We say it every year but where have the last 12 months gone? With just days left before Christmas we’ve been looking back over 2018 and some of the fantastic things we’ve been involved in here at MVIS.
A pioneering product
2018 was the year we launched the new BartcoLive™ app to further improve the efficiency of our VMS ITS solutions, offering more options for traffic managers to update messages on their VMS units remotely via any internet enabled device.

Getting out and about
In November we attended Highways UK, where we exhibited our traffic management systems and solutions, made some interesting new contacts and discussed advancements in the planning, designing, building, operating and future-proofing of the UK’s road network.
The real apprentices
Forget Alan Sugar, at MVIS, we’ve long known that hiring apprentices is the best way to secure the skills we need for the future. So we were delighted when our apprenticeship scheme and our apprentices were shortlisted at the Learning Unlimited Awards, with apprentice Tillie Wooliscroft winning the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year award on the night.
2018 also saw the promotion of Dom Bridge (who started with us as an apprentice in 2013), to the role of Assistant Operations Manager. Since his first day, Dom got ‘stuck in’ and quickly became an integral part of the team. Congratulations Dom – you deserve it!
At MVIS, we don’t just develop our own talent, we support local sports clubs and teams where we can and this year we’ve agreed sponsorship deals with Matlock Town football team, the home jersey for the Liverpool Raptors (Merseyside’s newest American Football team) and continued our sponsorship of the local and super talented CP32 kickboxing champion Karl Johnston.
Investing in our community
As well as giving financial support to a range of local charities including the Star Trust Charity and the Save our Beds project, in support of Whitworth Hospital, we’ve also given our time to support community events including the Movies in the Park evenings organised by Mazzi Curry House and The Sparkle Walk, for Markovitz, in aid of Ashgate Hospice.
And they’re just a few of the highlights that spring to mind. There are many more…
