Yotta DCL Brings Its Transportation Asset Management System to America

Matt Ball on December 18, 2012 - in Transportation

Yotta DCL is  launching Horizons, its innovative visualised asset management system, to at the  Transport Research Board 92nd Annual General Meeting (January 13-17 2013,  Washington, DC). The event is at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel  Exhibit Hall and  attendees are invited to visit Yotta DCL at Booth 3207 to learn  more about the company’s highway surveying services and cutting-edge web-based  technology.

Nick Smee, Managing Director of Yotta DCL, said:  “Since we launched Horizons in the UK we have been delighted by the response  from highways market sector.  Sales have dramatically increased over the  last 12 months, especially in the last six-months and show no signs of abating.  We know that this is a solution that would suit the USA too and this event gives  delegates a great opportunity to find out how they can benefit from Horizons to  greatly improve their highways asset management.”

With Horizons,  Yotta DCL has revolutionised highways software products to provide an intuitive  solution that brings data alive for the user. Instead of using disparate  applications, Horizons brings together GIS, pavement and asset management into a  single unified user-friendly hosted system. This combined functionality allows  users to manage multiple sets of data, make cost predictions, plan and model  various road maintenance scenarios, build schemes and ultimately, make better,  more informed decisions.

Developed with input from leading the  UK’s highways authorities, Horizons has a powerful analysis module that enables  users to project and analyse highways defect treatments based on multiple  strategies. This gives an instant view of what is achievable for a given budget  and helps guide decision makers to select the optimal solution for their road  network. Users can also analyse data over multiple years to produce accurate  projections for deterioration rates over time.

In addition, Simon  Topp, Business Development Director, will be presenting at the event. His  presentation “Pavement Performance Measures: A European  Perspective”  promises to be an enlightening talk that will help delegates  learn more  about what the company and its customers are achieving in the UK. Simon Topp  joined Yotta DCL in 2007 and spent his first year pioneering the new asset  inventory survey methodology within the highways industry. He has worked with  many Local Authorities in the UK over the last three years helping develop their  asset management and maintenance strategies.
