How Knowvation works with DOTs

Knowvation for Transportation – Discover Through Search

Complexity, diverse data sets and siloed data repositories continue to complicate enterprise access to important information. How valuable is a platform based system that provides a portal for GIS related data, permission based enterprise access to UAS data, full text searching on construction files and CAD drawings all in an intuitive tool that requires minimal training?

Users of an enterprise wide system all have and need their own specific tools to complete projects successfully, so how do they share that proprietary or special data type throughout the organization in a cost effective manner? Adopting an enterprise solution can be tricky and in some ways very challenging. How about an entry point that resembles Google and works on mobile devices? How about an easily scalable solution that maintains speed and efficiency? For those that are secondary users, would it be nice to have a tool that notifies you when new data is created or loaded to the system, eliminating the need to check constantly for this information?

Meet Knowvation™ version 6.0. This geospatial data management platform was designed to keep all of these questions in mind. This system has been proven and tested in strict environments to meet the highest quality demanded by its users. Knowvation can discover data across the enterprise that users may not have known existed, heavily reducing the amount of duplicated data and increasing the value of data that already resides within the organization. Users will have immediate access to geo databases, pdf reports, images, videos, cad files, las files, and many more with a close integration with their LRS. With an intuitive interface and the right permissions, users can link files directly to their LRS.  Watch drone missions play out right in the interface and conduct time comparisons of job sites.

There are so many new features available to the Transportation Industry.  Let PTFS listen to your challenges and watch the solution emerge!
