Wyoming DOT Expands to Mobile Resource Management System

July 15, 2010

CHEYENNE, WY - Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) through its Wyolink state agency is expanding their CompassCom Software system to an enterprise Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solution for the state.

CompassCom Software integrated their system with the Wyolink statewide Motorola Radio network, utilized Wyoming's investment in ESRI GIS, and captures data from snow plow instrumentation. WYDOT utilizes CompassTrac for real-time automatic vehicle location (AVL) and CompassReports for historical analysis to optimize the use of the state's resources. This solution provides better service and reduced costs while operating with the existing Wyolink radio network.

"WYDOT's Transportation Management Center operators are using the system to track maintenance vehicles.  During storm events, such tracking can be critical." said Vince Garcia, program manager for WYDOT. "During the upcoming year, our intent is to expand our use of the system and to gather detailed information from the plows through the AVL system.  In doing so, plow operators can focus on plowing roads while sensors are reporting plowing operations to our TMC."

Installation of this enterprise MRM system supports driver safety, efficient use of de-icing material, accountability of assets and effective fleet management.  Utilization of the CompassCom Software GPS based fleet management solution typically delivers 15 percent to 20 percent saving in fleet operations while improving customer service. This type of return on investment is critical for today's government initiatives and provides more service with fewer resources, according to the company.
