EnviroVent cuts annual fuel costs by £36,000 with TomTom Telematics

EnviroVent is making annual fuel savings of £36,000 across its fleet of 45 vans by using TomTom Telematics technology to improve driver behaviour.

The ventilation product manufacturer is using OptiDrive 360, which scores drivers based on a range of key performance indicators including speeding, driving events, idling and gear shifting and constant speed.

All performance data is made available to managers and drivers in Web Fleet, the fleet management software from TomTom Telematics, with direct feedback and driving advice offered to drivers via their in-vehicle driver terminals.

EnviroVent is also using Web Fleet to improve customer response times by allocating jobs to its engineers and installers and routing them to customers more quickly and efficiently.

The system has seen drivers reduce fuel consumption by 10%, resulting in an annual saving of £36,000. 

Jane McLean, fleet manager at EnviroVent, said: “Empowering our drivers with advice and feedback on how to drive more safely and fuel-efficiently led to immediate fuel saving and by introducing a programme to incentivise further improvements we expect to realise even greater benefits over the coming months.

“Our van drivers receive monthly performance reports and have already become quite competitive. We now plan to award prizes to the best performing regional teams to cut fuel consumption further, reduce vehicle maintenance costs and improve our carbon footprint, in line with our commitment to sustainability.”
