Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) was awarded Best Maximo Implementation at the 2023 MaximoWorld Conference in Phoenix, AZ, for their work with Interloc Solutions, Inc. (Interloc) for their successful rollout of a fully mobilized, cloud-based Maximo solution incorporating all of DART's enterprise-wide assets.

DART's Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) project grew out of a 2015 assessment of asset management practices and systems. The findings showed that:

  • Gaps existed between functionality delivered by legacy systems and business requirements, and 
  • Legacy systems did not support the adoption of industry best practices and DART's future needs.

Partnering with Interloc Solutions for installation and integration of IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software and ongoing hosting services, DART's EAM project included a full enterprise-wide deployment of Maximo resulting in all asset classes throughout the enterprise residing in one Maximo cloud-based asset repository with a fully mobilized workforce performing field-based asset inventory and work management functions. 

At planned capacity, the EAM system will support up to 1,000 maintenance professionals. The integrations to other enterprise systems include Lawson, ESRI, Fleet Management and a Vertical Lift Machine automated inventory. Mobile applications include Work Management, Inventory Management and Asset Condition, with focus on Sate of Good Repair (SGR) data requirements. 

Assets included Bus, Rail, Signals, Track, Facilities, Materials management and I.T. assets, among others. With its mobile capability, DART has achieved significant improvements in the SGR inspection process including improved accuracy, radically reduced time to complete inspections, real-time data and streamlined workflow.

Interloc Solutions is an IBM Gold Business Partner and the largest independent IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management systems integrator in North America.
