Netherlands-based, IT and services consultancy, Van der Meijden (VDM-Management and advice) has announced it has signed a partnership agreement with asset management provider, Yotta.
Under the terms of the agreement, VDM-Management and advice will offer Yotta’s next generation connected asset management software suite, Alloy to local and regional authorities across the Netherlands as a solution for waste management.
VDM-Management and advice will be focused on selling Alloy as a waste management tool into waste departments in local authorities, municipal waste companies and waste collector agencies across the Netherlands as well as offering first line support.
