Profile of Success: Chicago Transit Authority and Infor EAM Enterprise Edition

28 June, 2011

In 2009, Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) announced that it had selected Infor EAM Enterprise Edition to help reduce costs and increase productivity and became yet another in the growing number of success stories Infor has to share. CTA, the nation’s second-largest public transit agency, provides transportation for the City of Chicago and its 40 surrounding suburbs and will be using Infor’s EAM solution to determine optimum performance and maintenance levels on its more than 200 facilities.

CTA is leveraging Infor’s EAM Enterprise Edition for asset management and reliability tracking for historical information to allow data analysis. They can then determine optimal maintenance intervals and equipment inspection cycles. CTA is also using handheld devices, such as cell phones, to help manage the maintenance of its train stations, bus garages, and other remote facilities. In addition, Infor EAM Enterprise Edition is playing a part in helping CTA increase labor efficiency and reduce overtime.

CTA is also in the process of implementing Infor’s EAM advanced mobile solution which will allow the agency to transmit work orders to and from field units over a wireless data connection for real-time information on work and labor. Supervisors and dispatchers will be able to effectively manage maintenance staff by using up-to-the-minute work tracking and analysis.

If your organization is ready to start recognizing increased efficiency and optimal performance levels, consider checking out Infor’s on-demand public sector webinar, where the CTA team will be demonstrating how they can achieve the benefits of Infor EAM Work, Asset, Inspection, and Mobile modules, working individually and together.
