During the past decade, information systems and data management requirements following disasters have increased drastically due to the availability and price point reduction of hardware and software solutions. In fact, FEMA is now encouraging Public Assistance program applicants to leverage technology tools to recover more timely and accurately. A critical element to timely recovery is the capability to manage, audit, and report from massive data sets.
Thompson utilizes the Thompson Data Management Suite (TDMS) to not only manage disaster related data, but query from it, develop customized maps, link photographs and scanned images to data records, and to provide references from field documents, to contractor invoices, to proof of payment and ultimately project worksheet applications. Our streamlined approach to web-based data and document management provides FEMA Public Assistance program applicants with timely and accurate data for purposes of seeking enhanced reimbursement.
