Yotta Amey Partnership Reaches New Horizons
Leamington Spa, June 2, 2015—Two of the leading names in asset management and infrastructure services have come together to launch a new approach to asset management. Based on the highly successful Horizons visualised
asset management platform, Amey Asset Manager combines best of breed technology with internationally recognised asset management excellence. Already
supporting a number of projects including Local Authority Highway and Highways
Agency ASC contracts Amey Asset Manager improves access to essential data.
This allows users at the frontline of highways maintenance to look at the
whole life cycle of an asset; predicting performance and possible failures,
informing long term strategies and supporting decision making.
“We already had an award winning pedigree from our work in highways PFI
projects,” commented Dave Spencer, Managing Director of Amey’s engineering
consultancy business. “However what we needed was to be able to apply this
experience across a range of scenarios giving our customers a robust, easy
to use yet technologically advanced solution. Yotta’s Horizons platform is a
proven and well supported solution; giving real time access to essential
asset data to support and improve decision making and was an ideal match for
our requirements. The development of Amey Asset Manager was a logical step
in Amey’s journey to continuously improve how we use our practical
knowledge to make better informed complex asset decisions.”
“Amey has a well-deserved reputation for asset management across a range
of industries,” added Nick Smee, CEO of Yotta. “We were therefore delighted
they chose to base Amey Asset Manager on our Horizons platform and our
experienced consultants have worked closely with Amey to ensure Horizons can
be deployed across different scenarios.”
Amey Asset Manager is already supporting a number of contracts including a
Managing Agent Contractor account with Central Bedfordshire, a £2.7
billion PFI project for Birmingham City Council as well as a number of Highways
Agency Asset Support Contracts (ASC). Other client sites where Amey Asset
Manager has been deployed include Liverpool City Council and Staffordshire

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
revolutionised asset management across a range of applications and is now used by around 50 local authorities in addition to service partners and maintenance
