Nevada Department of Transportation picks Rolta OnPoint to enhance emergency response capabilities

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) said it has selected Rolta OnPointâ„¢ to enhance its response and recovery capabilities during an emergency or disaster. The solution enables NDOT to easily consolidate and publish in real time road conditions and damage assessments to better serve citizens.

NDOT, as is the case with most Departments of Transportation, needed an effective way to provide real-time digital updates on road closures during emergency situations. While Nevada´s 511 system provides road closure information online or by phone to the public information, NDOT´s mapping system is used as a tool for its staff to manage assets.

Rolta OnPoint displays maps showing areas needing attention and helps prioritize deployment of resources. The system delivers up-to-the-minute information on the status of temporary and long-term highway repairs to law enforcement and fire departments for increased situational awareness.

NDOT was able to dramatically improve information flow internally and with public safety partners. Rolta OnPoint, an innovative solution that enables the rapid publishing of location-based information, operates in both the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) environment and in the field. It supports NDOT´s existing investments in Esri technologies and ArcGIS Online.

Rolta is a leading provider of innovative solutions for many vertical segments, including Federal and State Governments, Defense/HLS, Utilities, Process, Power, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Retail, and Healthcare. The company operates from over 40 locations worldwide and has executed projects in more than 45 countries.
