A long time ago the work load was planned using pencils, paper, charts, memory and with a good wind blowing in the right direction. That was until Kaarbontech developed their range of SMART asset management solutions revolutionising the way projects are planned today.
On the September the 18th 2019 you will have a chance to see the full range of KaarbonTech SMART asset management solutions used to their full potential. Not only will the software solutions be in use but also KaarbonTech will share their best practice methods they have gained by working with our 40% of the local authorities in the UK.
KaarbonTech LIVE 2019
Last year were joined by colleagues from more than 40 UK council areas currently using KaarbonTech solutions to manage their drainage networks.
KaarbonTech LIVE is a free event held (INVITATION ONLY) where interactive round table discussions allow the sharing of best practice methods between councils.
We will provide system training, engaging topics from risk-based programs to smart cities. Spend the day exchanging ideas and experiences in a relaxed learning environment.
You will have the opportunity to vote on which new feature or process we create next, (only votes from the event will be counted).
What can I expect from the event?
The content will cover some of the daily challenges you face, including:
- – Advancements with reports – Quicker ways to get answers
- – Getting clarity from Key Performance Indicators
- – The differences between asset, program and defect management
- – What and how to integrate with other systems
Round table discussions on:
- – Risk based programs and scheduling
- – What and how to integrate between systems
- – Securing additional funding
- –Sharing data with the public

Data Sets And Presentation Of Information
Numbers do a great job of filling our rational need for quantifiable information. But when it comes to communicating how things will actually impact our real lives, or affect the world we live in, some form of humanizing or grounding the data in reality is often effective.
“Sometimes that can be achieved by putting a photograph which relates to your work next to your data. Anything besides a table of raw numbers makes assessing the true, real-world implications of data an easier task for the everyday user.
Reporting Made Easy With SMART Asset Management Software Solutions from KaarbonTech
Most networks still report progress on a number achieved vs program with little knowledgeof the detail within. “We planned to do 10,000 this month and achieved 10,000” so we’re on target…. Probably not. Which 10,000 did you do? Where they this month’s, last month’s or next month’s?
Focus on things you didn’t do in more detail rather than just accepting it as apercentage level. You will soon realise the power of your software when you try and get clarity here. Things that generic systems struggle to manage are;
- Classifying why a gully wasn’t running
- Separating “cleans” from “Operational on leaving”
- Managing repeat visits
- Time elapsed since defects were raised
- Reporting and budgeting for follow up work
- Opening visibility of defects to cyclical crews
