Recent Highlights

We are so excited to officially announce that Pavewise was selected as a finalist at the SXSW Pitch 2024 event, spotlighting our innovative paving software in the Smart Cities, Transportation & Sustainability category. Among 670 entries, we are one of 45 chosen to present at SXSW from March 8-16 where we will be able to showcase our software’s impact on the paving industry.

Bryce and Michael had another busy month of expos/events. We had booths set up at the DAPA 2024 Conference in South Dakota, National Pavement Expo in Florida, and Pave/X in Texas.

Key takeaways:

  • Pavewise is applicable to other verticals outside of asphalt paving including: Concrete, Dirt, and Municipalities and DOTs (i.e. patching crews and other maintenance activities).
  • The QC area is in need of some help; we are working on creating some tertiary solutions for that space and offering a more comprehensive solution for small to midsized crews.
  • We learned about more software solutions available and confirmed that NONE of them are accounting for weather in their solution.

Pavewise is working on new MSA for contracts with customers.

Bryce was invited to Washington, D.C. to meet with Instrotek and Granite Construction to discuss 2024 partnerships with Pavewise, Inc.

Aaron, our full-stack software engineer, spoke at Full Stack Fargo about how to use AI in the software developer’s workflow.

We have developed a partnership with Asphalt Pro Magazine to continue providing paving articles, tips, and data content for readers.

Bryce was featured in the First Customers podcast that was published recently. He also participated in podcasts with Thriving Entrepreneur on 1/29 and Side Hustle City on 1/31. Links to these podcasts will be put on our website as they are published.
