CDOT SEES SUCCESS WITH ASPENROOT DEVELOPMENT


The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) recently selected AspenRoot, L.L.C. to develop a facilities database that they could use to manage and acquire much needed funding for improvements. In six months, AspenRoot created the entire "Real Estate Management System (REMS)"-a zero-footprint distributed application hosted on the CDOT intranet that enables management and staff to view, analyze and update detailed information on all of CDOT's facilities.


"We now have a distributed application that allows changes to be made on location, as opposed to a slow paper trail," Mike Anders, statewide property management program manager, said. "The data we now have access to drives both the budget and the decision process for every type of property CDOT owns."


Sandy Gallagher, CDOT headquarters facilities manager, said, "Usability has helped make this application strategically important to us in gaining the attention at the highest levels of CDOT to justify our capital-expenditure requests. With REMS, we've been able to justify that funding and get the attention this issue deserves."


Aspenroot L.L.C., a Macromedia Alliance Partner, developed the custom solution using Macromedia's suite of products. "Aspenroot showed us they could build something quickly and for less money, that would give us the same if not better value and credibility", said Gallagher.


Adam Rowe, project manager for AspenRoot said, "We can create enterprise applications quickly. The fact that we were able to prototype a solution for CDOT in six weeks was key to winning their support and strengthening our relationship."
