Waterloo Region Uses Intergraph Solutions for Immediate Entry of Roadway Information

The region of Waterloo is one of the fastest growing areas in Ontario,Canada, with a population of more than 450,000. The region’s proximity to north American markets and transportation networks is a major factor in Waterloo’s economic growth, and roadway maintenance is of critical importance. Waterloo’s Transportation and Environmental Services Department needed an information system that would reduce the time required for field personnel to bring road reports back to the office and manually enter data. This would enable managers to better allocate resources and obtain more reports on road conditions and actions required. The department also wanted to automate many of its manual work processes to improve the accuracy of road data and increase accountability in the management of 1,684 kilometers of roadway.
