Richardson, Texas – This week, ETC successfully went live with its upgraded riteSuite™ systems at the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA), in Atlanta, Georgia, despite the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19.
Remarkably, in order to ensure the safety of all the involved ETC and SRTA personnel from potential COVID-19 exposure, the ETC team accomplished this go-live fully remotely. This is the first full cloud deployment of ETC’s next-gen riteSuite™, built using a highly scalable and flexible micro-services architecture. Its successful deployment, amid widespread delays and shutdowns nationwide, was possible because riteSuite™ is also designed to maximize remote capabilities and minimize intrusion and disruption to customers’ systems during implementation and beyond.
ETC’s riteSuite™ is an updated family of end-to-end tolling and mobility systems, built on predominant open-source platforms for flexible deployment and future-proofing, comprising a variety of new tolling and multimodal products, including:
“The coronavirus outbreak has forced many organizations to amend their original plans and strategies and develop creative solutions to keep business running as usual. We’re very glad that ETC is able to deploy these products remotely to complete the system upgrade as planned,” said SRTA’s Executive Director Chris Tomlinson.
Throughout this remote go-live deployment, the ETC team used previously implemented corporate telework tools to communicate between the ETC and SRTA project team members.
“We are very proud of our SRTA project team’s handling of this unique situation,” said ETC’s Chief Executive Officer Bret Kidd. “They have been working relentlessly to deploy these riteSuite™ products at SRTA, despite the unprecedented challenges triggered by the coronavirus epidemic. It is also worth noting that some of these next-gen products were being deployed for the very first time!”
