Christchurch has recently been doing work to make its asset data available to all staff. The RAMM mapping tools have been instrumental in this. We have created a series of filters within RAMM such that the users can call up assets, condition data, prioritised programmes, and maintenance delivery progress.
The results of this is that staff look at the live data, rather than offline snapshots.
This has direct benefits with respect to identifying and correcting data issues, as well as being more efficient.
