Business Problem Solved

Zayo was utilizing KMZs and Excel spreadsheets with macros to track Large Projects. The details of the project (dates, footages, build status, etc.) were completely separated from the spatial features. We wanted to enable the spatial data, allow querying of the data, visualize projects across the country, enable field collection efforts, and create/update data in Salesforce. With the use of Esri technology, we were able to provide the Project info on the spatial features which allowed for analysis we had never previously been able to do. By creating a customized editing environment utilizing ArcGIS Workflow Manager, Task Assistant, and Attribute Assistant, we were able to quickly train non-GIS professionals. This data was then able to be published so we could provide a web application for viewers to see project status and even provide a Collector map so our users could collect data in the field and tie pictures and documents to the locations.

Technology Implemented

Utilized ArcMap, Workflow Manager, Data Interoperability, Task Assistant, and Attribute Assistant to set up desktop editing environment.
Utilized ArcGIS for Server to publish maps for use with Collector. Collector was then used to collect features and pictures in the field that were construction related.
Utilized ArcGIS for Server, ArcGIS Online, and Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS to provide applications for viewing Project Progress.
Utilized ArcGIS for Server, ArcGIS Online, and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS to create dashboard for quick viewing of Project Statistics.
