Welcome from Janet Treadway, AASHTOWare Project Task Force Chair

November 19, 2020

Greetings everyone.

As 2020 is coming to a close, I am sure that some of you are like me and wish that several areas in your lives were back to “normal”.  I thought I would highlight some of the positives that have come from the amazing example of the collaborative spirit that each of you brings to the AASHTOWare Project product. The AASHTOWare Project Task Force wants to thank each and every one of you for your continued commitment and passion to enhancing the AASHTOWare Project product suite.

User Webinars – This year we increased our number of webinars to announce new functionality or keep the user community informed. The number of participants increased with each presentation and we have received positive feedback. We are anxious to continue to deliver topics that are user-centric and meet your needs.

First virtual PUG Annual Meeting – Some of you may have had the opportunity to participate in the first virtual PUG Annual meeting. Thanks to the combined efforts of the PUG Board, the PTF, and our contractor, Infotech, we successfully delivered several hours of business meetings and training content. If you missed it, you can locate them on the aashtowareproject.org site. After logging in, select Community>PUG, then click the “Presentation Archive” tab on the page.

Multi-release in a year – In February we released AASHTOWare Project 4.3 with 15 enhancements and over 100 technical upgrades and maintenance fixes. In September we released AASHTOWare Project 4.4 with 11 enhancements, 22 technical upgrades, and over 300 maintenance fixes. The efforts from the FPG members, Alpha TRT testers, and Beta agency testers helped to make that possible and we thank you.

Please know that all of us, The AASHTOWare Project Task Force, AASHTO staff, and Infotech staff, hope that you are healthy and well and continue to be.
