It can be set up and used “out of the box” by a competent engineer or technician with a good understanding of asset management. All data, rules, deterioration models, maintenance triggers and treatments, costs, budgets, etc. are held as data that can be added to or modified by the user. iROADS gives you all you would expect from a modern integrated asset management system and more.

iROADS’ flexibility allows for it to be deployed anywhere in the world, for use with all asset and survey types and for it to be adapted to local needs and conditions. iROADS includes integration with HDM-4 providing the road data needed for the analyses required to obtain donor funding.
