ALD gains recognition for telematics technology at "Fleet Hero Awards"
The Fleet Heroes Awards, run by the Energy Savings Trust and supported by the Guardian Newspaper and the CBI, recognise innovation in the sustainable management of vehicle fleets.
With increasing demands placed on businesses to control their fleet costs, reduce risk and CO2 emissions, ProFleet2, which was first developed by ALD Automotive in 2004, confronts those issues by using a vehicle-data service that utilises telematics to record vehicle and journey data. Authorised parties such as a business’s fleet manager can then remotely access this data.
Commenting on the award, Keith Allen, managing director of ALD Automotive UK, said: 'We are delighted to have received the award for our ProFleet2 service. Over the past seven years the technology has continually evolved, delivering unparalleled functionality that enables businesses to better manage the costs and risk associated with their fleet.'
In recognition of ALD Automotive’s award, Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, commented: 'Congratulations to ALD Automotive in being Highly Commended for the Energy Saving Trust Fleet Hero Award for Innovation Services and Systems.
'The Fleet Hero Awards highlights those who have not only taken steps to help the environment but also to save money and resources. This is a great example for others to follow.'
