Delivers accurate element-level inspection data enabling data-driven decision making

EXTON, Pa., U.S.A. – Sept. 15, 2016 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider

of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced that all 15

state DOTs and agencies using AssetWise InspectTech achieved compliance with annual Federal

Highway Administration (FHWA) MAP-21 National Bridge Inventory (NBI) and National

Bridge Element (NBE) reporting requirements and successfully submitted reports on time.

AssetWise InspectTech delivers accurate element-level inspection data required by MAP-21

enabling data-driven decision making. Faced with aging bridge infrastructure nationwide,

FHWA’s MAP-21 performance-based program is designed to maximize return on investment in

transportation infrastructure, ensure public safety and infrastructure reliability, and reduce

project delivery delays.

Michael F. Premo, P.E., NDOT Structures Division – Bridge Inspection, said, “The ability of

AssetWise InspectTech to support our Nevada-specific inspection needs and meet the FHWA,

MAP-21, and NBI regulatory requirement deadlines is a testament to its flexibility. It allows our

inspectors to accurately and efficiently collect, manage, and submit all required data including

mobile data from the field in the required format. Using InspectTech our NBI submittal went

smoothly again this year.”

AssetWise InspectTech provides performance metric reports and dashboards based on industry

best practices for NBI and NBE submission, performs error checks and automated sufficiency

rating calculations that prevent errors during the data collection process, and, through timely

reporting, gives citizens peace of mind that states are fully ensuring their transportation safety.

Its extensive configuration tools allow state agencies to tailor the application to meet their

respective needs while still supporting all required federal reports.

Taylor Gilmore, product manager, AssetWise InspectTech, said, “The element-level inspection

enabled by AssetWise InspectTech increases the granularity of the analytical capabilities for the

inspection and evaluation of bridges – better predicting their performance, enhancing public

safety, and advancing the timely delivery of bridge maintenance and repair projects. AssetWise

InspectTech was used to inspect over 175,000 bridges for our users’ 2016 Federal Highway NBI

and NBE data reports.”
