Telematics innovation set to boost efficiency at Yorkshire business

Car parts distributor Andrew Page is using Masternaut’s fleet management solution to monitor, manage and improve driver behaviour, create a more efficient fleet and provide environmental cost savings.

Fleet managers at Andrew Page will now have access to next-generation telematics platform Masternaut Connect, particularly the eco-Drive and Live modules – all with the aim of improving vehicle efficiency and productivity.

From a HR perspective, fleet managers will be able to monitor driver behaviour in order to provide feedback on driving habits, in line with Masternaut best practise guidelines.

By monitoring and benchmarking driver behaviour, fleet managers can educate and improve driver performance, helping to create a safer and more efficient mobile workforce, says Masternaut.

Logistically, fleet managers will have real-time and in depth visibility of their entire fleet of vans. This will ensure that coordination challenges can be minimised, reducing fuel costs.

Andrew Page decided to take on Masternaut’s solution full time following a successful trial period in Birmingham, which delivered a 7.1% improvement in mpg and a 47% reduction in harsh events.

Mark Saunders, chief operating officer at Andrew Page, said: “This is a major step for us in safeguarding the future of our business and we’re delighted to be working closely with another well respected local firm, Masternaut.”

He continued: “We pride ourselves on supplying the very best service to our customers and value the high standards we work to.

“Masternaut has demonstrated that its solution is capable of helping us to further this, by giving us detailed and up to the minute views of our driver locations, whilst also helping us to make vital cost savings.”
