Leading software supplier Jaama has appointed two new senior project managers, Keith Newman and Elaine Pitts as demand for its sophisticated web-based fleet and asset management solutions continue to rise.

Mr Newman and Ms Pitts have joined the operations team responsible for implementing Jaama’s Key2 software and training new and existing customers to maximise system use.

Mr Newman, who spent a year living in the Amazon Rainforest in Guyana teaching GCSE level maths to Amerindian children in a remote village, has a lengthy IT project management career behind him that has seen him most recently employed by iSite where he spent two years managing property system implementations and development for high profile retail clients.

Ms Pitts, who began her career in the diagnostics industry becoming involved in instrumentation and IT, has more than 20 years’ experience in project management of software development and delivery.

In addition to the two new appointments to the operations team, Andy Hickin has been promoted into the team as systems consultant and Chris Sheppard has been promoted to the team as project consultant.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “As organisations across the public and private fleet sectors continue to focus on cost management and vehicle and driver compliance, their requirement for hi-tech software solutions to reduce the administration burden continues to rise.

“As a result, we have increased the strength of our implementation team to meet the ever-rising demand for Key2 that we continue to experience.

“Our customer base continues to grow because businesses want software that moves them forward in a practical manner delivering compliance, operational efficiencies and administrative benefits.”
