Gaist and Safecote enter data sharing partnership

Safecote and Gaist have entered into a new data sharing partnership which is designed to improve winter service delivery and asset management planning.

Designed to transform the winter industry for local authorities and contractors, councils will now be able to access direct, aggregated data on the road user experience to support their winter strategies, giving them valuable additional intelligence to keep their roads safe.

Mark Dutton, Managing Director at Safecote, said: “Our collaboration with Gaist provides a completely new offering to the winter maintenance industry – fresh data on demand that will deliver a step change in the way we provide winter service. This is the way forward to enable even more successful winter planning and live monitoring.  We are excited to be a part of this project with industry-leading partners Gaist.”
