Ventia has chosen to implement the Asset Vision platform to record and manage their Road Asset Management Contract (RAMC) with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) in Queensland, Australia.
Ventia have provided services for TMR via the Generation 1 RAMC since 2013, and were awarded the Generation 2 RAMC in 2019 for a further five years. This contract will see the team at Ventia provide asset management services, road pavement and drainage maintenance activities and a significant program of road rehabilitation, overlay and reseal works across Queensland’s South East Coast state and national road network from 1 July 2019.
After utilising the Asset Vision Platform for a number of years on various projects, Ventia made the decision to expand its use into its Gen 2 RAMC to better manage its assets and is also adopting our Co Pilot add-on, to promote safe and efficient road inspection practices. Co Pilot enables a road inspector to record defects at the click of a button, using GPS location capture, photos and voice recognition, all without having to stop their vehicle or take their hands off the wheel.
“Asset Vision gives us the simplicity and ease of use that is critical out in the field with our inspectors and works crews, without compromising on functionality and reporting. The Asset Vision team continues to impress us with their pipeline of continuous development and innovative enhancements. Asset Vision is the market leader in asset management software.” – Giles Lewer, Asset Manager at Ventia
Our team is currently working closely with Ventia to configure Asset Vision to suit their operational requirements, as well as migrate Asset Register data and maintenance history from their existing system. Asset Vision is expected to go live across the RAMC contract in late October 2020.
Ventia is one of the largest essential services providers in Australia and New Zealand. Ventia is an independent partnership between funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management and the CIMIC Group and was created in 2015 following the merger of Leighton Contractors Services division, Thiess Services and Visionstream.
In 2020, Ventia grew to combine more than 50 years’ of industry knowledge and experience with the acquisition of Broadspectrum (formally Transfield Services) and today has over 35,000 talented people and subcontractors across Australia and New Zealand.
