Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties, Maryland, United States
The Intercounty Connector is an 18.8-mile, limited-access, six-lane, tolled
highway connecting existing and proposed development areas within central
and eastern Montgomery and northwestern Prince George’s Counties in
Maryland. The project team for this $2.5 billion project was comprised of five
government agencies and the 40-firm Intercounty Connector partners.
A system was required to allow the design-build participants to submit
electronically all design and construction documents for collaborative review.
The project team deployed Project Wise as the document handling and
storage software to allow for efficient document distribution. The speed and
efficiency gained by this system helped maximize the productivity of the various
engineering discipline review teams and allowed for a more timely response to
the design-build contractors.
The business objective for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT)
was to reduce paper processes, increase efficiencies, and add accountability
to project teams. With 1.4 million documents, 320,000 folders, 186 document
states, and 38 workflows, MDOT decided to run on Project Wise. MDOT
extended its use of Project Wise outside of the CAD environment to save money
and improve processes.

Project Wise has allowed MDOT to develop low-cost IT solutions that would
have previously been solved with custom-built software at a higher price. The
workflows in place are saving an estimated $3 million per year in reduced
travel, printing, scanning, mailing costs, and hands-on time. The audit trails
have made staff accountable for tasks and provided the means to produce
automated corporate measurements of critical processes.
