Connected asset management software and services provider Yotta has announced strong business growth and expanded its staff by 10%.
The company secured 16 new contract wins over the past few months across a range of service areas, including highways, street lighting and waste, featuring customers across the South West, Midlands and Yorkshire.
And 11 projects also went live during the lockdown period as Yotta and its customers were able to adapt and deliver new solutions and training remotely.
Three of the street works projects it has implemented recently were required to work with the Department of Transport's newly launched Street Manager processing system and so aimed to be live by 1 July in time for its launch.
All three customers went live ahead of the deadline and received benefits from Yotta’s Software as a Service being directly linked to the Street Manager API.
As a result of the extra work, the Leamington Spa-based firm has appointed eight new hires across sales, marketing, and product development, growing its total headcount to 92 employees while also still recruiting for six further vacancies.
'We’re immensely proud of the growth we’ve achieved so far in 2020 despite the obvious business challenges,' said Nick Smee, CEO, Yotta.
'Not only are we delivering innovation to councils and governments across UK, but we’re also creating jobs and we’ve been able to find better ways of working. Local authorities have responded well to doing business in a slightly different way to make these successes possible. I’m sure that our learnings over the past few months will help to shape the way we do business together in the long term.'
Yotta has also helped its customers adjust to remote working more easily through its Alloy software, including access via a mobile app.
