Focus on Risk Management helps Zip Water UK cut fleet insurance costs
Discover how this FLEETSense customer found a way to reduce accidents and fleet insurance costs
Published: August 2018
FLEETSense customer Zip Water UK has revealed how driving performance data has helped the company manage fleet risk and cut annual fleet insurance costs by more than £30,000.
Reducing essential costs on obligatory spending, such as vehicle insurance premiums, is an easy way to reduce wasted profit.
That’s why Zip Water UK trusted FLEETSense to find appropriate and effective solutions to address this. With a mixed vehicle fleet of 120 operating costs are not insignificant and only likely to rise over time.
FLEETSense worked closely with the client to deploy TomTom’s WEBFLEET, a Software-as-a-Service fleet management telematics system.
WEBFLEET and the integral OptiDrive 360 solution scores drivers based on key performance indicators and provides them with real-time feedback and advice.
This solution meant that Zip Water has witnessed a significant reduction in road traffic collisions.
‘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”.
