A Traditional City with Modern Challenges

North Tonawanda, a historic city with a rich industrial past, has faced the challenge of maintaining its aging infrastructure while striving to provide modern services to its residents. Before implementing vialytics, the city’s road management relied on manual methods, with employees physically driving the roads, manually measuring, and taking notes on paper for planning. This time-consuming and inefficient process made it difficult to track and respond to incoming complaints effectively.

 North Tonawanda's departments have embraced the vialytics system, with the sewer department, streets department, engineering department, and dispatcher all utilizing the system for tasks ranging from asset management to planning paving projects and tracking work progress. The system's ease of use has allowed the city to send employees out with minimal direction, leading to a more efficient workflow. A city representative remarks, "It is remarkably easy to use, we send guys out with little direction, and get accurate data back ASAP. It's been incredibly helpful.”

Measurable Improvements and Future Opportunities

North Tonawanda has experienced tangible benefits from using vialytics. The city has reported significant time savings in planning paving projects, reducing the time required for measuring and planning from multiple days to just a few minutes. “It used to take us a few days to drive a couple of roads for pavement planning. Yesterday, with vialytics, it took us 5 minutes!” adds a city rep. This has led to increased efficiency and cost savings for the municipality. The ability to see an up-to-date image view of the streets has also lead to time savings from taking trips into the field and cross-departmental synergies in the city. Knowing when repairs are completed and responding to citizen requests has also improved significantly.
