Commenting on the appointment Roger Parry, Chairman of Oxford Metrics, said: “I am delighted to welcome David to the Oxford Metrics Board and we look forward to working with him. This appointment further strengthens our non-executive representation – David has substantial experience in senior management roles at a variety of global software companies. That experience will be invaluable to Oxford Metrics as we look to continue to grow our SaaS customer base and expand internationally.”

Yotta continues to broaden its capabilities and market appeal and there is a clear opportunity ahead to change the way nations manage their infrastructure assets. Vicon is a leader in its field and with the launch of IMU-Step – a SaaS product sold on subscription – there is an opportunity to grow its base of recurring revenues.
