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.
Functional equipment is at the heart of service delivery
All these services are dependent on functional equipment and facilities. While the selection and acquisition of 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. It takes a balancing act of asset performance, cost and risk to realise the intended value. Pragma understands this and has developed a functionally rich portfolio of water, electricity, and facilities infrastructure solutions.
A broad spectrum of asset management solutions
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 the development of an infrastructure asset management policy, strategy and plan right through to the scheduling of 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.
A custom road map to improve your asset management maturity
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 are aligned with local and international standards such as ISO 55 000 and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), ensuring compliance and peace of mind for asset owners.
