Louisiana DOTD chooses Intergraph solution

Louisiana chooses Intergraph solution.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) recently chose Intergraph and Cambridge Systematics as its integrated, automated routing and permitting solution; choosing Intergraph will improve traveler safety and customer service throughout the roads of Louisiana.

"The automated permitting and routing solution will improve customer service through quicker turn-around time on OS/OW permits," Tammy Anderson, transportation permits manager, Louisiana DOTD, said. "Most important, Intergraph's solution will enable DOTD to provide a safe highway network for the traveling public through intelligent routing and real-time restriction management."

The department will substitute its current legacy, in-house developed oversize and overweight (OS/OW) vehicle permitting system for the new Intergraph OS/OW routing and permitting solution. Intergraph enables new capabilities such as real-time restriction management and intelligent routing. Now the department will have a seamless, web-based application, making it easier to issue its OS/OW vehicle programs.

"Intergraph's automated permitting and routing solution improves efficiencies, enabling industry users to receive most permits in less than 10 minutes -- any time, day or night -- without the involvement of a permit agent," Steve Powers, vice president of Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure, said. "Our easy-to-use, yet powerful application will help automate processes, creating an intelligent, real-time solution. We're proud to assist Louisiana DOTD in its efforts to provide citizens with a safe and reliable transportation network."
