Better usage of city’s assets

A city is a multifaceted entity.

There are different neighborhoods, diverse populations, and every kind of professional.

These residents all share something in common. All of them want quick, efficient, seamless city services without hassle or delay.

Coordinating your city’s assets is one of your biggest jobs as a Smart City Manager. Residents depend on the city’s efficiency for access to municipal resources like water, electricity, and gas. They turn to you in times of need, like when a broken water pipe floods their neighborhood.

Today, even if a city possesses IOT-enabled devices, it’s likely they aren’t being utilized to their full capacity. Data is only useful if it can be organized and filtered to create actionable information about a city’s assets. Along the way, this kind of data organization also helps a city save money and offer more services to city residents.

Providing all those services is a significant task, especially if you have to manage separate systems, on separate networks, with no way to understand their relationship or interdependency.

It’s Thinkz’ goal to integrate all these systems – with the aim of making life better for all of a city’s residents.

Here are just a few of the areas where Thinkz technology will allow you better manage your city’s assets:

  • Prompt notification about electricity, water, communication outages.
  • The ability to preserve human life during natural disasters.
  • Ensuring public infrastructure (bridges, roads, tunnels, traffic lights) are in good working order and alerting residents if they are not.
  • Monitoring weather changes to protect the lives of citizens.
  • Assuring public safety and creating an environment of wellbeing.

According to a 2018 McKinsey & Company report:

Cities can use smart technologies to improve some key quality-of-life indicators by 10 to 30 percent – numbers that translate into lives saved, fewer crime incidents, shorter commutes, a reduced health burden, and carbon emissions averted.
