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.

BlueDAG LLC Releases Title II Suite For Grievance Management and Transition Plans

BlueDAG LLC is pleased to announce that its Title II Suite for the BlueDAG ADA assessment and compliance system is now available. BlueDAG’s Title II Suite has been designed as an end-to-end complete solution for any small or large public agency looking to meet their ADA compliance needs, and can also be utilized by consulting firms providing service to those entities.

The Title II suite includes an integrated set of tools for Grievance Management, Notices, Projects, Self-evaluations and Transition Plans. With BlueDAG’s Title II suite, all aspects of compliance are under entity control, with dashboard-style views that make managing workflow a breeze.

BlueDAG’s revolutionary Grievance Tracking module will navigate you through your workflow, with the ability to catalogue all access requests, verify jurisdiction, evaluate the sites, propose a resolution and manage a remediation project. Workflows and milestones can be tailored to your entity’s unique requirements if needed. Integrated logging and record retention, along with the ability to tie other activities to a grievance, enables entities to easily find and manage everything in one place. Storage of related collateral, report generation and geolocation are all standard features. Importing of legacy Grievance data and integration with external systems are among the optional features that are available upon request.

BlueDAG’s Transition Plan builder provides ample standardized text along with dynamically generated content, so that entities can manage Transition Plans and keep a history of changes. Assets lists can be automatically generated from existing evaluations, and public comments can be incorporated into the Plan with the integrated PDF uploader. Entities can even post a ‘living’ transition plan by placing BlueDAG’s public barrier web link on their website: updates happen in real time as barriers are discovered and re-mediated.

Document your remediation Projects and tie them to applicable Grievances and Evaluations with BlueDAG’s Projects Manager. Set a Project Scope and Budget, record budgetary line items, and tie to Grievance and Evaluation workflows to keep all of your departments up to date on progress. Track and archive your public Notices and Self‐evaluations with the BlueDAG modules for those functions, effortlessly keeping track of all of your progress and information posted.

BlueDAG to be exhibitor at the ADA Symposium in Colorado

 

Team BlueDAG will be at the National ADA Symposium on June 18-22 in Denver, Colorado.  This is the largest ADA focused event in the United States and we are excited to have a table to show off our accessibility tool to all of the attendees.

From the website:

“The National ADA Symposium is a project of the ADA National Network which is comprised of ten regional centers that provide information, training, and materials on the Americans with Disabilities Act. The conference, held annually for the past 20 years, has earned the reputation as the most comprehensive training event available on the ADA and disability related laws. The 2016 National ADA Symposium will be co-hosted by the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain ADA Centers.

The National ADA Symposium is designed to provide the latest information on ADA regulations and guidelines, implementation strategies, and best practices through dynamic, interactive sessions.

Our goal is to make sure participants get useful information that is applicable to their work and daily lives. Over 95% of prior Symposium attendees surveyed reported they learned something that they could use on the job and in their communities.”
