Eliminating paperwork in the inspections will streamline the process, saving money and providing for better public safety.
Manchester, NH (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
International Coding Technologies, Inc. announced today that the North Carolina Department of Transportation is using its Idencia information tracking service to streamline inspections of products manufactured for use in the construction of its public infrastructure projects.
Precast concrete structures purchased by the NC DOT will be manufactured to include one of Idencia’s RFID tags (or any other equivalent). Information about the manufacturing process will be input to the Idencia system while the structure is being produced. When manufacturing is complete, the NC DOT inspector simply scans the tag to approve its use in public infrastructure. The entire manufacturing and inspection history of the product remains on file with the precast manufacturer and paper is eliminated from the process.
Randy Pace, Materials Operations Manager, states, “The NC DOT is excited to launch our electronic records initiative. Eliminating paperwork in the inspections will streamline the process, saving money and providing for better public safety. As important as this is to efficient and effective management of the public’s money, it will also be a more efficient process for our vendors.” He added, “Vendors may use any system but they are asked to transmit these records to the NC DOT’s Idencia site in electronic form.”
Tom Tilson, president and founder of ICT, stated, “We are delighted to work with the North Carolina DOT in offering Idencia to its vendors. We have developed a way for vendors to participate that will immediately reduce the cost of compliance with NC DOT inspection requirements. We also offer more fully featured versions of Idencia that vendors can use with their smartphones or PCs to view production records, locate inventory in the yard, and manage logistics electronically. So, we expect to add a lot of value to the NC DOT business community.”
