Rhode Island DOT Chooses Envista to Automate Coordination of Construction Projects With Utilities and Municipalities

Dynamic, Visually Rich Cloud Solution Streamlines Communications and Workflow for More Efficient, Cost-Effective Public Works

BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - - Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of enterprise right-of-way (ROW) coordination solutions via the web, today announced that the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has selected the Envista Enterprise ROW Coordination Platform to manage construction projects in concert with area utility companies and Rhode Island municipalities. RIDOT is responsible for a diverse intermodal transportation system of more than 1,100 miles of roads and approximately 800 bridges across Rhode Island, all managed and maintained by a dedicated staff of 780 professionals.

The automated software-as-a-service from Envista will replace the manual process of sending letters as a means of project notification. Instead, electronic notifications will allow for more frequent and timely project status updates and schedule changes among all stakeholders. Envista's web-based coordination platform enables RIDOT staff to view and manage their projects in a dynamic, highly visual online environment where they can instantly flag conflicts and trigger real-time communication with any affected entities. Future plans include permit workflow management for street openings and closures, providing a common platform for planned construction, permitting and inspections.

Brad Steer, Envista's Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, said, "We are very pleased to have the Rhode Island DOT join the growing family of Envista customers. In today's economy, organizations in both the public and private sectors must find innovative ways to improve efficiency without large capital expenditures. As a subscription-based cloud solution, Envista provides RIDOT with a very cost-effective way to utilize its available assets and human resources to optimize street performance, reduce costs and minimize environmental impact, ultimately delivering better service to the citizens of Rhode Island."
