Asset Management

The asset management master file is a single source of information with regards to historical, operational and financial information. The asset management master file can be used for storing information such as asset type or warranty, cost center department or other financial dimensions to which maintenance expenses are to be posted, and much more.

Work Orders

With work order management, Dynamics Utility Asset Management provides accurate information about future preventive maintenance as well as ad-hoc maintenance. Dynamics Utility Asset Management serves as a central point of information where your employees can keep relevant work order status updated. Having accurate information available lets you monitor and track the open work order effectively and efficiently.

Preventive Maintenance & Scheduling

Planned and preventive maintenance work orders offer great flexibility in managing different types of maintenance activities. Dynamics Utility Asset Management offers full flexibility in defining maintenance schedules for preventive maintenance. Preventive work orders can be generated automatically. Just like ad-hoc work orders, the preventive work orders will appear in the to-do list of the maintenance planner to be assigned to the technicians or engineers.
