Welcome to RAMM Software
RAMM Software provides exceptional Road Assessment and Maintenance Management software to RCAs, their consultants and their contractors. We are committed to the continuous improvement of the RAMM suite, as our aim is to deliver to our customers, the most productive software experience, at the best possible price.
The core of the RAMM Suite of Software is 30 years old this year and RAMM Software Ltd has now been developing and supporting it for the last 25 years. Sign up to our informative newsletter here.
RAMM is deployed through a hosted solution to nearly 300 clients throughout Australia, NZ and Fiji. This includes all 66 NZ Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs) as well as the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA). In addition, it is used by engineering consultancies providing services to these RCAs, numerous contracting companies performing road maintenance services, well over 100 local authorities in WA, and by Australian RCAs such as the cities around Melbourne (VicRoads), and the cities of Adelaide and Marion in SA.
The RAMM software suite is the asset and maintenance management tool used on every publicly owned road in New Zealand and on many roads in Australia and the Pacific islands. The software is also used to manage non-road assets such as buildings and open spaces. These assets and jobs can be viewed geospatially. Users rely on our software, which combines a robust asset database with the ability to perform assessments, asset valuations, forward works programming and more.

Latest from RAMM
Check the updates below to have the details on creating Make and Model fields for UDTs, the new way to change an existing password or to reset a lost password. Find out what RAMM users need to know including the issue with the Windows 10 Edge Browser.
See What We’ve Released in February
The RAMM map is becoming more powerful by the month. Graeme Norman our General Manager and James Lawrence, our Software Development Manager have combined to demonstrate the new features. There has been a performance boost. You can now create, save and then load layer groups. Assessment details for assets are now viewable, as is point information for a road on the map. Check this out here (3:35).
Make Model Fields in UDTs
When creating UDTs you will sometimes want the values in one field to be dependent on the values in another field. For instance if you select Holden at a car Make field, you’ll only want Holden models to be available at the car Model field. Similarly, if you were to choose Toyota at the car Make field, you would want only models such as Corolla, Camry and Hilux to be available at the car Model field. See how to do this here. (3:15).
An Introduction to Road Visual Condition Rating
Pavement Rating Assessment makes it really easy to enter your Road Visual Condition Assessments from your inspectors, into your RAMM database. You then use Treatment Length Dynamic Segmentation to section all your roads into Treatment Lengths of consistent performance and purpose. You then use Works Selection to decide the most efficient use of your road maintenance budget. Check this out here (5:05).
Forgot Your Password
We all forget our passwords from time to time. There has always been the option for a user to reset their own RAMM password. They way this is done has recently been changed. A new tool from Google, reCAPTCHA is used to prevent passwords being changed by bots or robots.
See the new way here (2:37).
Understanding the Utility Operator Register
Submitica and CAR Manager users do not always use the correct names of Utility Operators. They also use incorrect spelling and even organisations which are not Utility Operaters. This is most unhelpful when you are creating your Utility Operator activity reports. You can now ensure that Submitica and CAR Manager users select only Utility Operators from the MBIE official lists of Electricity and Telecommunications Utility Operators or those that you have recognised. Check this out here (5:06).
Windows 10 Upgrade
RAMM users who have upgraded to Windows 10 should be aware that the Edge browser which is bundled with Windows 10 does not support the Silverlight plugin. This means that users cannot launch and run the RAMM Silverlight applications such as RAMM GIS and CAR Manager. They should use Internet Explorer 11 which is also bundled with Windows 10.
