Econolite Introduces Centracs® MMS

A real-time automated field asset and management system developed specifically for the ITS industry

Anaheim, Calif., July 17, 2013 – Econolite today introduced a real-time Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)-specific field asset and maintenance management system – Centracs MMS. A critical component to the effectiveness of any ITS program is the proactive management of field assets, technician service calls, preventative maintenance and performance measures, to properly sustain transportation and traffic signal operations.

With more than a decade of contract ITS maintenance and management services for Departments of Transportation (DOTs), cities, and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), Econolite developed Centracs MMS from a proven and working software toolset. “A centralized system that can proactively manage the maintenance and field assets can help traffic departments and MPOs save time and money, while enhancing productivity,” said Aegis ITS Senior Vice President Rodney Mathis. “Centracs MMS is designed to manage the ITS infrastructure to ensure the real time network monitoring, preventative maintenance, automated updates/warning and reporting capabilities that other, more complex inventory control-only systems just can’t provide.”

Centracs MMS is a simple-to-use Geographic Information System (GIS)-based proactive ITS asset management and maintenance management tool. It enables DOTs, MPOs, and signal maintenance organizations to track assets in real-time and through the entire life cycle. Offering both workstation and mobile device interfaces, it supports preventative maintenance planning and execution along with trouble ticket dispatch and work-order scheduling. Centracs MMS is available as an optional module to Centracs, or as a stand-alone product.
