generating work orders on equipment and facilities.
The Cityworks Metrics Web Service API supports work order creation based on “metrics” or equipment measurements and readings such as mileage, hours of operation, temperature, and gallons. Utilizing inherent Cityworks triggers, data values sent via the service can trigger both routine and emergency work orders. The XML-based service, which supports requests generated in both .Net and Java environments, utilizes a business logic that analyzes data values for routine, threshold, or emergency work activities.
“The release of the Cityworks Metrics Web Service API allows our customers to easily interface a wide variety of measured metrics that may be used to initiate a call for maintenance,” states George Mastakas, Director of Enterprise Services.
