Professional Team

Our combined IMS/ICC team is comprised of 90 employees, including 10 engineers of whom six have earned PhDs, eight independently certified pavement raters, and 18 data and GIS technicians focused exclusively on pavement and ROW asset management. The IMS technical team completes more than 100 pavement and asset management projects annually and stands second to none in their ability to establish cost effective maintenance management programs for large and small agencies alike. Over nearly four decades, they have earned a reputation for excellence while delivering thousands of projects to municipal clients across the United States and Canada. To date, IMS has completed projects for over 600 city and county agencies, 22 large-scale public works departments, and nine state agencies and transportation authorities. The team has supplied data for more than 15 different software platforms, ranging from their proprietary systems to 3rd party programs like Lucity, Deighton’s dTIMS, Hansen’s Street Module, Caregraph, MTC’s StreetSaver, PAVER, and StreetLogix.
