Anglian Water has announced the implementation of Jaama’s Key2 management software.
The Huntingdon-based company will use the system to deliver administration efficiencies across it’s large fleet.
Once fully introduced by early spring 2018, Key2 is expected to aid improved utilisation of the fleet and enable fleet department employees to make more informed decisions, thus delivering financial savings across the operation.
Introduction of Key2 will see the paper-based reporting at Anglia Water transformed into paperless online reports.
Anglian Water’s as head of fleet services Stewart Lightbody said: “Management of vehicles, plant and drivers is spread across numerous applications, databases and spread sheets with no integration to allow a joined-up view.
“Key2 will allow all information and data to be accessible in one location enabling the system to manage vehicles, plant, drivers and workshops and the relationship between them.
It will enable vehicle and driver performance history to be managed and additional information, such as from telematics and fuel cards, to be used more effectively to deliver efficiencies.
“I am excited about the future because Key2 will be a game-changer for the fleet department and Anglian Water in the way we currently operate and the efficiencies and ultimately financial savings that will be delivered.
“Administratively Key2 will maximise fleet department resource, analyse outcomes and enable us to understand what excellent fleet performance looks like and how we can make it even better.”
Lightbody leads a 29-strong fleet team - 23 of which are employed in workshops - and Jaama won the software system deal after beating off competition in a competitive tender.
He said: “I stayed out of the tender process because I had experience and knowledge of Key2.
"I wanted Anglian Water’s fleet and IT teams to see what was available in the market based on our requirements. It was vital that the fleet team had a strong influence on the decision because it is they who will be using Key2 day-in and day-out.”
“Key2 was selected because of the functionality available and the Jaama team’s knowledge about the product. They knew their system and whatever questions were thrown at them by us they had answers; that was not true for all suppliers shortlisted. Jaama’s presentation gave the fleet team enormous comfort that it was the right system for Anglian Water and that it was a company that we could do business with.”
