gNext Signs Teaming Agreement with Michael Baker International

As part of a new teaming agreement, gNext will provide its digital inspection platform with 2D and 3D models, reporting, secure storage, collaboration, and more to Michael Baker International’s newly created data dashboards to better manage infrastructure assets owned by the state departments of transportation in the US.

The announcement of the teaming agreement between gNext and Michael Baker International follows a thorough and successful validation process to ensure the gNext platform provides the detailed analysis, visualization, and reporting capabilities required to meet the needs of Michael Baker International’s state department of transportation clients.

Michael Baker International will assist clients in their inspection process by creating personalized analytics dashboards to manage each state’s infrastructure assets.

“gNext’s technology will allow the integration of an infrastructure-focused visual intelligence platform into Michael Baker’s dashboards to assist in making confident decisions,” said Russ Ellis, gNext President. “We’re thrilled to work with Michael Baker International to provide our digital inspection platform to assist state DOTs in achieving safer and more efficient inspections.”
