Dundas Data Visualization, Inc., a world leader in Business Intelligence and Data Visualization solutions, announces that Road Safety Analysis has chosen Dundas for its dashboard and data visualization platform. Road Safety Analysis, specialists in providing analysis tools and services to the UK’s road safety community, are today announcing a major investment in their online analysis system which will benefit the hundreds of organisations that use MAST to gain a better insight into road risk in their area.

MAST Online is a powerful yet user-friendly tool for analysing road casualty trends and examining the impact of residence, social and demographic factors on casualty rates. It has been adopted as an essential system by the majority of British highway authorities and is used to plan, develop and evaluate road safety interventions.

Back at its launch in September 2009, MAST revolutionised access to information through a web-based front end which could be used by road safety practitioners, as well as experienced analysts. Developed using a previous Dundas system, we are delighted that Road Safety Analysis has chosen Dundas once again for this project.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to continue our relationship and extend the MAST Dashboard platform online,” said Dundas President and CEO Troy Marchand. “The flexibility of the MAST Dashboard allows for full performance reporting and provides the MAST users with timely information and insights needed to further support road safety.”

The vision for the MAST Dashboard is to combine the existing data structures that lie at the heart of MAST Online with the insight and strategic analysis that forms Road Safety Analysis’s Signpost Series. This will allow members to view performance and progress metrics side-by-side together with specific insight into individual road safety themes.

The new theme-based approach will present information about specific road user groups such as pedestrians, and provide pre-analysed, easy to understand reports that focus on customisable local geographies. Having all of the information in one place, on a single screen will make understanding road risks much easier than ever before.

Richard Owen, Operations Director at Road Safety Analysis said, “We have been working with Dundas extensively already this year to establish the potential for MAST Dashboard and we have been amazed by how quickly we have been able to assemble powerful dashboards. The ability to link to our existing cloud-based data sources has allowed solutions to be rapidly developed with direct integration to our existing data architecture.”

The roll-out of the MAST Dashboard is expected to take place over 18 months, with feedback from members being crucial to ensuring it meets everyone’s requirements as they were in the development of MAST Online. The first dashboards will be released in late 2014 and a sneak preview can be seen by clicking on the following link http://www.roadsafetyanalysis.co.uk/mast-dashboard/.
