Yotta – Jones Lighting Win
The latest Internet hosted software from Yotta is helping to keep highways across the North West of England illuminated at night. Mayrise Street Works and Mayrise Highways are being used by Jones Lighting who connect tens of thousands of street lights and illuminated signs to the electricity network each year. The hosted software is helping the Lancashire based electrical contractor to manage new connections and repairs for an Unmetered Connections Contract on behalf of Scottish Power Networks.
“This is a significant contract for us and it was therefore important that we had the best solution in place to ensure first class service levels not only for our client Scottish Power Networks but for other partner organisations and users of the highway network,” commented David Jones, Director of Jones Lighting. “Mayrise Highways and Mayrise Street Works underpin every job we do ensuring efficient works, effective communication and compliance with current regulations.”
Yotta’s Mayrise Street Works and Highways systems allow Jones Lighting to communicate with local highways authorities, comply with current legislation when working on the public highway and provide detailed reports to their client. The contract with Scottish Power Networks includes electrical connections, and repairs to faulty cables, for street lights, illuminated signs and bollards, telephone kiosks and bus shelters, for example.
The Yotta systems are being used to manage all new connection and repair works that impact on the public highway. Mayrise Highways allows for the co-ordination of works including the generation of work orders, invoices and inspection report while Mayrise Street Works allows Jones Lighting to efficiently communicate proposed works to local highways authorities. The software also ensures compliance with current street work legislation designed to minimise the impact of works for all users of the highway, including the new EToN 6 specification.
“Mayrise software has been used on this contract for a number of years and feedback from existing frontline staff both on the performance of the software and the support received was very positive,” continued Jones. “In fact, when we show our solution to users of other systems they are always impressed and often quite envious.”
