AD Bly saves £100,000 with TomTom and FleetCheck

Ad Bly TomTom Telematics

AD Bly has achieved savings of £100,000 after implementing TomTom Telematics Webfleet and FleetCheck.

The Knebworth-based construction firm has combined TomTom Telematics Webfleet and FleetCheck to help boost efficiency across its fleet, with consultancy support from TomTom reseller Auto Electrical Services.

The integration of Webfleet and FleetCheck means service schedules can be managed based on up-to-date information drawn from the vehicle, including odometer readings.

Enabling proactive maintenance work to prevent problems developing

Mileage reporting has reduced the number of miles travelled by around 5,000 over the course of a year.

AD Bly’s fleet manager Adam Gamlin said: “Bringing different data streams together in one place has helped to change the way we work and allow us to gain greater insights into the operation of our fleet.

"As a result, the transport department is better able to support the growth aims of the wider business.”

AD Bly also targeted driver behaviour as an area of focus across its fleet of two HGVs and 169 LCVs. OptiDrive 360 – a key component of Webfleet – provides managers with weekly incident reports, allowing the manger to pinpoint problematic areas.

The drivers themselves receive in-trip feedback and predictive advice, empowering them with the information needed to make positive changes.

Gamlin said: “By unlocking a wealth of data on driving performance, we are now in an even better position to work with our drivers to improve their safety and help the business operate more efficiently.

"Our employees reacted well to the introduction of the technology and improvements to performance happened very quickly.

“Now, we are quickly able to identify the root causes of any performance issues and address these with individual drivers, providing the support, advice and training needed to help them improve.”
