Asset management and compliance

March 2019 IT in Manufacturing

Bosch Munitech, a member of the Bosch Holdings group of multi-disciplinary consulting engineering companies, offers municipalities a smart solution for infrastructure management through assessing assets in the field and transferring the information to a desktop platform.

Engineers, field technicians and geographical information system (GIS) specialists in the Bosch Munitech team, have developed an efficient spatial system to represent fixed assets, in an accessible desktop format.

“The on-line asset registry system includes spatial, technical and financial information, which are used to establish refurbishment costs, routine service and maintenance costs, as well as the costs associated with capital replacement of aged infrastructure,” says Sean Nel, project manager, Bosch Munitech. “The asset register is not only used as a planning and management tool, but also provides accurate data for annual reporting to the Auditor General of South Africa.

“To date, all municipalities we have assisted have received clean audits. Our team’s extensive experience enables us to compile asset registers that are invaluable to our clients, both as an infrastructure management tool and for ensuring audit compliance.”
