Gloucestershire County Council is using software from Yotta to help with the management of its street lighting.
Using Mayrise Street Lighting as a principal management system as well as in the field on mobile devices the council is already realising operational efficiency gains following implementation earlier this year. The integrated management solution is also being used to manage the council’s street lighting asset, with condition reports and forward maintenance planning, as well as providing financial control and reporting.
Gloucestershire County Council selected Yotta’s system following a review of its existing system and working practices. The previous street lighting software had been in place for a number of years and the Council had undertaken significant development in order to get the required functionality.
Ken Pitt, street lighting manager at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “We looked at a number of generic asset management systems before making our selection. Being specifically designed for street lighting Mayrise did what we needed it to do from day one. The support we received both during implementation, including the migration of 265,000 records from our incumbent system, and as we rolled out across the operation, has also been first class with excellent response times to all requests.”
