Mayrise IT helps Mott MacDonald Bentley deliver Cambridge Water contract

Posted: Wednesday 17th November 2010

Web hosted street works management software from Mayrise Systems is helping civil engineering company Mott MacDonald Bentley reduce the impact on road users of essential works to upgrade water services across Cambridgeshire.

Following the award of contract by Cambridge Water, JN Bentley (the contracting arm of Mott MacDonald Bentley) will oversee the maintenance and replacement of existing assets, plus the provision of new assets under the water company’s Asset Management Plan (AMP), including scheduled network pipe renewals, emergency repairs and meter installations. The three-year contract, with optional two-year extension, covers the AMP5 period (2010-2015) and will see JN Bentley working with H2O Water Services and Groupbridge to deliver works in the field.

MAYRISE for Street Works will support the processes JN Bentley has in place to meet the requirements of Government legislation, including the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) and the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA). The software will also help minimise the impact of street works on other road users through better co-ordination of works and management of planned and ongoing works in the field.

In addition to the core solution JN Bentley has chosen Mayrise Systems to host the software providing ‘software as a service’. Using the latest server and virtualisation technologies MAYRISE for Street Works is delivered as a secure and robust remote service directly to end users without the need for specialised internal IT infrastructure and support.

“Mayrise was already in place and had been running well for the previous contractors,” commented Ian Austin, General Manager at JN Bentley. “We obviously undertook a comprehensive review of all legacy systems and explored alternatives but saw no reason to replace the Mayrise System as it was performing well and met our operational and management needs. Having made this decision we did however decide to go down the hosting route as we felt this would provide a more reliable solution for both our internal users and external clients.”

Mayrise Online combines a core expertise managing complex communication infrastructures and applications with connectivity and hosting solutions from Kcom. The service also includes expert technicians who monitor the system around the clock ensuring data security and system performance. Utilising the very latest Microsoft 2008 Server and virtualisation technologies, authorised users can access, via the Internet, the remotely hosted Mayrise application. A secure and encrypted high-speed connection to a dedicated server enables seamless integration and joined up working between the customers’ remotely hosted data, applications and web services to internal network resources, 3rd party applications and data.
