Throughout May, Worldview Solutions provided on-site training to over 100 Newport News Public Works staff on the latest version of Cityworks.

This upgraded system is a complete web-based platform that replaces the desktop version of the Cityworks software suite. The upgrade to this new web-based platform is a significant paradigm shift for the city in how they utilize their asset management platform and will allow the city to save money by reducing software licensing required to support their older implementation.
