Pivotal invests in Trakm8 telematics for van fleet

Cash management specialist Pivotal has installed Trakm8’s RH600 Telematics Integrated Camera across its 130-strong fleet of vans.

The business, which has a network of seven depots across the UK and Ireland, is investing in driver technology as it grows its footprint in the two countries.

The roll-out of Trakm8 technology across the Pivotal fleet follows a successful trial of the solution at its Birmingham depot. The pilot scheme of the RH600, with vehicle connected data, helped Pivotal make significant savings on both mileage and labour across its fleet, with the solution’s optimisation function – an intuitive route planning algorithm – helping the depot reduce fuel spend by 15%.­

Rónán Harper, CEO at Pivotal, said: “It’s no understatement to say that our fleet is the lifeblood of our business, so ensuring our drivers have all the support they need to work as safely and efficiently as possible is absolutely paramount to our wider success.

“I’d long been aware of the impact vehicle technology could have on fleet operations, but knew how important it was to invest in a solution that was the best fit for Pivotal. I knew whatever system we chose would need to go beyond just telematics; it would have to sit at the heart of a wholesale cultural change for our business.

“With Trakm8, we’ve found something that delivers just that. As demonstrated in the trial at our Birmingham branch, the RH600 doesn’t just deliver excellent return on investment – it ensures buy-in from our drivers too.”

Pivotal is launching a driver leaderboard, linked to its internal rewards programme, to encourage driver engagement with the new system.

The Trakm8 RH600 offers a wide range of features to deliver in-depth telematics information and in-cab camera.
