Teletrac Navman has secured a contract with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to provide its fleet management software, to track its 650-strong fleet.
The local authority will be using Teletrac Navman’s platform to enable access to real-time data, such as vehicle location, driver performance, idling time and fuel usage.
Driver ID, an additional feature included in the deal, allows the council’s 1,100 drivers to present either a PIN number or key fob to operate a vehicle, as they are not permanently assigned to a single employee, to help prevent misuse and increasing security.
Ivan McMaster, service manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “In the past, due to operating a large scale fleet, we’ve found it challenging to manage multiple data sources and use the insights to our advantage, in order to manage our resource effectively, optimise asset utilisation and ensure overall safety.
“We have managed to find a partner in Teletrac Navman, whose team have been extremely professional, providing dedicated consultation at the point of procurement, before getting under the skin of our outfit to deliver the solutions necessary to operate as best we can.”
Last Riding of Yorkshire Council provides government services, including the transportation of materials and personnel.
Richard Lilwall, vice president and managing director at Teletrac Navman UK, said: “As with most public sector fleet operations, the priority is the safety of its people and the public when delivering essential services within the community.
“When its telematics contract was up for renewal, enhancing compliance and safety was paramount and our solutions are tried and tested to deliver on all counts.”
