Forcelink Solutions wins Johannesburg Roads Agency as customer
Johannesburg Roads Agency has contracted Forcelink to provision over 100 users for the management of a Smart Pavement Management System, a Smart Way-Leave System and a Smart Bridge Inspection system. JRA required a back-office and mobile system to manage and monitor the three projects separately, and selected Forcelink after a public tender process.
Forcelink will be deployed on a range of devices including Android Tablets and Android and Symbian smartphones, as well as at various back office locations. Speaking about the win, Kennedy Mogotsi, the Forcelink Director under whose guidance the project is being implemented, said “JRA has a specific requirement for a fast roll-out of a mobile solution, and Forcelink met the key requirements of a configurable hosted service catering for large business, with automated workflows, a front-end map displaying work requests, assets, customers, resources and way-leaves and the capability to send photos from mobile devices to the front end map from the field. We believe the Forcelink solution will greatly increase field effectiveness for JRA, ultimately improving customer service. Our on-demand subscriber model means the customer can use the software as required, without dedicated hardware or support or fixed licence charges, thus reducing costs”.
