Educational Webinar and Beta Test Recordings

Want to see some of the enhancements in AASHTOWare Project 4.4 first-hand? The AASHTOWare Project Task Force (PTF) has created multiple opportunities to do just that.

The AASHTOWare Project 4.4 Webinar

If you’re looking for a guided walkthrough of the latest update to AASHTOWare Project, we recommend watching our recent webinar, hosted by Infotech product experts Sarah Farmerie and Sonya Dooley. The recording of this webinar can be accessed by logging into aashtowareproject.org and navigating to Modules > AASHTOWare Project at A Glance > AASHTOWare Project Webinars.


Beta Test Recordings

Want to dive even deeper into the recent update? The PTF has made beta test recordings available for eleven of the key enhancements in AASHTOWare Project 4.4.  In

each recording, a product subject matter expert guides agency staff through beta testing

activities for each enhancement’s functionality and answers their questions. We hope these recordings will be helpful as you plan your testing activities. To access the recordings, log in to aashtowareproject.org and navigate to Modules > AASHTOWare Project at a Glance > AASHTOWare Project Training Videos > AASHTOWare Project 4.4 Beta Testing Recordings or click this link after logging in.


The Importance of Upgrading

We understand that agencies all have different needs and priorities – and that upgrading may not be one of them right now. Even if you can do without these enhancements, we strongly recommend upgrading to get the latest security patches and improvements. Using outdated software can increase the risk of security breaches. If you have any questions about the upgrade process, please reach out to your Infotech Account Manager.
