Sep 25, 2015 -- Yotta Australia, the authorised distributor of Horizons software for Australia and New Zealand, has won its first contracts for the visualised asset management platform. The recently signed software and service agreement will see Horizons being used to support two large-scale Maintenance Alliance Contracts encompassing more than 7,500kms of arterial road network for VicRoads, the road and traffic authority in the state of Victoria. Yotta Australia worked in partnership with Fulton Hogan, who successfully bid for the VicRoads tenders, demonstrating the power of Horizons for asset management, strategic works planning and scenario modelling.
“The inclusion of Horizons within our bid was a key selling point and differentiator,” commented Glenn Johnston, National Manager – Infrastructure Services at Fulton Hogan. “With support from Yotta Australia, we were able to communicate our proposals clearly and precisely and demonstrate how we would use the software to strategically plan works, making use of all available data to deliver better outcomes for the road network and the greater community.”
Fulton Hogan, a specialist with more than eighty years’ experience in the transport infrastructure sector, was awarded two Maintenance Alliance Contracts by VicRoads. Covering the Eastern and South Western Region, Fulton Hogan will deliver a complete range of maintenance services across the highways realm for an initial period of five years, with a possible extension of an additional five years. Yotta Australia supported Fulton Hogan throughout the bid process, using Horizons to demonstrate different scenarios and options available as part of the tender offering.
Horizons, a visualised asset management platform, was launched in the Australia New Zealand region in early 2015.
