ITS America Webinar Series to Focus on Off-the-Shelf Road Incident Management
The ITS America Webinar Series provides their members an opportunity to learn about developments in the ITS Industry and connect with other members on a wide range of topics.  At 2pm Eastern US time on June 11, 2015 the topic will be Off-the-Shelf Road Incident Management (RIM), presented by GEWI, who recently implemented the first phase of this system for a European Customer.
The session will focus on the advantages of a system which can be customized to each organization’s specific response plan, based on the type of incident.  Beyond accidents, the RIM system enables organizations to handle traffic infrastructure events as projects, managed by a team or teams, to engage the appropriate resources for response, provide ATIS as required, and keep all stakeholders informed through every step of the process.
