August 2017: NEW PROJECT: Middle East

We are excited to announce that following our successful co-operation with other projects in the Gulf, AMX Solutions will work in partnership with Aurecon to deliver a project for The State of Qatar, through The Public Works Authority (referred to as Ashghal).

The project involves implementation of a Bridge Management System (BMS) that can respond to the growing operational and management needs of the State’s road transportation network. At the same time restructuring its operational processes to align with best international asset management practices.

The scope of works for the BMS system covers a broad range of business requirements, technical requirements, inspection training, system training and seamless integration with other systems already in use by the Authority such as Maximo and GIS.


June 2017:Pay & Display Parking Meters
at City of Cardiff Council

The City Operations Team at City of Cardiff Council recently adapted their AMX system to include inventory, fault monitoring and maintenance for all their Pay & Display meters across the City.

Matt Harrison of the Civil Enforcement Team says: "We are using it to record the pay and display meters across the city and to log any faults which occur, our staff who go out to repair any faults use the Mobile app on their tablet to record the fault details.

"AMX has improved our record-keeping for the pay and display meters and being able to keep the details up-to-date easily. It has also improved our record-keeping for the faults which occur, as previous records were on paper, it was tedious to find any queries which may arise. Now it is simple to look-up a variety of fields to resolve any queries quickly. We require this because if someone based their appeal against a parking fine because of a fault with a machine, we now have clear and easy to access records. This has also resolved illegible handwriting.

"The best thing about AMX is that it can all be recorded in one place and can run reports easily and it has been customised to what we require. We are looking at expanding and recording enforcement signage."


April 2017: Digital Evolution of BMS in Gulf

At the recent Austroads Conference in Melbourne, our MD Saeid contributed towards a paper written in conjunction with Civil Engineering consultants Aurecon. The paper was titled "Digital Evolution of BMS (Bridge Management System) in the Gulf". The content of the paper discusses the various developments in technology and how it can be applied to Bridge Maintenance and Planning in a fast growing region such as the United Arab Emirates. The joint effort is a direct result of Aurecon implementing Asset Management Expert as its main BMS across Dubai and other gulf transport authorities. You can read the paper here:


December 2016: Review of 2016

What a busy year we've had here at AMX. With our expansion into new sectors including Incidents, Flood and Street Lighting and our travel across the world we've certainly seen some sights. As well as the team working hard at HQ to help bring users up to date, customise functionality and develop options for different platforms - next year is set to see further growth with our existing and new users - we can't wait. We thought we'd share a few of this years highlights with you all. Wishing you a merry christmas and every success for 2017.


August 2016: Street Furniture inventory data collection with AMX Mobile

AMX for Android on tablets is now being used by City of Cardiff highways team to update their existing inventory of street furniture. They're starting with the area’s many Bus Stops.

Options available within the app are:

• to create/update a unique asset record

• add photographs

• pinpoint the GPS location which corresponds with the street gazetteer

• if applicable record the condition of the furniture – which could then relate back into the systems maintenance planning schedule.

By using the application on a mobile device the Cardiff team have increased their productivity and reduced paperwork and linking everything to the main database.

April 2016: Welsh Growth

AMX Solutions, was a hive of activity in March, securing new contracts and further developing the collaborative approach to Asset Management seen across a number of our welsh customers. AMX is now being use for Flood Risk Asset Management by Vale of Glamorgan and Gwynedd Council and we’re proud to work with almost all of the Welsh Councils to support the preservation of their beautiful surroundings and help keep everything operational, especially in temperamental weather!

In addition, we are looking forward to developing a partnership with the Welsh Government who, after reviewing various proposals from their consultants Amey, appointed AMX as the asset management system for a number of road tunnels in North Wales.

October 2015: Natural Resources Wales - go live with AMX

September 2015: Walsh Infrastructure implements AMX for Pennsylvania Bridges contract

PennDOT identified a need to replace and maintain 558 bridges across the state and initiated the Pennsylvania Rapid Bridge Replacement Project (RBR). They awarded the contract for design, construction and upkeep to Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners. Walsh Infrastructure Management (WIM) are the maintenance provider within the consortium and are responsible for all bridge inspections, bridge washing activities, maintenance and rehabilitation as part of this 25 year contract. After extensive research and comparison, and following a successful tender, WIM appointed Asset Management Expert (AMX) as the software provider for their ongoing Bridge Maintenance programme across all 558 bridges.

We’re excited to announce that in August 2015 the system went live with the first bridge being managed within AMX, and will continue to be implemented for all bridges, the last one being due for handover in December 2017. Two key features of the system for this project are 1) the Web Application which allows all the people involved in the project, and the client PennDOT, to log-in, view and update data; and 2) mobile application allowing data collection on site in remote/rural areas where internet connection may not be available.

Randy Morgan of WIM says “As an Asset Management firm, Walsh Infrastructure Management is responsible for multiple asset management contracts with a wide variety of asset owners. Owner-specific requirements have always forced compromises with “one size fits all” applications. The flexibility of AMX to use one common system while managing a wide range of asset types and presenting different data views and reports specifically tailored to each individual contract is a significant benefit. By configuring data entry forms and reports to simplify the work for our field personnel while matching the specific requirements of the contract enhances the quality of our results and improves our efficiency. Monthly reports that used to take days to compile and validate can now be completed and “owner ready” within a couple of hours.”

AMX MD Saeid Naelini says “We are looking forward to developing our relationship with the WIM team and implementing AMX across more states in the US. Its great to work with a large, reputable engineering contractor who brings a wealth of experience in this sector and provides us with a good opportunity to learn from the diverse challenges faced across the US and give us scope to consistently improve AMX functionality to deliver results across the globe.”


July 2015: AMX and Consultant Engineers

AMX are often approached to tender for large scale projects that are managed by Consultant Engineering companies such as Aurecon and Mott MacDonald. Take a look at our datasheet which explains more about why engineering firms such as these choose AMX for their Bridge Maintenance Management System (BMMS).

March 2015: AMX in Malyasia

After an initial online demo and successful technical meeting in Malaysia, we’re very excited to be working with Gamlite IT providing the integrated asset management system for The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge or Penang Second Bridge. This is a 24km dual carriageway toll bridge in Penang, Malaysia that connects Bandar Cassia in Seberang Perai on mainland Peninsular Malaysia with Batu Maung on Penang Island.

AMX will be the central management system used for the preventative maintenance programme and as a decision support tool for the term of the project. Assets being managed include over 16.9km of marine viaducts and cable stayed bridge, 7km of land expressway, Mechanical & Electrical components such as street lighting and cables, landscape and building management.

This is the perfect project for AMX, demonstrating its expanding capabilities beyond individual structures to include the full scope of infrastructure projects and taking advantage of AMX mobile for increased efficiency.

Full details of the project will be available in a case study shortly. To request your copy when its available please email helen.lake@amxsolutions.co.uk.

November 2014: AMX Selected for Natural Resources Wales

After a lengthy and comprehensive tender process, we were extremely pleased in November when AMX was formally selected by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) as their Flood and Coastal Risk Asset Management System.

NRW took over the functions of the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW), Environment Agency Wales (EAW) and Forestry Commission Wales (FCW), as well as some functions of Welsh Government on 1 April 2013. AMX will be used to manage over 50,000 vital assets, including all Flood Risk, Hydrometry & Telemetry and Mechanical & Electrical assets for both inspections and maintenance.

October 2014: Isle of Man Upgrade Latest

Following a recent visit to our customer over in the Isle of Man, a big focus this week has been on the upgrade of their existing BMX software to AMX. The Isle of Man has a very unique set of parameters given that it is a self-governing British Crown dependency. Aside from the usual bridges and highways management options, AMX can also be used for other facilities and utilities on the island such as Control Systems, Ports, Linear Assets, Parks and Buildings. We're looking forward to helping the team get up to speed and implement usage across the whole of the island's government owned and managed assets.
