– Cityworks announces the release of Cityworks 15.1, making the care of critical infrastructure, capital assets, and property easier and more straightforward than ever. Cityworks 15.1—Platform 4.1 introduces Cityworks “apps” —functional applications that run parallel to the platform, providing faster updates for fixes and new functionality.
Cityworks 15.1—Platform 4.1 includes updates to Cityworks AMS and PLL, Web Services (APIs), and Storeroom, as well as the release of the Cityworks apps. As part of the enhancements to the core functionality, Cityworks AMS now provides more robust options and methodology for inspection data as well as a new design for comments to support extended functionality, formatting, and preferences for end users. GIS-centric functionality has also been furthered to support population of GIS data across fields on service requests, work orders, and inspections.
New functions related to Respond 1.1 include a standardized layout and design for ease of use and responsiveness across multiple devices. This version improves upon the initial release of Respond and provides a superior UI and design, as well as added functionality. The extended functionality allows users to create and edit work orders and inspections, and to edit service requests.
“We’re really excited that the new model of Cityworks apps will allow us to more efficiently and effectively provide improvements to our clients,” said Becky Tamashasky, executive director of product roadmap. “With this change, individual apps are able to be upgraded on a release cycle independent of the platform. This important improvement allows Cityworks to be more effective as we constantly work to upgrade the existing suite of products and provide expanded functionality as our users’ needs continue to grow and evolve.”
