Numetric’s New Network Screening Application Surpasses Federal Safety Requirements, Empowering States to Prevent Roadway Deaths

January 10, 2019

SILICON SLOPES, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 10, 2019--Numetric, the Traffic Safety Analytics Solution Provider, announced the launch of its new Network Screening application to empower states to meet and even exceed federal requirements and identify their most dangerous roadways.

Due to a current lack of sufficient tools, the process of manually ranking roadways takes weeks or even months for most states. This makes effective networking screening infeasible for groups at regional, county, and city levels, preventing them from making the most informed resource investments to reduce crashes. Numetric’s Network Screening application promises to eliminate this problem by enabling state and local agencies to rank their roadways in minutes by the attributes that matter most to them, and pinpoint the most effective ways to reduce traffic deaths on those roadways.

“Reducing roadway fatality rates depends on better tools that produce more useful insights and empowers more informed decisions in how we spend precious resources to save as many lives as possible on our roads,” said Nate Bower, CEO of Numetric. “The release of our new Network Screening solution makes it clear that a data-science, automation-driven approach is the way forward. This new tool—and many more to come—promise to unlock states’ traffic safety data and empower them to more quickly identify areas that could receive the greatest benefit from improvement.”

Numetric’s unique analytics platform makes it possible for users to filter through millions of pieces of data with unparalleled flexibility and speed. For example, in the Network Screening application, users can see in seconds the most crash-prone roadways in a specific county during a specific month where teens and alcohol were involved. A standard federally-required network screening report can be produced in just seconds, instead of months.

This launch continues a trend of new product releases from Numetric demonstrating the company’s commitment to unlocking traffic safety agencies’ data to allow them to more effectively convert safety funds into saved lives. The company plans to release additional applications, including tools for Safety Analysis, Project Design, and Automated FHWA HSIP Reporting, throughout 2019.
