JMT Technology Group's Latest Field Asset Management Application Receives Accolade
December 12, 2012Location: Washington, D.C.
The DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) honored JMT
Technology Group and our business partner, Esri, with an
Outstanding Downtown Partnership/Program "Momentum Award" for a new
mobile application that the BID uses for field asset management
The cloud-based, mobile application allows the BID to view and
monitor public space activity in real time and to convey issues
more efficiently to partnering agencies such as DC government,
National Park Service, and Washington Metropolitan Area Transit
DowntownDC BID staff may report on the condition of assets such
as street poles, sidewalks, and trees, and a current asset and GIS
inventory is much simpler to maintain. The application uses Esri
ArcGIS technology to better manage public space, analyze data,
produce maps, and improve decision making. Rich Bradley,
Executive Director of the DowntownDC BID, explains the added value:
"This really advances our technological abilities and places the
collaborative efforts with the local government on a new level.
We're excited to see this project evolve and become a new standard
for monitoring and administering the public space."
JMT Technology Group worked closely with the BID to understand
all the unique problems and concerns occurring downtown, resulting
in a carefully developed, customized mobile application. "The
DowntownDC BID solution provides the mechanism to collect the
information, report it to the city via Open311 standards, and
generate reports for performance measurement," says Tim Abdella,
Senior Associate from JMT Technology Group. "It not only saves time
and money in the field, it provides actionable information that
improves the quality of life in the district."
