Pavia Systems, a software company specializing in technology for the transportation infrastructure industry, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Grathwol Automation, a Sandusky, Ohio-based firm providing intelligent telematics – IntelliMatics for heavy equipment enabling it to talk directly to Pavia Systems’ HeadLight software, a mobile project inspection system. This partnership allows Pavia Systems’ clients the benefits of Internet of Things (IoT) to automate activities like recording equipment operating hours and materials quantities directly through HeadLight.

IoT refers to sensors embedded in objects that can both sense the environment and communicate performance data in a way that allows users to respond quickly. In construction, this commonly refers to telematics. Utilizing Grathwol Automation telematics technology directly within the HeadLight mobile app provides valuable real-time equipment information to the entire project team allowing equipment and materials tracking to be automatically collected, greatly increasing inspector efficiency and information accuracy while reducing payment delays.

“We partnered with Pavia Systems because they share our vision of innovation for the use of technology to improve transportation construction,” said Kyle Grathwol, President of Grathwol Automation. ”We’re confident that a combined use of these technologies will improve our customers’ ability to effectively manage their construction projects by embracing the benefits of IoT on the job site.”

The two companies have a strong alignment with their market approaches as both are aimed to help construction project teams meet the expectations of today’s demanding delivery deadlines and growing construction programs by using purpose-built technology tools to manage the inefficiencies and risk often associated with infrastructure project delivery.

“Pavia Systems is excited to partner with a telematics leader like Grathwol Automation, said Si Katara, President and Co-Founder of Pavia Systems. “Automating collection of real-time equipment information for project inspectors will enable our customers to instead spend that time inspecting the higher value, higher risk activities, creating better outcomes for project delivery.”
