Leamington Spa-based asset management provider, Yotta has signed a partnership agreement with smart waste technology company, Enevo. The two companies will work together to provide joint waste management software and IoT to local authorities, initially in the UK, and later internationally, to help councils get added value both from their infrastructure assets and their workforces.
Enevo’s IoT sensor technology solution allows authorities to monitor waste bins around the clock, enabling local authorities to optimise their collection schedules and then use the data generated to schedule collections, track missed pick-ups and reduce overflows. This process enables councils to make significant efficiency and resource savings.
Following the partnership with Yotta, local authorities will be able to use Yotta’s connected asset management software, Alloy to visualise and share high-quality data from an Enevo app, enabling them to make more efficient use of their operational crews and back office resource.
The two companies have long been aware of each other’s technology. Both focus on deriving operational efficiencies and enhanced resource management for local authorities in the UK and further afield and were quick to appreciate the enhanced benefits that could be achieved by working together.
Anique Bravenboer, Alliance Manager at Yotta, said: “We are both technology disruptors in an industry that has historically been conservative but we believe this partnership has the potential to shake up the whole sector. Even our customers were approaching us unprompted to ask if we were doing business with Enevo because the synergy between our businesses was so clear.”
Andy Crofts, Director of Business Development EMEA, Enevo, said: “This partnership makes complete sense on every level. We both believe in the concept of ‘data to decisions’ and by collaborating we are able to deliver fully on this vision. By having a live feed of data from our solution into Yotta’s Alloy, customers will not only be able to optimise resources but also carry out their workforce optimisation, route planning and asset management much more efficiently.”
It’s been a successful year for Yotta, which is part of the listed company Oxford Metrics. It has reported 16 new contract wins, along with increased its overall headcount by 10 percent.
The projects have been secured across a range of service areas, including highways, street lightingand waste, featuring customers across the South West, Midlands and Yorkshire. Eleven projects also went live during the lockdown period as Yotta and its customers were able to adapt and deliver the new solution and training remotely.
