‘Having the tools in place to promote a safer driving style among our van and car drivers has led to a much-improved fleet risk profile, a 15 per cent reduction in insurance premiums thanks to reduced claims, and a welcome fillip to our employee duty of care,’ said Graham Short, Fleet Manager, Zip Water UK.
‘Furthermore, we have seen a demonstrable improvement in fleet mpg, along with a sizeable reduction in our vehicle maintenance bills, including tyres and brake wear.’
This technology also means that Zip Water drivers are now also using the WEBFLEET Logbook app on their smartphones to keep accurate journey logs, rather than having to complete manual mileage sheets at the end of each day.
The drivers simply validate their journey information and select whether the trips they have made are for business or private purposes.
Short added: “The value and efficiency gains that the telematics system has delivered to our business have been considerable. These have been recognised across our entire workforce – from the field to the back office.”
This live customer experience demonstrates that significant savings are to be had for the smart Fleet Manager looking to achieve positive ROI.
“It’s just one more example of why we encourage Transport Operators and those running any kind of commercial fleet to get smart, get FLEETSense” says Tom Dickerson, MD
“We’ve proven, time and again, that current technology can save time, reduce risks and add profits on the bottom line. That’s what our customers want and as a business owner I know why that’s important to them”.
