Iteris Presents “ClearPath Weather®: The Leading MDSS for Managing Severe Weather Events” Webinar on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at 11 a.m. EST

Iteris' industry leading winter maintenance decision support system (MDSS), ClearPath Weather®, can help maintenance managers properly prepare and manage for severe weather events, including wind, snow, sleet and ice.  Our solution helps you isolate when and where snow or ice buildup will occur on a route, when to pre-treat, patrol, plow, and apply chemical with pinpoint accuracy.    

Join us for a webinar next Wednesday, January 14 at 11 a.m. EST featuring Leah Dailey, Weather Operations and Sales Specialist at Iteris, who will discuss Iteris' ClearPath Weather features, functionality and benefits, and Michael Williams, Snow & Ice Program Coordinator of Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), who will talk about his personal experience using and leveraging the Iteris MDSS solution.
