Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL)’s mobile cloud technology has found a central role to play in the modernization of New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) accident data collection system. MTA is now using Oracle Mobile Cloud Service to document vehicle accidents in a more efficient and accurate manner. It also turns out that using Oracle’s mobile cloud technology is putting MTA on the path to boost its revenues, because it can now build watertight cases against offenders.

In the upgraded accident documentation system, MTA officers are no longer relying on traditional pen and paper to record accidents. Moreover, documenting accident has also been simplified such that it processes that used to take hours can now be completed in a matter of a few minutes.

For MTA, Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL)’s mobile cloud technology has saved it money, time and pain of replacing its legacy Collision Accident Reporting System (CARS). According to MTA’s chief of enterprise application, Carolyn Ortega, all they needed to do to save time in upgrading CARS was to make Oracle Forms accessible on Oracle Mobile Cloud Service. AuraPlayer, an Oracle partner, helped the Authority to do that in a matter of days. Ortega notes that it would have taken months or even years and millions of dollars to undo the system that already existed and replace it with a new one, not to mention the potential disruption and failures that could follow.

Tablet-based documentation

In the new dispensation, MTA officers are now using Samsung tablets equipped with stylus pens to quickly take accident data anywhere and in almost any kind of weather. With that, the officers are able to clear the roads faster to avoid inconveniences to other road users. The process of documenting accidents using tablets is also more accurate.

Previously, the officers had to not only use legacy pens and papers to record accidents, but entry of the data in the back-end system was also prone to errors as data clerks couldn’t correctly input the details.

Tackling offenders

With more accurate accident documentation, MTA says it is able to successfully prosecute offenders and increase its revenues. For Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL), the support of MTA’s accident recording system could open doors to more deals with the Authorities and other transportation agencies.
