PUG Virtual Demo Room Office Hours

August 27, 2020

Infotech is pleased to announce that in support of this year’s PUG virtual meeting, we will host an Open Office Hours schedule of Zoom meetings that will be the foundation for a virtual demo room.

Monday, September 28, 2020, through Thursday, October 1, 2020, PUG members can sign up for specific topics or enter the demo room and request help from Infotech subject matter experts (SMEs).  This virtual demo room will be open daily from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM ET and from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM ET.

The virtual demo room will give users a preview of AASHTOWare Projectä 4.4, which will be released on September 30, 2020. There will be one to two topics for each of the following nine areas:

  • AASHTOWare Project Technical
  • Civil Rights
  • Labor
  • Construction
  • Materials
  • Agency Views
  • Data Analytics
  • Estimation
  • Preconstruction

PUG members can sign up for one of these sessions or request a special topic prior to the PUG on aashtowareproject.org, so please check the website for updates and to sign up early.

A general Zoom meeting will also be available to accommodate those members who prefer the “drop-in” approach to the demo room. A moderator will greet each person and direct them to the appropriate SME for their area of interest. If all the experts are busy helping other members, then the moderator will schedule a later meeting between the member and expert.

Infotech has scheduled the Open Office Hours around the PUG presentations and meetings to accommodate as many time zones as possible. The PUG members span six time zones from Alaska to the Atlantic coast. This will be the first year that the demo room will be available across all of these time zones.
