Surface Water and Sewers, Public Works
Surface Water and Sewers Director Katrina Kessler nominated the team for their innovative thinking and problem-solving to successfully launch the Maximo work order software in the division:
“The implementation of Maximo will allow the Surface Water and Sewers division within Public Works to quantify the value of, and effort required to maintain, thousands of miles of pipe and associated infrastructure components. This will facilitate a more effective budgeting of time, money and human resources to maintain and enhance the City's critical sanitary and storm sewer assets.
“The successful rollout and implementation of Maximo would not have been possible without the individual and collective efforts of every team member. Together they embraced the opportunity to innovate, effectively communicated the value of the change to coworkers, and set up the system to yield long-term positive results for the division and the City.
“They had to overcome numerous technical obstacles and delays in schedule beyond their control. Nonetheless they stayed positive and took advantage of extra time to ensure business readiness and to champion the change for their coworkers. Their willingness to pull together, innovate and problem solve resulted in a successful rollout.”
