Modis team amplifies Virginia Department of Transportation’s VOIS

Client Overview: Commonwealth of Virginia

The Virginia Department of Transportation was locked in to a proprietary software package that could not communicate real-time information. Changes to the software were slow and costly. The system was not user-friendly, therefore, department personnel used the system minimally. The department wanted to add functionality, maintain the system in-house and own the product.

Modis developed a Web-based, ASP, SQL Server back-end application called VOIS (Virginia Operational Information System). The application features GIS mapping which allows pan and zoom features as well as plotting of icons on the maps. External agencies such as Virginia State Police and department users can access the VOIS system with a secure logon through the Internet. Other technologies used on the project include Visual Basic, XML, Web Services, Active X, Map Objects, ArcIMS, COM/DCOM, Collaborative Data Objects, MS Exchange Server, and Windows operating systems.

The department can now communicate road condition information to its personnel and to the general public. The system is easy to maintain, user-friendly, reports up-to-date real-time information at a nominal cost to the department. Modis has an excellent reputation with the department as well as other Commonwealth agencies, working to understand their needs and providing top notch consultants and service.

Modis has provided IT resources services for numerous agencies including the Department of Social Services, Department of Health, Department of Taxation, Department of Transportation, Department of Information Technology, Department of Game & Inland Fisheries, Department of Rehabilitative Services, Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, Virginia Compensation Board, Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Aviation, Department for the Aging, and the Board of Elections.
