Blackburn implements Mayrise software

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council has implemented street lighting management software from Mayrise Systems, as part of an ambitious plan to enhance asset management and drive efficiencies within the Council. The deployment is one of a number of projects that the council has designed to develop an exemplary model for managing its highway assets. The scheme has been supported by £400,000 (US$634,000) worth of funding from the Department of Transport (DfT).

The Mayrise Street Lighting software is being used to create and maintain a detailed street lighting inventory, record faults and manage routine and ad hoc maintenance. Faults reported by the public can be logged directly from the call center and the integrated mapping tool allows for easier identification and monitoring of assets in the field. The advanced reporting tools contained within the software are also used to produce essential management reports and have proved invaluable in the Council’s efforts to reduce energy costs. Mayrise Street Lighting is a complete management system designed to simplify and improve the management of street lighting. It provides fast online access to inventory, contractor and customer records and incorporates instant mapping to pinpoint asset or fault locations. Handling cyclic maintenance, fault management, electrical testing and financial control, the software also links to corporate GIS and portable computers for field data entry and mapping.

“The introduction of the Mayrise solution has enabled improved management of our street lighting assets and allows us to meet all required legislation,” commented Ian Darlington, the Council’s street lighting manager. “Following a borough-wide data collection and cleansing exercise, we now have a complete record of all equipment. This improvement in asset management will ensure that energy providers are provided with accurate usage and inventory data and will assist with the street lighting dimming program. Mayrise is also being used for a full works ordering and fault processing system, replacing the previous hand written ordering system, which at times proved antiquated, problematic and time consuming.”
