ASSET MANAGEMENT OF THE NATIONAL PROPERTY PORTFOLIO

WHO IS ALCM?
ALCM is a technology consultancy focused on providing integrated solutions for the management of assets throughout their life cycle. We develop solutions that allow for effective management of assets based on informatics that provide accurate real views of actual operating environments

BACKGROUND
The National Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (NDPWI) is the custodian of Immovable Assets comprising of approximately 35 000 land parcels, which are either vacant or improved, and 110 000 buildings. The NDPWI is responsible for the Immovable Asset Register and for maintaining and reporting on the assets.

THE CHALLENGE
The project team did not encounter any challenges with the integration. However, in our implementation, we had to ensure that the asset data received from the client, such as the GPS co-ordinates, were accurate and in the correct format.

THE SOLUTION
The ArcGIS solution is used to spatially represent the asset portfolio in the form of points or polygons denoting the actual land parcel shape and the buildings that are situated on these land parcels.

Users can use different base maps to view assets in different locations.

The ArcGIS modules are used by the client in various ways:
Real Estate Portfolio Management: The NDPWI Portfolio Managers, Real Estate Directors, and Lease Administrators use this module to view and examine assets in the portfolio on a geospatially enabled map.

Asset Module: The NDPWI REIRS branch uses the platform to identify all assets owned by NDPWI as part of their asset verification exercises.

Building Operation: Facility Managers, Maintenance Managers, and Building Managers use the platform to view the locations of logged service requests.

CONCLUSION
The ArcGIS integration provides users with an enhanced presentation of asset data as well as improved dashboard view reports. Features, such as automated zoom-in functionality to each asset and the ability to download immediate reports, has enhanced user efficiency. read more
