YOTTA ACCELERATES GROWTH IN AUSTRALIA WITH STRATEGIC PMS PARTNERSHIP
Strengthens foothold in country by signing agreement with leading hi-tech civil engineering consultancy
Highlighting the growing momentum behind its dynamic international growth, technology company, Yotta has announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Pavement Management Services (PMS), a leading hi-tech civil engineering consultancy based in Australia.
As part of the agreement, PMS will incorporate Yotta’s highway asset management software solution, Horizons, into its existing technology suite, and offer it under its own branding to existing and prospective customers across Australia – typically comprising local and regional councils, and state governments – alongside its own solutions and services packages.
Simon Topp, director of marketing and international business at Yotta, commented: “PMS has well over 30 years’ experience working in the Australian highways asset management and has developed extensive market expertise and a reputation as a trusted advisor during that time. Working with them will allow us to significantly extend our footprint for Horizons across the country.
“Not only will it give us a stronger sales presence on the ground, PMS’ in-depth understanding of the specific highways management challenges in different areas of the country will also give the combined solutions offering greater traction and credibility.”
“We are really impressed with Yotta and we see great potential in its innovative proposition to the Australian infrastructure asset management marketplace,” says John Yeaman, managing director, Pavement Management Services. “We are looking forward to integrating its highway asset management software, within our overall services proposition.
“Horizons is a smart modern cloud-based platform that will enable our customers to plan their road maintenance programmes more efficiently, engage more closely with their stakeholders, and deliver a holistic view that allows them to make a more robust case for funding and investment,” he adds.
Ultimately, the biggest beneficiaries of the partnership between Yotta and PMS are likely to be local authorities and state governments across Australia. Thanks to the agreement, these organisations will have the opportunity to use the latest visualisation asset management software to make more informed decisions about their highways network, while at the same time accessing the service and support of an organisation with in-depth knowledge of the roads network across Australia and the factors impacting on it.
