LONDON (PRWEB UK) 20 March 2018
Indonesia’s Directorate General of Highways—called Direktorat Jenderal Bina Marga, or “Bina Marga”—has chosen to implement AgileAssets® enterprise software to improve the country’s pavement, bridge, and safety management programmes. AgileAssets will provide the development and maintenance of the integrated infrastructure asset management system, and—in partnership with Indonesian technology consulting firm Global Tekno Tritama—will serve as Bina Marga’s implementation partner.
“A new era is dawning for Indonesia’s Road Management System and we want to make things better,” said Nazib Faizal, Head of Bina Marga’s Data Analysis and Systems Sub-Directorate. “With the advanced analytical capabilities of AgileAssets’ software, we are modernizing our asset management programmes to focus on data-driven decision-making, which will enable us to improve safety, reduce costs, and maximize the performance of our roadways.”
As part of Indonesia’s Ministry of Public Works and Housing, Bina Marga maintains a national network of nearly 47,000km (30,000 miles) of roads and about 18,000 bridges on the country’s more than 17,500 islands. With over 261 million inhabitants, the Republic of Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous country.
“We are proud to participate in this groundbreaking project with the excellent teams of Bina Marga and Global Tekno Tritama,” said Pascal Laumet, AgileAssets’ Director of Operations for Europe, the Middle East, and Asia (EMEA). “Our commitment is to deliver a solution that will help improve Indonesia’s return on infrastructure investments and boost road transportation quality for its people.”
This project marks AgileAssets’ first major collaboration with a client in the Asia Pacific region. The relationship has been facilitated by Esri Indonesia, local distributor of Esri’s mapping and spatial analytics technology and a longtime business partner of AgileAssets. At Bina Marga, the AgileAssets system will be fully integrated with Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise platform, enabling stakeholders to analyse visual data and share location-based insights.
“As ministry leaders take a more systematic approach to managing the national road network, we will help them apply geospatial reasoning to quantify the impact of their decisions,” said Gilang Widya Wisaksana, Esri Indonesia’s Head of Sales.
