Three industry leaders in the asphalt industry software market sit down with Brandon Noel from Asphalt Contractor for a discussion on the growing space for technology platforms in the road building and production space.
There are few industries experiencing as rapid a pace of change as road building and asphalt production. From pavers, operators, quality control engineers, jobsite, and production site management — every paradigm is undergoing major shifts. At the same time, large portions of the workforce are retiring along with their knowledge, skills, and experience. Many are turning to technology and various software platforms, and recently AI, to try and fill the gap.
However, there can be a lot of confusion between what a contractor’s needs really are, and what a platform or product really offers. The Big Tech Roundtable is meant to provide an opportunity for industry leaders of tech companies to answer the frequently asked questions of contractors looking to adopt technology. We sourced questions from multiple contractors around the country, as well as other industry experts, and took them to three companies working deep in the asphalt space: Trimble, Cojali USA, and Pittbos.
