CompassCom and Cityworks integrate systems


Centennial, USA, September 11, 2007: CompassCom Software Corp. announced that it has worked jointly with Azteca Systems Inc. to develop an interface between the CompassLDE automatic vehicle location (AVL) solution and Azteca’s Cityworks asset maintenance management system. This allows Azteca clients to view the status and locations of vehicles in real time on their Cityworks map displays.

The interface between CompassLDE and Cityworks displays georeferenced icons on the digital map screen to show the real-time locations of vehicles that have been equipped with AVL GPS/modem devices. The Cityworks user can click on any individual vehicle icon as it moves across the map to access details of its status, heading and speed. The CompassLDE server technology enables the user to simultaneously track the locations of hundreds of vehicles from multiple fleets.

“CompassCom Software and Azteca have combined two critical public works applications – vehicle tracking and asset maintenance management – into an integrated GIS-centric solution for faster and easier decision making,” said CompassCom Software CEO W. Brant Howard. “These two applications can now be accessed within the enterprise GIS.”

“The integration of CompassLDE and Cityworks offers our customers a unique and powerful solution to managing the resources deployed to care for their assets and critical infrastructure,” said Brian Haslam, President of Azteca Systems. “We believe both existing and potential customers will find this extended solution useful and attractive. And, being GIS-based, this further illustrates the unparalleled benefits of GIS-centric solutions working together.”
