CRANSTON, R.I. – DXC Co. recently chose technology workers assigned to the R.I. Division of Motor Vehicles to receive the company's quarterly team award for their work on the successful launch of the Division's new computer system.
The Rhode Island Modernization System (also known as the Rhode Island Motor Vehicle System – or RIMS) that launched July 5 replaced the 40-year-old technology previously in use by the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles. RIMS is designed to handle more than 240 different transaction types and to process an average of 1.4 million transactions annually.
DXC served as the lead vendor on the system's development and spent countless hours working with staff from the DMV, other Rhode Island state agencies and more than 70 partner entities to bring about a system capable of managing the needs of a modern motor-vehicle registry.
"RIMS brought the DMV's transaction processing into the 21st century, allowing the Division to serve its partner agencies and the public better and faster," said Walter R. "Bud" Craddock, the DMV administrator. "It is a testament to the dedication and skill of the DXC team that the computer system has operated as well as we had hoped from the day it launched."
For its efforts, DXC awarded its team assigned to the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles the U.S. Public Sector team award for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 – the period covering the final phase of RIMS launch preparations. The team was chosen from among hundreds of similar DXC projects eligible for the award.
"The client plays an important role in the work we do," said Saad Bashir, the DXC account manager assigned to the DMV. "This has been one of the best partnerships we've had and we want to share this award with the DMV team."
