| Blog | Plow Ops | Join NeoTreks at the 2017 APWA Snow Conference


We’re proud to announce that NeoTreks has been selected to present “Utilizing Mobile Apps for Weather Responsive Traffic” as part of the FAST TRACK education sessions at the 2017 APWA Snow Conference in Des Moines, Iowa. The session takes place Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at 1PM in room 316-317.

The 2017 APWA Snow Conference has it all—from expert-led snow and ice education sessions to an exhibit floor full of experts who can't wait to show you the latest winter maintenance solutions your community's been looking for.

Join Josh Parker, Vice President of Product Development at NeoTreks, as he examines how the GIS-IT team at Wyoming DOT worked with NeoTreks and CompassCom to design, develop and deploy an Android tablet application for use with the 600+ plows operating within Wyoming.

The Wyoming DOT Road Condition Reporting Application was designed to improve the frequency, accuracy and timeliness of observational weather data from the plow operators themselves.

Learn how the Wyoming Road Condition Reporting Application helped improve:

  • The efficiency of road condition reporting by maintenance staff
  • Response times when reporting road conditions from Transportation Management Center operations
  • The timeliness of updated traveler information
  • The situational awareness of maintenance staff in the field regarding road weather conditions

After attending this session, you’ll be better able to transfer your workflows from verbal to digital, update the public in real time, and reduce the length of road closures to aid commercial trucking and the motoring public. Come hear how the project turned out and see if your agency could benefit from something similar.

We’ll also have a booth where we’ll be demoing our latest version of NeoTreks Plow Ops and sharing best practices to help professionals like you improve safety and efficiency during winter operations.

And, oh yeah, we’ll be giving away a Yeti cooler! On the NeoTreks team, we’re outdoorsmen at heart. And we can’t get enough of these coolers that are built for finding comfort well outside your comfort zone.

Check us out at Booth #307 and win!
