Wokingham Takes to the Streets with Yotta’s Mayrise Software

Leamington Spa, UK, 18 June 2015 – The  UK’s Wokingham Borough Council is using advanced street works software from  Yotta to drive forward efficiencies in street works monitoring and management.  The Mayrise Street Works
system, including mobile working functionality, is  being used to allow Street Works Officers to access up to date information in  order to monitor works in progress and investigate completed  works.

The newly introduced mobile working practices also allow  council staff to check compliance of works, report overstays and recommend fixed  penalty notices. The introduction of mobile working, supported by Mayrise Street Works, is reducing the reliance on paper records and unnecessary trips to the office thereby maximising officers’ time in the field and  productivity.

Graham Barnwell, Traffic Manager at Wokingham Borough  Council, commented, “The introduction of mobile working in street works,  supported by Yotta’s Mayrise software, is already delivering operational  efficiencies. By
enabling officers to access the information they need, when  they need it, we are allowing staff to focus on the job in hand. By reducing the  need for Inspectors to return to the office or interrupt colleagues to obtain relevant information we are already seeing an increase in productivity and  improvement in the service we provide to the community.”

Wokingham  Borough Council is currently using Honeywell Dolphin mobile computers running  Mayrise Street Works Mobile software. The devices allow the Council’s Street  Works Officers and NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act) Inspectors to remotely  access the Street Works Register in order to research activities in progress and  investigate works after they have been completed.

Using the Mayrise  enabled mobile devices staff working in the field can also generate defect  inspection reports, recommend fixed penalty notices and check compliance with  permit conditions. Inspectors can report overstays to
provide evidence of an  offence which sends a warning to the promoter that the works are overrunning.  Section 81 (Defective Apparatus) notices can be directly sent to the works  promoter, mapped and with photographic evidence
this ensures the utility has the  information to locate and fix the apparatus in the quickest possible  time.

Mayrise Street Works is a complete solution for managing  street work notices for both street and highways authorities and statutory  undertakers. Handling the Street Works Register, National Street Gazetteer,  inspections management and defect reporting, the system eliminates paperwork,  ensures best practice and provides up to date information on the status of all  works. Mayrise Street Works also offers full compliance with the revised EToN 6 specification which aims to further reduce the impact of roadworks, through the better co-ordination and sharing of information between local authorities and  utility firms.

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.
