A street-light replacement programme in the London borough of Hackney is being co-ordinated using software designed for street lighting services.
The Mayrise street lighting system provides a single repository for all information relating to the service, including detailed lighting unit history, contractor data and customer communications.
"Mayrise already provides an integrated system for recording asset information in our maintenance and replacement scheme," said Steve Carroll, team leader for street lighting in the council's neighbourhoods and regeneration division. "This upgrade means we can continue to provide safer streets through high-quality street lighting,"
The council's long-term objective was to improve its working practices, said Carroll, and it was also working on strategies for paperless offices, mobile working and remote monitoring.
"Street lighting is one of the council's highly visible frontline services," he added. "Having the information we need at click of a button helps us manage our day-to-day operations and improves the speed with which we can react to faults."
