The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) has selected Aurigo Software for a multiyear contract that will help the department to streamline and modernize the state’s transportation planning process.
In a June 28 press release, the software company said it will help HDOT to deliver capital improvements totaling over $1.4 billion in 2024 to Hawaii’s highways, airports, and harbors. Aurigo plans to use Masterworks – the company’s flagship product suit – to help HDOT prioritize projects, manage state and Federal funds, and assess program performance.
“Hawaii DOT is excited to implement Aurigo’s Masterworks platform to support our strategic goals of improved safety, resiliency, and economic vitality,” said Ed Sniffen, director of the HDOT. “Modernizing our capital planning operations will speed up approval times and help deliver the infrastructure Hawaiians need now and in the future.”
The platform will integrate with HDOT’s existing technology stack, including design software by Autodesk. The pre-configured application interfaces will provide a “single source of truth” for HDOT, allowing it to transfer data between different project phases.
Additionally, Masterworks will help the department create capital projects, prioritize them, and estimate their costs. It also provides an easy way to track funding sources, allowing HDOT to update and combine funds on projects as needed.
“Hawaii’s unique geography and multimodal approach to transportation requires careful planning and selection of the right projects to meet their residents’ infrastructure needs,” said Balaji Sreenivasan, CEO and founder of Aurigo Software.
“Our team is delighted to partner with the state to streamline how projects are evaluated and funded, leading to more reliable multiyear forecasts, and reduced financial risk for their statewide program,” Sreenivasan added. “We’re thrilled to contribute to their mission and support a safer, more connected future in Hawaii.”
Hawaii is joining several other states that use Masterworks to modernize their capital programs, including Utah, Delaware, Massachusetts, and Iowa.
