Enterprise asset management

Turning asset management into competitive advantage

The utilities industry is one of the most asset-intensive in the world. At all points along the supply chain, managers need to be aware of the condition, location and availability of their assets to maximize productivity, reduce downtime and operate safely.

Effective asset management makes it possible to keep track of each asset, generate valuable information from each and, with that information, drive business performance and results.

CGI specializes in delivering enterprise asset management services and solutions that help utilities get the most from their assets and transform asset management into a powerful competitive advantage.

What we offer

We approach asset management from four functional areas:

  • Asset & Resource Management (ARM) suite: A business tool box that can be applied as an entire suite or as individual components. It offers organizational control over asset, work, resource and field processes and provides for the collection of critical operational data.
  • Asset information management (AIM): We offer AIM solutions that deliver valuable asset information and analytics throughout the entire asset lifecycle to improve your overall asset management capabilities and results.
  • Proactive asset management (PAM): This involves monitoring and controlling the condition of your assets. We offer solutions, such as innovative and secure supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, that enable you to achieve effective monitoring and control—remotely and in the field.
  • Geospatial information systems (GIS): With our expertise in this area, we can help you pinpoint and exploit the physical location of your assets in real time for better, faster responsiveness and decision making.

We offer a large portfolio of EAM solutions—including our own intellectual property and innovative solutions from our alliances with the world’s leading EAM vendors. We also provide end-to-end services, including business consulting, systems integration services, business process services and IT outsourcing services.

The value we deliver

Accurate, real-time asset information creates a dynamic, holistic and detailed picture of your operations. And, through mobile technology, your workforce can easily access this information anytime, anywhere. As a result, you gain greater insight and control over what’s happening across your entire operations, achieving the following benefits:

  • Improved asset performance at reduced cost
  • More efficient, integrated workflows
  • Integration of asset management with other enterprise systems such as ERP, smart metering/grids and customer service and billing systems
