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
County  Council.

Horizons, on which Amey Asset Manager is based, is a  visualised
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

Amey Asset Manager is built on Yotta’s innovative  approach and Amey’s
extensive practical knowledge of infrastructure asset  management. It
encourages the sharing of best practice and has already  demonstrated that it is
providing significant efficiency savings for customers.  Amey Asset Manager
provides a robust asset management approach which is ideally  suited to future
demands such as incentivised funding.

Yotta is a provider of software and services that help  customers transform
how they manage their infrastructure  assets.

Innovation is at the heart of the Yotta approach; whether  in the
development of more efficient or more accurate surveying techniques or in  the
development of software that helps make the intangible tangible. The Yotta
Horizons and Yotta Mayrise platforms, used by the majority of local authorities,
national agencies and forward thinking utility companies, lie at the heart
of  Yotta’s ethos – helping organisations use asset data to inform better
operational and strategic decisions.
