City of Oakland Licenses BlueDAG for Title II Initiatives
June 7th, 2017 – The City of Oakland’s ADA Programs Division has secured a multi-year license of BlueDAG LLC’s Title II software suite, and will soon begin a comprehensive assessment and remediation initiative against their public buildings and right-of-ways.
BlueDAG Project Manager Josh Hovinga, Title II SME Lisa Denham, and additional key BlueDAG staff hammered out the details of the BlueDAG implementation plan with Oakland’s division manager Christine Calabrese and ADA Programmatic Access Coordinator Sherri Rita. Initial steps will include deploying a private cloud-based instance of the BlueDAG system exclusively for Oakland’s use, and populating the system with Oakland’s legacy access data, comprising over 250,000 data points which will be imported from their legacy system by BlueDAG engineers. The BlueDAG instance will also be integrated with Oakland’s GIS system, so that assets can be coordinated between the two systems for tracking and auditing of discovery and assessment tasks. The implementation agreement includes provisions for BlueDAG engineers and specialists to onboard and train Oakland staff in the use of the system, so that Oakland may develop its data set to align with project goals.
BlueDAG’s game-changing ADA assessment and compliance platform is a cloud-based system that streamlines the performance of checklist-based inspections for both existing and planned facilities. BlueDAG places 50+ years of barrier standards at the user’s fingertips, making the capture of barrier findings easier than ever before. A mobile version of the system allows on-site recording of findings, including photographs taken on the fly. No mobile data connection is required.
BlueDAG’s site inspection tools are integral to the Title II suite, which system tracks and manages grievances, notices, evaluations, remediation projects and transition plans, all in the same familiar BlueDAG interface. Calendars, tasks lists and reminders make it easy to manage every case; Self-Evaluations facilitate auditing and control.
BlueDAG is pleased to be working with the City of Oakland on this project. The City’s commitment to BlueDAG’s Title II compliance solution is a testament to the power and scope of the BlueDAG system, and the City expects that BlueDAG will greatly augment its ADA compliance initiatives for years to come.
