Yotta’s Alliance with Lehmann + Partner
Technology company Yotta has announced it has signed a partnership agreement with Germany-based service provider for transportation infrastructure analysis, LEHMANN + PARTNER to work together to deliver strategic asset management solutions and services to municipalities across Germany.
The announcement coincides with the launch of the prestigious German road congress, Deutscher Straßen- und Verkehrskongress 2016 (28-30 September 2016, Bremen, Germany). As part of the agreement, the two companies will collaborate to deliver the Horizons visualised asset management platform into many of LEHMANN + PARTNER’s municipality clients across Germany. In line with this, LEHMANN + PARTNER is showcasing Horizons on its stand (E30) throughout the show and running demonstrations.
“For us, working with Yotta is a perfect fit,” says Alexander Bock, authorised manager, LEHMANN + PARTNER. “We collect data on the conditions of the roads, run surveys and deliver consultancy to our clients about their road inventory requirements and finances. Working with Yotta and its Horizons software gives us the opportunity to extract more strategic insight from the data we gather and deliver that enhanced awareness to them in an optimum way.
“This will, in turn, allow our customers to bring together diverse data-sets to improve the decision-making process and plan ahead by exploring a wide array of different long term maintenance strategies and programmes of work,” adds Bock.
Simon Topp, director of marketing and international business at Yotta, commented: “We are very excited about the potential of the new alliance with LEHMANN + PARTNER. The two companies have complementary service and solution offerings. We concentrate on the delivery of strategic highways asset management software, while LEHMANN + PARTNER’s strength is in data collection, measurement and consultancy. But both companies share a similar business culture; a common vision of how strategic asset management can transform highways infrastructure and a clear focus on meeting and exceeding customer needs.
The new partners are already working together on Horizons projects with two clients in Germany. Moving forwards, LEHMANN + PARTNER is actively looking to work with Yotta to develop Horizons and strengthen opportunities in the German market.
