Yotta Sets Horizons on European Expansion
Leamington Spa, UK, May 19, 2015—Yotta has expanded its global operations
with the first European installations of the Horizons visualised 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.”
