We recently spoke with Jyle from Murray River Council, NSW Australia, about his experience with ATLYST and the benefits realised since implementing the analysis software. Jyle shares with us how ATLYST has provided data-sharing solutions which are not only easy to perform and visualise, but also save vast amounts of time for multiple people in the organisation.

MetroCount: Can you detail how you use ATLYST and how your organisation has benefitted?

Jyle: Prior to using ATLYST we had a series of folders by year with approximately 1200 .eco files in them which were numbered 1-1200, and we also had spreadsheets for each year detailing that a certain number corresponded to a certain location. This made finding the required data very tedious and time-consuming. I personally have greatly benefited from ATLYST because now when someone needs traffic data, instead of requesting it from me, they can simply log in and find what they are looking for.

MetroCount: What features do you find the most useful within ATLYST?

Jyle: The ability to see all years AADT with a single click is extremely helpful for attempting to predict future increase in traffic with past data. The standard report spreadsheets are also great to download and give a great deal of information instantly.

MetroCount: What do you see as the primary function of ATLYST in your organisation?

Jyle: Subscribing to ATLYST was primarily to ensure we could let everyone in the organisation who needs traffic data see it without delay. As with our old system, if I was not available at the time, whoever was requesting information would simply have to wait until I had time to find what they were looking for.

MetroCount: Which problems are ATLYST helping to solve in your organisation?

Jyle: ATLYST has been helping us with the lack of shared information and with the internal process. There is no more time wasted for stakeholders requesting and waiting for data, and I do not need to waste time searching for relevant data as well.

MetroCount: How did you find the onboarding process and how have you found the ATLYST support team?

Jyle: Other than the time it took for me to upload and plot all our past data into the system (1200 .eco files), the set up process was very easy. I only had to discuss a couple of minor things with the support team where I had made a mistake and needed something changed, but those experiences were pain-free and efficient.

MetroCount: Can you share any outcomes from using ATLYST and how that may have positively impacted decisionmaking or planning within your organisation?

Jyle: ATLYST is great for insights and for the use of information, especially for pavement design purposes. We use historic data which is very easy to visualise so we can predict increases in traffic and heavy vehicles. This helps us to make an informed decision on choosing a growth factor to ensure a pavement is not under-designed.
