The international roadscape and highways technology company Gaist has signalled its commitment to the UK’s transport technology industry by joining the Intelligent Transport Systems trade association ITS (UK).
As an Executive Member, Gaist will sit on the ITS (UK) Council and help steer the overall strategy and profile building of the ITS industry working alongside leading government departments, consultants, contractors and suppliers.
Gaist uses digital processes to provide deep insights into roads and the roadscape and has the biggest ever data bank of highly detailed images of highway network to provide customers with intelligence and analysis. This includes high level asset information, mapping and location identification, surface materials analysis, deterioration modelling and HD site location imagery.
“Award winning Gaist are pleased to join ITS (UK) as Executive Members and look forward to supporting the UK’s ITS leaders in using effective technology to improve safety for all citizens and help the transport sector make informed decisions around investment and driving the green agenda,” explained Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Loveless. “Our Roads as a Service (RaaS) flagship solution enables clients to fuse a range of dynamic and forensic data feeds to provide world class asset management insight across location, attribution, condition and temporal dimensions supporting the roadscape public realm spectrum.”
“By joining as Executive Members, Gaist have immediately signalled that they are ready to be industry leaders and help to solve the transport challenges the country faces,” added ITS (UK) Secretary General Jennie Martin. “Gaist’s unique high resolution, detailed approach to road conditioning is a fantastic piece of technology in itself, and the company’s professional services which turns the raw data into information is fascinating and something that the rest of our members can learn from. We are delighted to have them on board.”
Gaist have chosen to join during ITS (UK)’s recruitment drive which has also seen Re-flow Workflow Management, Sopra Steria, TWM Traffic Control Systems, Chris Kennett Consulting, Vectio Traffic Engineering UK and Assetiam join the membership over the past few months.
As part of the recruitment drive, ITS (UK) members or partners are encouraged to introduce companies and organisations they work with to the benefits of being part of the Society. In return they receive £100 to donate to the charity of their choice. Gaist was introduced by Adrian Tatum, co-owner of the Highways-News.com website, who was a judge of last year’s ITS (UK) Awards. Adrian has asked that the £100 be donated to Hospice In The Weald in Pembury, Kent, who looked after his mother in the last months of her life.
