UK-based infrastructure and asset management software developer Yotta has signed a non-exclusive reseller agreement with the Sweden-based Roads Surveying Technology (RST) division of leading engineering, design and consultancy company Ramboll.
Yotta will provide technical support and training to Ramboll that will initially focus on selling Yotta’s Horizons visualized asset management software platform to highways departments of municipalities and councils within its target countries.
Yotta is currently training Ramboll RST staff on the Horizons software platform, which is a visualized Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) asset management system designed to make it easier for users to picture, manage and optimize all their strategies and records in an effective way, using a single cloud-based system. With Ramboll actively engaging highways administrations across the region, Yotta is also developing a Swedish language version of Horizons to help it streamline the sales process when demonstrating the software.
“We are looking forward to working in close collaboration with Yotta to deliver its high-quality Horizons software to clients, and add value and strength to our own surveying proposition in engaging with them,” said Peter Ekdahl, director of RST at Ramboll.
“Working with its Horizons software gives us the opportunity to extract more strategic insight from the data we gather, and also enables us to provide greater insight to our clients into the state of their infrastructure assets today, and the options they have to maintain and upgrade it.
“Adding Horizons to our overall portfolio allows us to effectively provide a one-stop shop to clients. We can deliver a comprehensive service offering, incorporating not just condition data, but also strategic asset management software and Yotta’s support services. This will help clients to enhance the decision-making process and plan ahead, by more effectively exploring the likely impact of different programs of work and long term maintenance strategies.”
Simon Topp, director of marketing and international business at Yotta, commented, “We are excited to be working in partnership with Ramboll. The Nordic market for highways infrastructure asset management is a diverse one, and there are extensive challenges to address. However, we also see significant opportunities. Working with Ramboll will give us much greater access to the Nordic and Polish markets. The combination of Ramboll’s in-depth market understanding, far-reaching engineering capability and customer knowledge with the Horizons software with our own strategic asset management expertise enables us to present a compelling service offering to national, regional and local highways administrations across the region.”
