City of Tampa Drives Innovation and Efficiency for Public Works Projects With Envista Cloud-Based Right-of-Way Coordination PlatformCloud Solution Streamlines Project Coordination, Identifies Opportunities for Cost Savings and Minimizes Street Disruption (May 23, 2012)
BEVERLY, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/23/12 -- Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of enterprise right-of-way (ROW) coordination solutions via the web, today announced that the City of Tampa, Florida, selected the Envista Enterprise ROW Coordination Platform to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of coordinating public works projects, aimed at saving money, reducing environmental impact and enhancing public satisfaction.
Recognized for its innovative use of technology and ranked highly among other world-class cities by England's prestigious Loughborough University, Tampa is the latest forward-thinking city to adopt Envista. With Envista's real-time coordination of project details in the cloud, visually shared among multiple stakeholders simultaneously, the City has a powerful tool to identify cost savings opportunities, avoid conflicts and prevent unnecessary street cuts. For example, after a paving project is completed, Envista Project Coordination enables Tampa to automatically tag streets to control any new excavation. This feature helps enforce street cut moratoriums more effectively. Similarly, the City can view where future paving is scheduled, enabling project stakeholders to plan and complete their work before final paving takes place.
Irv Lee, Tampa's Director of Public Works, said, "When we pave a road, we only want to do it once and keep our streets free from continual disruption. Envista is a great example of how technology can be leveraged to use taxpayer dollars more efficiently. By automating manual processes, providing greater visibility of information across the organization, and minimizing costly street cuts, Envista is helping the City of Tampa save time and money."
Mark Prestipino, Envista's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Tampa has proven to be a city of great vision, and Envista is very pleased to help City project leaders drive greater innovation and efficiency. With Envista's cloud-based solutions, Tampa can leverage the most advanced technology without a large capital outlay, and instantly share and manage project information online to streamline processes for both immediate and long-term savings."
