“What we had before was basically a clipboard, measuring wheel and a calculator. Field Express gives a worker the opportunity to take his office out into the field, and to do things in his vehicle more efficiently than he'll be able to do at his office PC,” said Phil Roberson, Albany Public Works Director, “The efficiency we will gain from this, and the way we go about rating streets for resurfacing, will more than pay for the expense of the hardware and software down the line.”
Daniel Rogers, Solutions Engineer for 3-GIS, commented, “We are configuring Albany’s existing road and land base data with tools for reporting street problems and conditions, and inventorying overall the health of the City’s paved surfaces.” He continued, “Providing a history of specific information that can be accessed efficiently across departments will aid in the planning and execution of resurfacing and paving projects.”
Dale Jobes, Vice President of Government Solutions for Magnolia River, said “This implementation demonstrates the success achieved when cost-saving solutions are adopted by great leaders like those at the City of Albany. It is a pleasure to partner with forward-leaning people to increase efficiency and reduce cost.”
