Manitoba Infrastructure chose TraCS and deployed TraCS Mobile to Panasonic CF-20 Toughbook tablet PCs and weigh scale computers connecting to TraCS Office deployed on Citrix. The TraCS product has been in production since 11/2006 for our officers. Manitoba is continuing to promote the TraCS software as a global solution for electronic Ticket and MV Crash Reports.
Motor Carrier is using TraCS to create nearly 100% of its forms. As a province, we see nearly 90% of the entire provinces annual CMV Inspections electronically created and transmitted using TraCS, followed by 90% of Weight Certificates and 5% of Citations.
In the Fall of 2017 we had a major overhaul of our Citation form, upgraded to TraCS 17.18, and redeployed to a entirely new Citrix farm hosted on Windows Server 2012. Another interesting thing we have done is package the application in Microsoft AppV, this allows us to upgrade confidently knowing that the change will not affect any other applications in our environment. This makes scaling to additional servers a snap.
