Program is modernizing how agencies approach inspections with new digital RPA platform

ARInspect, the developer of the industry's most powerful digitally-enabled inspections robotic process automation (RPA) application, announced today that New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), a customer of the company, was honored as a StateScoop 50 award winner in two categories. The State of New Jersey’s Smart Inspection initiative was named a “State IT Innovation of the Year” and Pete Tenebruso, CIO for DEP was named a “State Leadership of the Year” winner.

The 2019 StateScoop 50 Awards honor the projects and leaders driving innovation within state government technology and cybersecurity. Thousands of projects and leaders were nominated and that list was narrowed to 180 finalists who were listed on the StateScoop website for a reader vote. The top vote-getters in each of the six categories made the final list of winners.

Government inspectors are critical to enforcing regulations that protect our air, water, land, food and more. But, DEP is limited to one inspector for every 2,750 regulated sites, requiring additional efficiencies to ensure that the department is effectively protecting the environment and public health.

The Smart Inspection Initiative, led by Pete Tenebruso, is retooling the way agencies approach inspections using RPA and predictive algorithms in a mobile platform to feed inspectors prioritized schedules by identifying regulated sites with the highest risk for regulatory non-compliance. For the first time, inspectors are armed with tablet-based inspection applications for data collection and other digital tools. Enforcement leaders have immediate access to data-visualization tools to support operational decision making, keeping communities safer and business operating.

“With this Smart Inspection initiative, Pete has become an innovation champion not just for DEP, but for the state as a whole,” said Vivek Mehta, CEO of ARInspect. “We are incredibly proud to support his fast and effective transformation of the DEP inspection process and are inspired by the DEP team’s efforts to achieve modernization goals to keep their communities safer!”
