Highways and infrastructure technology company, Yotta has unveiled the latest version of its visualised asset management platform Horizons.
Version 2.7 reflects growing international momentum for Yotta behind its flagship solution, including in Australia and New Zealand, and follows up on the international launch of the platform last year by delivering full currency support, including for both the Australian and New Zealand dollar, and by making Dutch and Spanish language versions of the software available for the first time.
The latest version of Horizons will enable Yotta to help its distributor partner, Yotta Australia, grow in the Australasian region, as well as enhancing the service it offers to construction and infrastructure companies like asset management delivery leader, Fulton Hogan and reflects a concerted emphasis by Yotta on driving sales across the region.
Ian McLean, director, Yotta Australia, says: “We are already making extensive use of the Horizons software to help our clients on strategic works planning and scenario modelling projects. The latest version will make the process more streamlined and the software easier to use in the region, helping clients to more efficiently turn data into usable information that delivers better asset management and road maintenance outcomes.”
Glenn Johnston, National Manager – Infrastructure Services at Fulton Hogan explains: “With support from Yotta Australia, Horizons 2.7 is key to helping us strategically plan works for extensive road networks such as for VicRoads, the road and traffic authority in the state of Victoria. Horizons 2.7 will enable us to utilise all available data to deliver better outcomes for the road network and the greater community.”
Simon Topp, director of marketing and international business, Yotta, says: “We’ve been rapidly building on the success we have achieved with Horizons in the UK, and in the short time since launching the product internationally, we have already achieved successful implementations in Australia and also across Europe.”
“The challenges and complexity of highways infrastructure asset management is not unique to local authorities and relevant government departments across the UK,” he adds. “Industry bodies worldwide have similar challenges to face – and we are seeing growing interest in Horizons across many countries as a result. We’re confident the new language and currency capability we have introduced in version 2.7 will help us capitalise on this interest and drive ongoing momentum for the solution internationally.”
Yotta has also made several additional enhancements to the Horizons software in this new version primarily to enhance its usability across multiple geographies and to deepen its analytical functionality, which in turn will enable asset managers to take account of recently completed work when running predictive, forward-looking analysis.
“Our ultimate goal with Horizons is to help asset managers all over the world gather together all of the data they have at their disposal, turn it into knowledge and use it to drive better, more informed decisions. Version 2.7 furthers this key objective, enhancing the software’s language and currency capabilities, while enabling users to visualise and use their data in analysis and ensure that their future maintenance plans comply with government standards and meet the needs of the road user.”
