Leamington Spa, UK, 06 March 2012 – Yotta DCL has released a new version of its UKPMS (UK Pavement Management System) software. MARCHpms version 4.4 is part of the Yotta DCL Horizons “visualized asset management platform” and is used by highways departments to improve road network asset management. The officially compliant and health-checked software provides important new features, including network map editing improvements, HAMFIG (Highway Asset Management Financial Information Group) report updates and Performance Indicator report updates.
With MARCHpms, highways departments can process visual and machine survey data according to UKPMS rules. They can easily define a UKPMS network, compile an inventory of highway items and input condition surveys. The software’s automatic processing enables rating, treatment selection and prioritisation by condition, estimating and budgeting giving Local Authorities a clearer understanding of the condition of their road networks and aiding them with prioritizing their maintenance schemes.
“MARCHpms leads the market in performance for loading, processing and reporting pavement condition surveys. We are committed to the development and improvement of the UKPMS and we see it as a crucial part of the vision we have for the Horizons platform of highway asset management solutions,” said Nick Smee, Managing Director, Yotta DCL.
MARCHpms also features online help, password protection for managing access rights, a user-friendly rules and parameters interface and priority list reports. MARCHpms users include Southampton City Council, Norfolk County Council, Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council, West Sussex County Council, Hampshire County Council and Walsall Council.
