To help agencies get started on using AASHTOWare Bridge Management software, the Task Force and Mayvue have several tools available to assist with orientation and answering questions.
User Group Meetings are held annually for members of the user community to learn more about the software through presentations, training sessions, and forums. Documentation is available within the software, video guides/tutorials are available on YouTube, and you can always contact us to obtain additional information.
The perfect place for agencies to get started with the AASHTOWare Bridge Management software is the Orientation for New Users page.
