As the federal government and states struggle under shrinking budgets to meet the $3.6 trillion infrastructure investment required by 2020 (as estimated by the American Society of CIvil Engineers), project owners will embrace lean practices that stretch investment dollars as far as possible. Infrastructure asset tracking solutions will provide the means for this as well as construction inventory control, thereby producing a win-win for producers, contractors and project owners. This will result in a system of lean infrastructure that will save costs throughout the value chain.

We charge a nominal price for training and tags, but contractors may use the system to track inventory and coordinate with vendors at no charge. Why? Because we believe that once contractors try Idencia, they will want all of their vendors to use it.
