2014 Best of New York City Awards Announced

2014 Best of New York City Awards announced on November 13, 2014 that the award for Best Internal Application was awarded to the Department of Sanitation for their BladeRunner program.

Critigen is proud to be part of this team of professionals and to share in the celebration of being recognized for producing one of the best applications of the year by e.Republic.

The City of New York Department of Sanitation’s (DSNY) BladeRunner system is a highly customized fleet tracking application that utilizes dedicated in-vehicle Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology to collect and transmit vehicle location and movement information in real time for over 3000 vehicles. DSNY field officers use the application to improve their ability to oversee and coordinate the activities of trucks they are supervising during regular operations and snow emergencies. The system significantly enhances the overall management and effectiveness of DSNY’s fleet during normal and emergency operations. Using Esri mapping technology along with a suite of tools employing both Oracle and SQL databases to gather GPS and related information to deliver a JavaScript app that can be used by laptops or smartphones in the field, BladeRunner enables DSNY field officers to quickly select the specific trucks they have been assigned to supervise and provides a variety of ways to locate a vehicle, to identify the vehicles current assignment, to receive alerts that a truck has been stopped in excess of a set time and that trucks have entered a DSNY facility or a dump site.
