Envista Corp. has announced its first milestone of maintaining information on more than 50,000 built infrastructure projects since its launch in May 2008.
In early 2008, Envista completed development of its software that combines the latest technologies—internet mapping, spatial database and Web 2.0 tools. Envista's map-driven solution allows project leaders to view all projects on a map, see what work is planned in a specific geographic location, instantly troubleshoot potential conflicts and effectively manage and coordinate the close interdependencies of local infrastructure.
The company is currently working with more than 38 towns, utilities and transportation agencies from the U.S. and Canada in pilot programs or as subscribers, including the city of Baltimore, Baltimore Gas and Electric Company, Providence Water Supply Board and others.
"With the forthcoming economic recovery program, there will be an unprecedented number of infrastructure projects getting underway at the same time,” Envista CEO Rick Fiery stated. “As our 50,000-project milestone attests, Envista is well positioned to support this effort. Now, more than ever, technology will be critical to implement and manage the complexity of project planning and execution."
