Speedy Asset Services has adopted VisionTrack video telematics technology on all its new vehicles.
As part of the company’s commitment to road safety and fleet risk reduction, it has installed VisionTrack’s VT2000 connected forward-facing camera on a further 50 recently acquired vans.
Speedy Asset Services’ road risk manager Gareth Jones said: “We have taken the decision to make video telematics part of our fleet replacement programme, with all new vehicles to be fitted with VisionTrack’s industry-leading road safety technology.
“The connected vehicle cameras will help target further improvements as part of our award-winning fleet safety strategy that has already reduced road collisions by 37 per cent, while also enabling us to avoid unnecessary insurance costs.”
The latest roll-out follows the successful adoption of a connected multi-camera DVR system on a fleet of HGVs. The solution has provided all around visibility of the vehicle and shares all captured information with VisionTrack’s cloud-based IoT platform.
Speedy Asset Services had previously used a competitor SD-card vehicle camera solution within its fleet operation, but the devices required video to be manually downloaded before it could be viewed.
In contrast, the video telematics system provides real-time alerts in the event of a collision and access to footage, so Speedy Asset Services can immediately check on the welfare of the driver and prove liability in less than 30 minutes.
VisionTrack’s managing director Simon Marsh said: “We combine the most advanced and reliable technology with first-class service and support to provide solutions that deliver true value.
"With a growing number of fleet and transport operations seeking innovative ways of protecting vehicles, drivers and brand reputation, we are now partner of choice for connected vehicle cameras and video telematics.”
