Global Team — About Us

Idaso (Innovative Data Solutions) was founded to create free flowing data to enable free flowing cities. Our Smart cities software solutions are used in Europe, North America and Asia to gather and add value to traffic and transportation data. Traffic and planning consultants use this insight to design safer roads, ease traffic congestion and provide a healthier urban environment for all citizens.

We believe accurate timely data is central to achieving this aim, this is why we first turned our attention to the temporary traffic data collection industry. Our first step was to optimise the existing manual counting process. To do this we developed "SmarterCounting" a computer aided optimised software solution that has moved traffic counting away from tally counters, pencil and paper to using a games controller to count and classify traffic and automatically compile the data into excel reports with turning movement diagrams. SmarterCounting has an inbuilt verification system that provides the manual classified count industry with the first truly auditable quality control process guaranteeing accuracy of the data provided.

In order to assist in accelerating the speed of turnaround times for surveys we decided to address the capacity issue by developing Global Team. This is a crowdsourced labour force that enables traffic data collection firms upload their video footage to a platform where trained personnel from anywhere in the world can extract the data using SmarterCounting. This brings the benefits of scalability, project management and quality control to the process.
