The city of Weslaco, Texas, has adopted ProStar’s (MAPS) PointMan solution to manage its utility systems.

PointMan is a patented cloud and mobile mapping software app that captures, records and displays the location of critical surface and subsurface infrastructure.

Founded in 1919, Weslaco is located at the southern tip of Texas along the Rio Grande and Mexican border. It is home to over 41,000 residents and is known for international trade and thriving agricultural communities.

“With our increased population growth, the demand for new utilities such as fibre optic, and the need for major improvements to our water and sewer systems, it became apparent that we needed to find a more efficient and accurate method for managing our city’s assets,” stated Alberto Aldana, City Engineer for Weslaco. “After exploring what solutions could meet our needs, it became quite apparent that PointMan was the best choice.”

“A large number of the over 50,000 small municipalities in the U.S. still rely on paper map systems to manage their critical assets, including buried utility systems,” added Page Tucker, ProStar’s CEO. “The digital era is upon us. We are well-positioned to help these small municipalities make the digital transformation with an affordable and easy-to-use cloud and mobile GIS solution.”

ProStar is a world leader in precision mapping solutions with a focus on the critical infrastructure industry. Its list of clients includes Fortune 500 construction companies, utility owners, government agencies, engineering and surveying firms, as well as municipalities.

ProStar (MAPS) is up by 5 per cent, trading at $0.21 per share as of 10:18 am EST.
