Scott Yates

Chief Operating Officer

Scott has always had a fascination with processes and systems. In school, he studied Industrial Technology, a cross between engineering and business, earning his bachelors and masters degree in this discipline. After graduation, Scott went to work from Amgen as a Business Analyst in the IT department supporting Enterprise Asset Management. In this role, Scott saw the opportunities that existed for companies to leverage technology to improve Asset and Facilities Management and joined the EDI team to do just that. Over the past 15 years, Scott has helped EDI develop a consulting service line that focus on process, people, and data to ensure the success of technology implementation projects.

Serving as the Chief Operating Officer at EDI, Scott is responsible for leading and directing activities for the firm’s Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS), and Customer Care service lines. He also manages and contributes to projects in EDI’s strategic growth areas including Internet of Things (IoT) and GeoSpatial integration (BIM and GIS.)

EDI’s clients benefit from the value Scott adds to his projects by leveraging his annoyance with inefficient processes to develop solutions that allow business to focus on value adding activities. Scott understands that the most critical success factor for any enterprise-level program is adoption by the people charged with carrying it out and that one of the most effective means for organizational change management is providing simple processes and solutions.

Scott and his wife are avid “foodies” and typically plan their vacations around this hobby. The first trip plans to be made are restaurant reservations and then everything else is scheduled around that. He also never misses an episode of Top Chef.
