Highway maintenance company, Colas, has deployed Esri’s ArcGIS Online to help deliver versatile and mobile GIS capabilities to its field-based personnel. This web-based solution is enabling employees to work more efficiently and make better informed decisions when assessing road damage caused by vehicle accidents.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • Employees can view and edit live map data from any location, on iPads and smartphones, without needing to manually update data on their return to the office.


  • ArcGIS Online has minimised the need for paper maps and is helping employees to collaborate and share business data more effectively. 



  • Colas benefits from ArcGIS Online’s ease of use and estimates that it can now develop new apps for mobile devices in as little as an hour.


"ArcGIS Online is simple to use as the integration with ArcGIS for Server is completely automated. We can view and edit live map data in the field, on iPads or smartphones and don’t need to manually update data when staff return to base."

David Piesse, GIS Technician
