A distinct competitive advantage that we have over our competitors is that we treat our clients as active stakeholders in the continued development of the ICON program, through our User Group meetings. At the User Group Meetings we hold round table discussions with our clients to determine what features and enhancements they need from the program. From these discussions we develop a list of proposed features and enhancements for ICON and then have our authorized users vote for the features that are most important to their pavement management operations. Our software development activity is prioritized according to the results of the voting process held at our User Group Meetings. We challenge our competitors to come up with a more effective development model.

Q.Why are you called GoodPointe Technology?
A. Actually the name "GoodPointe Technology" came from one of our clients who was helping us brainstorm for ideas to find a name for our business venture. As we discussed what we hoped to accomplish in our venture this client told us we had a really good point. Then he said, "Good point, good point. Hey you should call yourselves good point!" We named ourselves GoodPointe Technology to capture that moment that occurs in those important meetings when great ideas converge and the spirit of cooperation is sparked. Now when hear the phrase "you have a good point" spoken in our meetings with our clients and business partners, it reassures us and the mission of our company.
