Bloomington, IL Sign Inventory via Bicycle

Cloudpoint staff is currently undertaking a very large sign inventory for the City of Bloomington, IL.  The city has over 20,000 signs and over 300 miles of roadway, which is the biggest SignOps project that we've undertaken so far.  With so many signs to inventory and such a large area to cover, we started to brainstorm ideas that could lead to higher productivity.  The solution that we came up with: Bicycles. 

 Here you can see Joe using his bicycle mounted iPad to inventory one of the thousands of signs within Bloomington's jurisdiction.  The bike mounts are a great addition for this type of inventory work.

The bicycles are proving to work great!  Staff can park in a central location and the 2 or 3 members of the field crew can break off to cover different areas all at once.  This allows us to cover large swaths of land faster than ever before! We have only been at this for a few weeks and we can already tell how beneficial using the bikes has been for the project. By using iPads mounted directly to the handlebars, we can further utilize SignOps' mobile capabilities.

Remember with SignOps, There's Only One Way!
