87% of business drivers would implement telematics to reduce fuel bill
With increasing demands placed on businesses to control their fleet costs, reduce risk and CO2 emissions, ALD Automotive’s ProFleet2 solution, which was launched in 2004, confronts those issues by using telematics to record vehicle and journey data.
With driver consent, authorised parties such as a fleet manager can then remotely access this data and advise the driver on how best to improve their driving style. These changes, if implemented, can have a positive impact on driver behaviour, fuel consumption and help reduce costs.
Commenting on the survey results, Keith Allen, managing director of ALD Automotive UK, said: ‘Over the past seven years, telematics technology has evolved hugely, delivering a wide range of functionality that can help businesses to better manage the costs and risk associated with their fleet.
‘At the same time business drivers have also become far more positive about the use of telematics, recognising the benefits it can deliver to themselves as well as their employers,’ he added.
This Key finding report is based on the results from the ALD Automotive telematics survey. Fieldwork was undertaken in 2012. The sample was comprised of 500 UK business drivers.
