Anniversary Ceremony Takes Place at Xchange 2019, the Company’s Global Conference and Networking Event
AgileAssets Inc., a leading provider of transportation asset lifecycle management solutions, marks its 25th Anniversary as a pioneer and innovator in the field of infrastructure asset management. A commemorative celebration will take place today during a welcome reception that kicks off Xchange 2019, the company’s global user conference and professional networking event that runs through October 3 at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center in Austin, Texas.
From its origins as a premier pavement management consulting firm in the early 1990s, AgileAssets has evolved into a major player in the delivery of enterprise asset management software solutions for government and private agencies that manage national, state, and local road networks around the world. The company’s history is one of continuous, industry-leading innovation. It boasts a product portfolio of more than 15 web-based and mobile solutions that support the planning, analysis, and day-to-day operations necessary to manage a wide range of infrastructure assets—from pavements, bridges, tunnels, culverts, and stormwater assets to vehicles, equipment, road signs, signals, facilities, and more.
“We were the first company in our space to develop a windows-based software solution for pavement management,” said AgileAssets Founder and CEO Stuart Hudson, P.E. “We were also the first to move to a client server when that became popular, and the first to deliver functionality through the web early on, when that was very difficult to do.” Hudson added, “Now we are one of the first in our industry to provide enterprise solutions via software as a service, or SaaS—which raises the bar even higher in terms of the performance, security, availability, and affordability of the solutions we offer to our clients.”
During Xchange 2019, AgileAssets leaders will unveil a vision for the company’s next quarter-century, including an ambitious product roadmap that will integrate artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things into its asset lifecycle management solutions to support better data collection, analysis, and decision-making. The company’s software products already incorporate advanced mapping, analytical, and reporting capabilities that help agencies optimize their asset management strategies and make the best use of available funds.
“We’re proud of our legacy and excited to influence the next 25 years of advancements in transportation and public works,” said AgileAssets Chief Operating Officer Michael Lester. “Our goal is to help our clients save time, money, and lives by delivering safer, more reliable infrastructure networks with higher performance and lower costs across asset lifecycles throughout the full asset portfolio.”
To realize its vision, AgileAssets will continue to invest in attracting, hiring, and developing the brightest and most highly qualified team members from around the globe.
“The skill sets of our employees have evolved to match the sophisticated work we are doing,” said AgileAssets Chief People Officer Marnie Boyd, SPHR. “Our staff includes people from more than 20 countries, and 50% of our employees hold advanced degrees in their fields. We will continue to recruit the highest-quality candidates that represent a good cultural fit with our diverse workforce in this competitive market.”
