Georgia Department of Transportation Chooses Altiva Software's CADconform
February 8, 2013 (Houston, TX) — Altiva Software announces that Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has chosen CADconform® software to promote and enforce its CAD data standards.
After a thorough evaluation, GDOT chose CADconform because of its functionality in the followings areas:
Only software of its kind that supports MicroStation J through V8i
Speed and ease of installation and configuration including vast database support of SQL
Flexibility and power to handle multiple standards easily
Minimal training requirement for drafters
Automated enforcement of standards with its unique tamper-proof seal that immediately confirms compliance
"GDOT CAD support specialists have developed vast drafting menus and several macros to speed up repetitive tasks; thus we have been evaluating exactly how we want to implement the CADconform software. CADconform provides a nice supplemental QA graphical check for our designers and that is how we will be implementing it," explained Glenn D. Williams, Engineering Support & Services Manager, Office of Design Policy & Support for Georgia Department of Transportation. Verifying that CAD standards are being followed was the one tool lacking for every drafter and with CADconform integrated into the workspace, drafters will be responsible to check and fix their own work for compliance.
