Who are they?
Vialytics est une scale up, experte dans les smart cities depuis 5 ans, qui révolutionne la gestion des infrastructures routières. Nous contribuons activement à la préservation et à l’entretien des routes en Europe en démocratisant le diagnostic routier. Notre solution sur smartphone, couplée à notre intelligence artificielle, détecte automatiquement les dommages des routes et constitue une base de données complète pour les collectivités
At vialytics, we believe that our roads can be kept in safe condition despite a shortage of skilled workers.
In the advent of smart cities, vialytics, a GovTech scale up, was founded in 2018 with the idea of democratizing road condition assessment for our clients, partner municipalities, with a revolutionary cost and time effective intelligent road management system.
Our software as a service (SaaS) solution supports field agents in their day-to-day work through a simple plug and play approach: a smartphone combined with an artificial intelligence (AI) based software that automatically diagnoses the condition of road infrastructures enabling a data driven planning of effective actions and the management of all maintenance procedures in a single platform.
Today, the software has developed into a multifunctional road management system.
Since the signing of its first client, the city of Schönau, vialytics has grown to include over 300 partner municipalities in 6 countries. Our moonshot is to manage 400,000 kilometers of roadways by 2030.
Founded in Stuttgart, Germany, vialytics has rapidly internationalized to include offices in France and the United-States. As of today, vialytics counts 75 mission driven people who share the company’s founding values:
- We are open-minded. | We are open to new people and ideas.
- We are appreciative. | We take care of each other and share our successes.
- We are up for it. | We are ambitious and move forward together.
In January 2023, vialytics raised $10M in a Series A round of funding enabling us to further develop our intelligent road management system, double the company’s headcount to 120 people in the next two years and accelerate our global expansion.
With over 36,000 municipalities, France represents a high growth potential for vialytics. The company has been present in the French market since 2021 and is currently composed of 11 people in three different functions: Sales, Customer Success, and HR. By the end of the year 2023, we hope to reach a headcount of 18 people.
