There are a wide range of software products available for collecting highway inspection data. However many fall short of delivering true highway asset management. The time taken to collate data, analyse it and act accordingly is often overlooked. Especially in the initial point of selecting highway asset management software.
Price becomes a leading factor in choosing highway inspection software but what is the true cost?
Data Collection & Processing
If your field crews are slowed through the process of collecting data. Or even there is downtime caused through the use of the inspection software. At this point it could be costing you more than you had planned.
Indirect costs such as labour and fuel can easily outweigh any software license costs. Especially if there is a detrimental effect of deploying the software. Good highway asset management software should improve efficiencies way beyond the cost of the software.

How To Choose Your Asset Management Software
The first consideration before making an in investment in any software is evaluate what you currently have. Ensure that it is an honest review of the end to end users. At every user point you need to have some input from an actual user of the systems. Above all never assume that one department is less important than the other.

The ease of use and the flow of data from start to finish is everything. Useable data has a massive impact on productivity. If the asset management software is great except the reporting will it still be acceptable. If it takes days to pull the information together what is the real cost.

- What if you decide that you want to scale up its usage. Can they provide that solution.
- Can you report on all the data within the system. Or do you need to rely on the software provider to add functionality for you to see the results?
