Project site activity, progress and item location data can seamlessly connect and update agency GIS systems
GAINESVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#appia—Infotech, a leader in infrastructure construction software solutions, announced today it has launched the Appia service and a Construction Data Visualization extension in the Esri ArcGIS Marketplace. With this Esri ArcGIS integration, the Appia service is now a geo-enabled construction administration solution that allows owners to visualize the full story of civil infrastructure projects. In addition, Infotech has earned Silver partner level status within the Esri Partner Network.
By pairing Infotech’s Appia service with Esri ArcGIS, Esri users can visualize critical construction data in public dashboards that provide transparency on dollars spent and progress made as well as private dashboards for team collaboration and information sharing. Additionally, the Appia and ArcGIS integration provides Local Public Agencies (LPAs) with asset location information required for digital as-builts and near-time data updates from field inspections, which provides further transparency on project schedule, payments and funding.
“Working with Esri to geo-enable the construction data managed across our systems and including that critical data during the digital project delivery greatly enhances the handover process to asset management and maintenance systems,” Will McClave, Infotech President of Systems, said. “Being able to take the large amounts of data captured on each project and present it in an easy-to-understand dashboard allows Infotech to continue to support owners with tools that promote transparency.”
The Appia Construction Data Visualization extension allows LPAs and engineering firms to ensure construction data is GIS-enabled. This integration connects near-time construction project data to dynamic ArcGIS dashboards to support insight-driven decision making.
“We look forward to our partnership [with Infotech] which will offer agencies greatly increased capabilities by leveraging our combined strengths,” said Terry Bills, Global Transportation Industry Director at Esri. “Combining Infotech data and systems with the analytical and visualization capabilities of Esri will provide our mutual customers with new levels of insight throughout the project lifecycle.”
