Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES) Council has signed technology company Yotta to delivers its Alloy software for the management of its streetlights.

Streetlights at night

Under a three-year deal the council plans to use Alloy for reactive maintenance of its streetlighting assets. 

It will enable the council to configure and design its own asset types, clearly visualise relevant data, update systems and deliver data in real time for streamlined maintenance programmes. 

It should also enable B&NES to streamline operational workflows, eliminating manual interventions where they are not specifically required.

The software also makes it possible to see a full history of every streetlighting asset, enabling engineers out on site to review previous inspections and maintenance jobs that have been carried out.

Raising capability

Stephen Burrell, principal engineer, street lighting at B&NES, said: “We are longstanding customers of Yotta’s Mayrise software. We have always been impressed with the reliability of the system and its capability to help map, control and maintain our whole streetlighting inventory.

“Migrating to Alloy takes this capability up a level, enabling us to further improve our operational efficiencies and pinpoint where we can make savings by delivering more effective automated processes.”  

Yotta said the council also plans to implement Alloy Mobile to provide the data to inspectors and field workers through their mobile phones.

It is also looking at the possible integration of Alloy with third party systems such as FixMyStreet.
