iWorQ’s pavement management system software is an easy-to-use, internet application enabling cities and counties to do complete asset management. It is essential that every local government agency have some type of Pavement Management System (PMS). The primary purpose of a Pavement Management System is to provide agencies with the information and analysis needed to apply the right treatment, at the right time, on the right road. When a Pavement Management System works well, it saves money for the city or county using it.
- Condition assessments
- Asset valuation
- Analysis of maintenance strategies
- Multi-year budgeting
- Queries and reporting
- Cloud based application
- Free tech support
iWorQ pavement management system software has all the tools for inventory, data collection, inspections, data management, and updates. The application creates dynamic data collection forms including lookup values and segment lists. In addition, iWorQ pavements tracks historical data, pavement treatment, and condition histories.
iWorQ pavement management system software can use many types of distress surveys including walking, automated or visual. iWorQ recommends using a visual distress survey based on the SHRP Distress identification manual to determine the remaining service life (RSL) of each segment. iWorQ can be customized to support any visual distress method.
iWorQ pavement management system software has the best custom reporting tools on the market. The user has standard reports including asset value reports for GASB 34.
Mapping and GIS
iWorQ’s Internet mapping utilizes shapefile maps produced from ArcView, ArcGIS or AutoCAD. iWorQ maps provide the user all the essential GIS functions and can be used by everyone in the organization.
Advanced Searches and Queries
With a simple query you can access condition ratings, current information, digital photographs, historical records, and locate pavement segments on the map. A detailed, or stored query can be used for analysis, statistical methods, and reporting. In addition the user can query and analyze all of the data fields including custom fields.
iWorQ Pavements can be customized to meet the needs of any organization. Users have the ability to add treatments, descriptions, and costs as well as custom database fields. In addition, any customization done by the user is completely integrated into the functions of the application including searching, data management, reporting, and history.
One of the primary functions of iWorQ Pavements is budgeting. This easy-to-use tool allows agencies to create and analyze multi-year budgets. The user can perform “What If?” scenarios as well as predict how well the road network will perform.
RSMS 98 Compliance
Several RSMS programs have been produced, however one of the most commonly used programs is the RSMS program developed and supported by the University of New Hampshire T2 Center (UNH T2). In the RSMS training manual published in March 1996 it gives four basic criteria that local government agencies need to use is selecting a PMS:
- It is easy to learn and apply because most decision makers will have no formal technical training.
- It must be systematic and provide an organized approach to assure that all contributing factors are taken into account.
- It must be practical. Taking care of road and street systems is an ongoing real life activity and the management process must be both workable and realistic
- It must be understood and accepted by the local board because there are no “free lunches” and a total commitment to the program is vital to make it work.
The UNHT2 Center produced the most widely used version of their RSMS program called RSMS98. This pavement management system has been used by hundreds of local government agencies all across the United States.

iWorQ has the best budgeting and planning tools on the market. Agencies can create 5 year plans, develop “What If” scenarios, and project how their treatment decisions affect the overall pavement network. It is easy to create a budget or a 5 year plan, print out reports and charts, and present the information to the city.
