Aurigo Offers Free Trial for Capital Planning Software

The trial, meant to promote updates to the Aurigo Essentials product, could help local and regional agencies decide the best way forward for construction management tools. The move comes amid a relatively high level of public-sector infrastructure spending.

Aurigo, which sells software for capital planning and construction management, is giving local public agencies a technology freebie — sort of.

The Texas-based company is allowing U.S. and Canadian agencies to sign up for a free, 30-day trial of Aurigo Essentials.

That software, which debuted in 2019 and has recently gained improvements, was designed to help “city and county public works departments, water authorities, transit agencies and other government entities plan and execute their capital programs to deliver infrastructure and facilities to their communities,” according to a statement.

Aurigo, touting this offer, cites U.S. Census Bureau data that says about 25 percent of construction spending in the country stems from public-sector activity.

Ongoing federal and state programs also are increasing local spending on infrastructure projects focused on climate change, broadband access, transit and many other areas.

“With our latest release, we have transformed Essentials, powered by AI and a new mobile app, to deliver transparency, efficiency and affordability to local agencies,” said Balaji Sreenivasan, CEO and founder of Aurigo Software, in the statement. “The release includes a public portal that enhances transparency and a modern UI that improves user experience at cost-effective pricing, making these powerful tools accessible to capital project owners.”

The company says the software can boost collaboration between everyone involved in projects, help agencies standardize workflows and improve community interaction. The software has FedRAMP and StateRAMP accreditations.

Such cities as Seattle, Portland and Las Vegas already use Aurigo software.
