Kane County Division of Transportation in Illinois awards ETC a contract to deliver and operate its next-generation back office system, including ETC’s advanced riteHorizon™, riteOnline™, riteOSS™ software, and customer service center operations, for the Longmeadow Parkway Toll Bridge.

Richardson, Texas – On November 10, 2020, Kane County Division of Transportation (KDOT) in Illinois signed a contract with Electronic Transaction Consultants (ETC) to deliver a state-of-the-art back office system and advanced customer service center operations. ETC will deliver a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)-based Back Office system and operations program, scalable to exceed KDOT’s anticipated production volumes.

This contract, which includes a six-year initial term with two two-year period renewal options, launched in November 2020. ETC’s winning solution includes:

  • riteHorizon™ back office system
  • riteOnline™ customer self-service system
  • riteOSS™ system monitoring and operational reporting
  • Customer service center operations with unified communication systems

ETC’s riteHorizon™, combined with riteOnline™, is a cloud-based, production-proven, unified suite of tolling-specific modules, integrated with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications. ETC’s technology forward approach will provide complete account management, customer self-service, and automated operations of KDOT’s tolling back-office. Unlike traditional toll systems, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and customer relationship management (CRM) systems, riteHorizon™ offers a unified platform, based on a single data model, that integrates accounting, audit and data transparency with toll process business management, and holistic, user-intuitive customer relationship management.

“ETC’s solution will provide Kane County with a state-of-the-art back office system and intuitive interfaces, making the call center and online self-service interface easily accessible for our future customers,” said Steve Coffinbargar, KDOT’s Assistant Director of Transportation. “We are excited to work with ETC to implement this production-proven back office system that will allow us to provide a high level of customer service for our Longmeadow Parkway toll bridge users.”

ETC’s riteSuite™ is a family of end-to-end tolling and mobility systems, built on mainstream open-source platforms for future-proof, flexible deployments. riteSuite comprises a variety of new tolling and multimodal products, including:

  • riteHorizon – A comprehensive, production-proven low/no-code software platform comprised of a stable ERP, CRM, and other back office modules, designed for tolling and multi-service mobility applications, and armed with ERP-level reporting for unmatched insight and auditability.
  • riteOnline – A customer self-service website and mobile application that offers an enhanced user experience for easy account maintenance and navigation where customers can conduct account maintenance, manage vehicles or transponders, view account history, chat with an agent, and more.
  • riteOSS – An enterprise-level IT maintenance and asset management system that provides complete system infrastructure mapping, with service and component-level monitoring, interactive dashboards, configurable alerts, predictive lane analysis, and comprehensive asset lifecycle management.

“We are honored to begin working with KDOT on the Longmeadow Parkway project. A similar system to what we will be implementing at the Kane County Division of Transportation has already been in production for over two years and we’re excited to implement this advanced and one-of-a-kind back office solution with another team,” said ETC CEO Bret Kidd.
