System managers can use Philips CityTouch to create type catalogs, which make it simple to select resources and assign them to individual light points. Type catalogs for poles, luminaires, lamps, and brackets include all frequently- and recently-used types, technical information, and additional userconfigurable information. Type catalogs allow system users to generate and view detailed information on lighting-specific business processes as quickly and easily as possible. They also make mass detection and maintenance tasks, such as re-lamping, very quick and easy.
Because all operation-relevant processes are noticeably simplified and transparent, CityTouch has made the working relationship between the city and the utility provider much more flexible.
