CalAmp has secured a statewide contract with the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA), the company announced.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) signed a 10-year contract to leverage CalAmp’s iOn fleet software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology to manage fleet vehicles and snowplow assets, encompassing approximately 12,000 vehicles statewide.
“VDOT is one of the nation’s leading transportation agencies and values innovation, efficiencies and – above all – safety in our service to the 8.5 million citizens of Virginia,” said Rob Cary, chief deputy commissioner at VDOT. “Leveraging a connected fleet that we can track in real time will support our mission to address the transportation and safety needs of our citizens during winter weather events.”
CalAmp iOn fleet-management service helps governments manage their resources and increase fleet accountability, efficiency and asset reliability, according to the company.
“We’re excited to be working with VDOT and VITA to improve the winter weather services that so many Virginians depend on every winter,” said Carl Burrow, SVP of global sales at CalAmp. “With our SaaS solutions, citizens will have peace of mind knowing that Virginia snow-removal efforts will be supported by technology and analytics to help keep their roads open and safe during the winter months. Our technology will help VDOT provide superior quality of service when the next snowstorm hits.”
