APTA’s annual expo brought together an impressive collection of American and international exhibitors this year. All the largest and most innovative mass transit service providers fit into Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center during October 9-11, 2017. We had the pleasure of meeting so many interesting exhibitors and government employees that work for/with mass transit authorities. And while the event is over, our team is still discussing the experience, and all that we accomplished during our successful show at the expo.
Opening remarks by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and others were inspiring. You can’t image the excitement we felt hearing about how our hometown, Atlanta, is leading the nation’s efforts towards transformational change with projects such as the proposed expansion of MARTA and Atlanta Streetcar. ThingTech was founded with the purpose of providing game-changing software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to transit agencies with assets of all classes. With our combined years of experience, no other company is better positioned to deliver a transit asset management (TAM) that removes the pain of manually managing assets and meeting compliance with federal regulations.
In the New Era of FAST ( Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act), ThingTech has helped government entities like the City of Burleson, TX and State of Delaware implement real-time solutions powered by the Internet of Things (IoT). We’ve helped many transit authorities reach new levels of operational excellence with our TAM solution. This cloud-based service consolidates all data about your assets – vehicles, equipment, facilities, and infrastructure – into an easy-to-use, web-based solution that is accessible from anywhere and easy to stand up in a few short weeks. We’re enabling transit agencies to simplify compliance with the FTA’s Final Rule on Transit Asset Management, and by leveraging the IoT, providing the capability to better manage their “things”, automate and streamline maintenance schedules, and keep assets in a state of good repair (SGR).
