Asset management systems run on good data, and the availability of accurate data is critical to the success of an asset management program. Data collection is also one of the largest costs of managing an asset management system. Luckily, the Roadsoft Laptop Data Collector (LDC) combined with the Roadsoft desktop application, can ease the burden and expense of data collection.
The LDC is a portable data collection application designed specifically for collecting roadway asset data from the passenger seat of a moving vehicle. Compatible with most laptops and tablets running Windows, the LDC installation loads the appropriate map and data files from Roadsoft. After attaching a low-cost GPS to the laptop, or using a built-in GPS with a tablet PC, collecting asset data becomes time and cost efficient. Whether our customers are collecting pavement, sign, culvert, or other asset information, the LDC is efficient, convenient, and proven.
