New $1.4m deal extends 1Spatial’s California gold rush

Cambridge location technology company 1Spatial is accelerating its importance in the US safe transport market after securing another big money deal with the State of California.

The AIM-quoted business is helping to underpin the efficiency of transport systems in ‘The Golden State’ in a deal designed to prompt further efficiencies in multi modes of transport and ultimately save lives.

1Spatial emerged victorious from a competitive tender to clinch a $1.4 million data management contract over four years, including $0.7m in software licence revenue. 

The deal supports the replacement of the Transportation System Network (TSN) for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). 

1Spatial says the contract has been secured in partnership with Rizing, a global SAP partner headquartered in Stamford, CT.

The State of California is an existing client, having already chosen 1Spatial’s Next Generation 911 solution.

Caltrans manages California's highway and freeway lanes, provides inter-city rail services, and permits more than 400 public-use airports and heliports. Caltrans inspects and maintains bridge structures and works with local agencies to address highway congestion and incidents and collaborate on new modes of transportation and highway management systems.

Safety is top priority and ‘Toward Zero Death’  is one of the department’s main goals. As part of this, Caltrans is upgrading its TSN to meet the requirements of the MAP-21 transportation legislation and the subsequent Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act – both of which emphasise the importance of more advanced data systems for all public roads.

They require that all States have a safety data system in place that can perform enhanced analysis and be able to identify fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads by location, as well as have the capability to link collision, roadway and traffic data by geolocation. 

1Spatial’s 1Integrate Rules Engine and 1Data Gateway Portal will be used to validate, clean, and synchronise all the existing data within the safety data system to create a modern TSN, able to meet these requirements on an ongoing basis.

1Spatial CEO, Claire Milverton, said: “This is a fantastic win and offers further validation of our expanding presence in the US, as we partner with the State of California for a second time. 

“We believe this win provides considerable growth opportunity for us, creating a new set of rules and data management offering which will be replicable across all US States.

“We look forward to utilising our unique technology and solutions to install and optimise the upgrade of the Transformation System Network, helping the state to increase safety and save lives.”
