Civil engineering, utility and construction company Peter Duffy is adopting a telematics solution from Ctrack across more than 160 vehicles within its fleet.
The company is using the web-based Ctrack Online tracking system to better monitor and control a mix of cars, vans, HGVs and specialist vehicles in order to make operational cost savings and improve road safety.
Ctrack Online is replacing an ageing tracking solution that no longer met the needs of the company in terms of functionality and availability. Peter Duffy is now able to provide controlled access and effectively export data to both internal teams and customers, allowing it to make best use of the system. This is helping them to streamline business processes and achieve measurable operational improvements.
The company is already using the tracking tool’s sophisticated reporting package to schedule regular reports on a wide range of operational and driving parameters. They monitor fleet performance and identify areas of improvement - in particular unauthorised out-of-hours usage, excess idling and speeding. As a result, the company is able to engage with employees to encourage improved driver behaviour and ensure vehicles are operated within its strict business and Duty of Care guidelines.
Neil Duffy, plant and fleet services director at Peter Duffy said: “Ctrack Online is already contributing to business and operational improvements, particularly our fleet of vehicles that works within the utilities sector. As the system becomes embedded within our internal processes and procedures, we expect it to become an increasingly important tool that will help us achieve significant cost savings, health and safety improvements and reductions in carbon emissions.”
John Wisdom, managing director of Ctrack said: “Ctrack is the leading provider of vehicle tracking solutions to the utilities marketplace. This is because our systems deliver real advantage by enabling fleets of all sizes to address business critical performance issues as a result of greater operational visibility, control and efficiency. This is helping our customers to overcome some of the most common and difficult challenges they face in terms of fleet efficiency, productivity and Duty of Care.”
