PHOENIX, Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Water Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: GWRS), (TSX: GWR), a pure-play water resource management company, received Cityworks’s 2022 Excellence in Departmental Practice Award at Cityworks Innovate Conference held last month in Salt Lake City.
The award was presented by Cityworks, a provider of the leading geographic information system (GIS) centric solution for public asset management. The award highlights how Global Water demonstrated leadership and creativity in applying public asset management strategies to daily operations and long-term planning.
Since 2006, Global Water has been using Cityworks Server Asset Management System (AMS) that enables more accurate budgeting, precise resource allocation, efficient workflows, expedited customer response, and efficient coordination with partner municipalities.
“We are honored to be recognized by the leader in GIS solutions for public asset management,” said Global Water president and CEO, Ron Fleming. “Cityworks has helped us maintain lower rates and high-quality water and wastewater infrastructure for the communities we serve. They have also enabled us to generate a higher return on our investments in infrastructure and new acquisitions.”
Fleming continued: “I would like to thank our employees who spearhead these important efforts every day. This award reflects their dedication to our core values of innovation, continuous improvement, and quality customer service.”
Global Water recently announced a new project in development at the Inland Port Arizona mega-site where Global Water will be working with Procter & Gamble to provide water, wastewater and recycled water services to P&G’s new manufacturing facility. Global Water plans to use Cityworks for this project.
