Roadway Management Technologies (RMT), headquartered in Little Rock, is the recipient of the 2022 Top Tech award given by the American Public Works Association.

RMT has been awarded this distinction two years in a row.

In 2021, RMT was presented with APWA’s Top Tech Award for their innovative Asset Management System.

RMT has developed a data collection system for city and county fleet vehicles. Using sensors under the vehicles, they collect data on road conditions on a daily basis and in relative real time.

This data allows for predictive modeling to determine the quality of the roads and helps provide estimates on longevity for maintenance. The end result allows local governments to prioritize costly road repairs.

“We’re incredibly flattered to be named APWA’s Top Technology for 2022. The award comes as a result of the hard work of an extremely talented and dedicated team. I am honored and humbled by what we have been able to achieve in such a short time,” said Candler McCollum, RMT founder and CEO. .

“I want to take a moment to thank the cities and counties we have partnered with to develop these innovative technologies and systems. We’re excited to continue to revolutionize the technology available to the public sector and bring communities together with smart infrastructure,” McCollum added.
