Yotta Announces Major Growth As 16 New Contract Wins Prompts Recruitment Drive
Leamington Spa – 9th September 2020 – Connected asset management software and services provider Yotta has achieved significant business growth over the past few months, securing 16 new contract wins and increasing their overall headcount by 10 percent.
The projects have been secured across a range of service areas, including highways, street lighting and waste, featuring customers across the South West, Midlands and Yorkshire. Eleven projects also went live during the lockdown period as Yotta and its customers were able to adapt and deliver the new solution and training remotely.
Three of the street works focused projects were working to a hard 1st July deadline, as a result of being required to work with the Department of Transport’s newly launched Street Manager digital data system. All three customers went live ahead of the deadline and receiving benefits from Yotta’s SaaS services being directly linked to the Street Manager API.
It’s been a sustained period of impressive growth for Yotta since March. The Leamington Spa based company has appointed eight new hires across sales, marketing, and product development, growing its total headcount to 92 employees while also still recruiting for six further vacancies.
“We’re immensely proud of the growth we’ve achieved so far in 2020 despite the obvious business challenges,” said Nick Smee, CEO, Yotta. “Not only are delivering innovation to councils and governments across UK, we’re also creating jobs and we’ve been able to find better ways of working. Local authorities have responded well to doing business in a slightly different way to make these successes possible. I’m sure that our learnings over the past few months will help to shape the way we do business together in the long term.”
Not only has Yotta continued to thrive through its established remote working capabilities, it has also helped its customers adjust to remote working more easily through its Alloy software that includes access via a mobile app. It has continued to deliver valuable product training to its customers, delivering sessions online through bitesize sessions and with access to training base material and pre-recorded training sessions through its online learning management system, something that it looks to continue offering into the future.
