SANTA ANA, Calif. – November 7, 2019 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that five departments of transportation (DOT) have extended their contracts to continue Iteris’ service of their 511 traveler information systems. Georgia DOT, Montana DOT, Kansas DOT, West Virginia DOT and the Riverside County Transportation Commission have renewed Iteris’ 511 services in contracts totaling more than $1.5 million.
The awards strengthen Iteris’ position as a nationwide leader in 511 traveler information systems, with implementations of 11 statewide and regional systems across the U.S., supporting over 60 million combined interactions and 7.9 million individual Interactive Voice Response (IVR) phone calls in the past year alone.
Under the terms of the agreements, Iteris will upgrade, operate and maintain all five systems, which provide traffic, road and weather conditions, as well as upgrade Georgia DOT and Montana DOT’s enhanced, state-of-the-art suite of mobile apps. A partial listing of new features and enhancements to the Georgia DOT and Montana DOT systems will include: situational events, whereby a snapshot from a nearby camera is now included to provide users with a complete view; as well as weather integration, favorites and best available route support features. Georgia DOT’s mobile apps will also feature Waze crowdsourcing, whereby users will be able to view Waze events and switch seamlessly between the Waze and 511 apps. While the Montana DOT’s new mobile apps will support a look-ahead feature that notifies users of upcoming incidents or construction along their route. Additionally, Iteris’ roadway management system will allow Montana DOT to manage and monitor traffic and route conditions, events, construction and assets from within their facilities and in the field.
“Iteris is proud to have been the trusted provider of 11 traveler information systems nationwide, and we are excited to extend and expand that role with these five highly visible customer renewals,” said Moe Zarean, vice president and assistant general manager at Iteris. “We are committed to continuing to deliver the highest level of service to our state and county 511 systems and their citizens, while providing unparalleled solutions configured to each agency’s unique needs.”
