Exactrak and Yotta in alliance: hardware, software and data

30/07/2020

Hi-tech weighing and vehicle telematics provider, Exactrak has signed a partnership agreement with asset management provider, Yotta, to provide joint solutions to local authorities.

Exactrak hardware can be fitted to waste collection or maintenance vehicles, feeding data from its route navigation and automated spreading solution, Navtrak and its dynamic routing software, Map-a-Route, into Yotta’s connected asset management software, Alloy.

This will allow local authorities to visualise and share the data collected and provided by Exactrak, which is part of Avery Weigh-Tronix.

Users will also be able both to display live vehicle tracking data and support enhanced collaboration between departments to create vehicle routes for all municipal applications.

As managers see exactly what work is being done and completed, smarter decisions can be made across all their applications, Yotta said.

That will include areas like gritting and the use of weighbridges, which councils have historically often managed in a siloed manner.

The partnership came out of a joint opportunity with a London Borough Council, which was already using software from both Yotta and Exactrak and wanted to benefit from the enhanced data integration available between the new partners’ two solution sets.

Anique Bravenboer, alliance manager, Yotta, said: 'Thanks to this partnership and the easy-to-use interface between the two companies’ software, we can add a new layer of functionality around vehicle tracking to our existing customer base. The synergy between Exactrak and ourselves should allow the partnership to reach not just UK customers but also a much wider international market over time.'

Mark Wilcox, telematics market manager for the innovation division at Avery Weigh-Tronix said: 'We immediately saw how well the two companies complement each other, not only in terms of their strong connections with council teams across the UK, but also in terms of skills and technologies. Working with Yotta helps ensure that we get in front of the right people within local authority teams.

'On the technology side also, Alloy brings great benefits,' added Mr Wilcox.

'It is a great tool in terms of its ability to connect assets, people and data across local authorities - but we were also very impressed with its visualisation capabilities. The way Alloy displays information pictorially really helps drive understanding and decision-making but it also helps us gain the specification requirements needed to ensure inclusion in public sector tenders.'

Customers across the UK are already using the combined Yotta Exactrak solution - and data taken from the Exactrak applications is already being used in Alloy.

The partnership said the next steps are for both parties work together to build further on opportunities already established in the UK and further afield.
