What is asset management?

Asset management is:

  • a business model
  • a decision support system
  • a management approach that can be used across an agency

More simply, asset management helps you proactively prepare for the future. SAM IS® supports smart decision-making by monitoring infrastructure assets, such as pavement, signage, bridges, culverts, water and sewer pipes, valves, hydrants, streetlights, and sidewalks. Assets are inventoried, assigned a condition, and analyzed to help manage priorities and funding. SAM IS™ allows your organization to plan and program proactively, rather than reacting to existing conditions.

SAM IS®: Powerful and simple to use.
