Australia’s Fairfield City Council Successfully Implements Oracle® Utilities Work and Asset Management


Oracle today announced that Fairfield City Council of New South Wales, Australia has successfully implemented Oracle(r) Utilities Work and Asset Management. The implementation delivers a comprehensive view of the city’s numerous infrastructure assets, enabling greater efficiency in making strategic management decisions.
Fairfield City is home to approximately 182,000 people. The city covers an area of approximately 104 square kilometers and incorporates 27 suburbs. The City Council’s vision includes responsibly maintaining and managing the city’s built and natural assets, infrastructure, landscape and cultural centers.

In order to best protect its assets, the city council sought to improve its overall approach to managing the city’s assets, including more efficient management of budgets and works programs. In addition, they were seeking to streamline the planning process for procuring new assets.

“Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management has substantially changed the manner in which the council maintains and manages its assets,” said Alan Young, City Manager, Fairfield City Council. “By capturing variables such as cost, maintenance and depreciation, staff can use the solution to access information required to track, maintain and protect our city’s built and natural assets for the benefit of our residents and businesses. Over time, the Oracle system will afford the Council a more comprehensive view of the locations and conditions of our capital assets, enabling staff to make quicker and more accurate business decisions. The asset management system is a long-term development project that will allow the Council to harness the full power of the system as staff expertise continues to grow.”

“We are pleased to extend the benefits of Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management to Australia for the first time,” said Brett Roveda, Vice President and General Manager for Japan and Asia Pacific, Oracle Utilities Global Business Unit. “Fairfield City Council’s implementation also underscores the importance our solutions play in enabling municipalities to serve their residents and businesses accurately and efficiently. We look forward to continuing our work with the city to help improve performance and increase efficiencies across diverse departments through a single, integrated solution.”

Launched in 1986, Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management (formerly SPL Enterprise Asset & Work Management) is a best-of-breed software solution designed to optimize all types of capital resources for asset intensive industries.
