History

ETC was founded by Tim Gallagher in 1999. In 2007 and 2012, Atlantia S.p.A., invested in a majority share in the company, which enabled ETC to pursue a wider range of market opportunities.

ETC is one of a select few platform and systems integrators that offer end-to-end solutions, from roadside systems to the back office and operations. This allows ETC to have a full understanding of the upstream or downstream ramifications of each type of program. Following the most recent market trend to have separate tenders for Roadside and Back Office programs, ETC has recently adapted its organizational structure along these two lines of business in order to foster specialization, accountability, and dedication to the client to benefit the execution of these programs.

Celebrating our 20-year anniversary in 2019, ETC’s history has been marked by numerous industry innovations including the first web-based solution, the first Service Oriented Architecture in the toll industry, the first all-electronic toll road implementation in the U.S., and the first truly predictive dynamic pricing algorithm in the industry.

ETC has a wide range of customers that include some of the largest toll agencies in the U.S. Our systems range from small hosted solutions to large, technically sophisticated delivered systems that provide complete end-to-end solutions.

By leveraging ETC’s RITE™ technology, our team delivers industry-leading roadside and back office solutions, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), systems integration, maintenance, and operations to some of the largest tolling authorities in the U.S.

ETC deploys back office projects either on-premise or as SaaS, hosted at our data center located in Richardson, Texas.
