A country’s economic and social development policy largely depends on its effectiveness in delivering infrastructure and basic services such as electricity, water, sanitation, education, transport and healthcare.
All these services are dependent on functional equipment and facilities. While selecting and acquiring these assets and facilities account for a significant part of their overall cost, it is often the operation and maintenance costs – which contribute to more than 80% of the total life cycle cost – that are overlooked. Realising the intended value takes a balancing act of asset performance, cost, and risk. Pragma understands this and has developed a functionally rich water, electricity, and infrastructure solutions portfolio.
We partner with all spheres of government, agencies and state-owned companies to deliver world-class asset management solutions at strategic, tactical and operational levels. Our solutions range from developing an infrastructure asset management policy, strategy and planning to scheduling daily maintenance tasks. Empowering our clients’ teams through informal and formal interventions is integral to our service delivery, and to this end, we offer formal accredited training through the Pragma Academy.
We regard asset management as a journey. Our unique and flexible approach enables us to customise the journey into a road map using an Asset Management Improvement Planning (AMIP) framework. Our solutions align with local and international standards such as ISO 55 000 and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), ensuring asset owners’ compliance and peace of mind.
Our expertise in asset management has been honed through years of experience in asset-intensive sectors such as mining and petrochemicals. Our ability to translate infrastructure asset management solutions into improved service delivery is unmatched. Our multi-disciplinary teams pride themselves on delivering measurable improvements through a set of processes, tools and technology, empowering clients to have the status of their asset performance at their fingertips.
The Pragma Academy presents a range of valuable asset management courses to enable managers, planners and schedulers to plan and do their work efficiently.
We combine our multi-disciplinary engineering expertise with software expertise to translate clients’ needs into sustainable asset management solutions, enabling clients to be future-ready.
On Key, our best-of-breed EAM system facilitates the maintenance of infrastructure assets over full life cycles and can be integrated with many financial systems.
