The Ibis Sign Management System provides full support for the RoadVista™ Retroreflectometer. Export the file from the Retro. and import it directly in to the system without any additional file formatting or modifications, which is required in other management systems that are currently available on the market. Additional Retro. models will be supported as they are developed and when customers request the import method.

The RoadVista™ Retroreflectometer Model 922 provides quality measurements to ensure that MUTCD retroreflectivity guidelines are met. The system also provides automated calculation of sign condition status through the use of a simple input method using the notes option found on the unit. Additionally, no export file data manipulation is required before importing in to the system.


The Ibis Sign Management System has been integrated with the new and improved Panasonic Toughbook CF-H2 model to allow live web system usage, device tracking, follow mode, barcode scanning, and image capturing all in one. The ibisSMS utilizes the advanced Toughbook integrated 3g/4g internet options offered through AT&T & Verizon, the accurate GPS receiver, 2D/3D laser barcode, and quality camera to bring a real desktop style interface while on the go in the field.

Unlike the Android, Retroreflectometer, or Laptop Excel© entry options, the Toughbook direct web system interaction method reduces management and maintenance data processing and verification time. If your department is ready to utilize one of the most efficient means to manage your data, then the Panasonic Toughbook model CF-H2 is the device you have been searching for.


The Ibis Sign Management System provides simple import templates that can be saved and managed using Microsoft Excel© on any laptop or windows mobile device. For fast entry, a USB based barcode scanner should be utilized with the laptop so that barcodes can be scanned when adding them to the system or adding an inspection update. Although the laptop entry method isn't the optimal solution, it is avialable for customers who do not wish to use other mobile options due to budget restrictions or personal choice.
