Exactrak signs deal with Yotta to deliver vehicle tracking for UK local authorities

Exactrak, the vehicle weighing and telematics provider, has signed a partnership agreement with asset management provider Yotta to provide solutions to UK local authorities.

Local authorities that have waste collection and maintenance vehicles fitted with Exactrak hardware will be able to use Yotta’s connected asset management software Alloy.

Alloy will visualise and share data from Exactrak’s route navigation and automated spreading solution, Navtrak and its routing software, Map-a-Route.

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

Local authorities will be able to see what work is being done and is completed, in turn enabling them to make decisions across their applications, that will include areas like gritting and the use of weighbridges, which Exactrak said councils have historically often managed in a “siloed fragmented manner”.

The initial driver for the partnership was a joint opportunity with a London Borough Council. 

The council was already using software from both Yotta and Exactrak and wanted to integrate solutions from both.

Mark Wilcox, telematics market manager for the innovation division at Exactra parent company 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.”

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