Yotta Expands European Horizons
Yotta has expanded its global operations with the first European installations of the Horizons highway asset management platform. Working with Wegdekmeten, the newly appointed Yotta distributor in the Netherlands, the Dutch infrastructure services company De Jong Zuurmond will roll out Horizons across a number of projects. These will include maintenance of the fourth largest sea port in the Netherlands and contracts with Rijkswaterstaat, an executive of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. Horizons will be used to collate and present detailed highway asset information, collected by Wegdekmeten, to inform planning of maintenance works and condition reporting.
“The environments in which we operate are complex and challenging,” commented Gerrit Zuurmond, CEO of De Jong Zuurmond, “and our clients expect up to date, detailed and accurate reports on the services we provide and the condition of their assets. Working with Wegdekmeten, we can collect this level of data and now, using Horizons, we can interrogate and analyse the data to improve decision making and planning, and present the results in an easy to understand way.”
“We collect data for all types of infrastructure assets on behalf of a range of clients including contractors, such as De Jong, and owners including government organisations,” commented Fred Mekken, Owner at Wegdekmeten. “Working with Horizons we can help them turn this data into information that can be easily understood, shared and used to enhance decision making across a diverse set of applications.”
“This is the first application of Horizons outside the UK and represents a major milestone in the product lifecycle,” concluded Nick Smee, CEO of Yotta. “We already have a well-defined development path for the European market, based on the initial partnerships with Wegdekmeten and De Jong, and we are looking at a number of other opportunities around the world.”
Horizons is a highway Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) asset management platform designed to make it easier for asset managers to visualise, manage and optimise all their asset management strategies and records in a unique and effective way using a single cloud-based solution. Since launching to market in 2012 Horizons has experienced significant growth in sales in the UK and with customers including the Highways England (formerly UK Highways Agency), the London Borough of Richmond and Lancashire County Council, to name just a few.
