Atkins Becomes Deighton Certified Consultant for the UK
by David Wightman, Atkins Global & Alain Hueppi, Viagroup

The Atkins Highway Asset Management Group (HAMG) is currently developing its dTIMS CT consultancy offering. Atkins is the UK's largest engineering and design consultancy and the world's 11th largest design firm. The Highway Asset Management Group is part of Atkins Highways and Transportation (H&T) business, and works closely with a number of trunk road and local authority clients both in the UK and overseas.

Before opting for dTIMS CT, the Atkins team considered a number of alternative products. Ultimately, they chose dTIMS as they concluded that it was best able to deliver the requirements of their client-base. Aspects of dTIMS CT that led to this conclusion were its proven track record, its range of application, and its flexibility. Another important factor in this decision was the high-level of support provided both by the European distributor (Viagroup) and by Deighton themselves. Atkins are currently trialing dTIMS-based solutions with a number of clients. The feedback from these clients thus far is extremely positive, and further developments are planned.

After several Atkins team members participated in various training and workshops throughout last year and after having put a lot of energy and resources into learning the system, Atkins and Viagroup have signed a Certified Consulting Agreement for the UK on Dec. 9th 2010. Viagroup is very proud to add such a high level consulting group to our growing network of dTIMS experts throughout Europe.

Deighton at TRB in Washington D.C.
by Arif Rafiq, Deighton

The TRB Annual Meeting is the largest annual event in transportation, attracting 10,000 attendees from around the world. Many State DOT representatives attend the meetings and seminars, as do international representatives from other government transportations agencies. This event covers not only transportation infrastructure, but everything related to transportation including air, rail, marine and public transportation. The exhibit floor also reflects the diversity in industries as it encompasses three halls and is quite massive.

Deighton attended this event with three staff members and also unveiled a new trade show booth! In addition to manning the booth, the Deighton team met with clients, prospects and friends, attended committee meetings and seminars and simply reinforced Deighton as a landmark brand amongst the distinguished attendees from academia and public service.
