Hotel Media invests in TRACKER Fleet to improve emissions and safety

The company, which helps hotels and communal residences across the UK maximise the value of TV and Video on Demand, is using the telematics technology to monitor the driving style of its engineers.

TRACKER’s Driving Style module creates a unique driver score per vehicle, based on acceleration, braking, cornering, driver speed and idling, and maps historical trends, allowing managers to recognise and reward improvement or offer driver training, as appropriate. The company will also receive maintenance alerts, reminding it to check the condition of its vehicles. 

Gary Yeames-Smith, director at Hotel Media, said: ‘Our main reason for using TRACKER Fleet is to cut down on emissions and improve driver safety. We reaped the benefits after the very first week when we saw a dramatic improvement in the speed drivers were going.’

The company will also use this feature to help further provide comprehensive and time-efficient services to its nationwide customer base.

Yeames-Smith added: ‘If a customer enquires when their delivery will arrive, we can check where our drivers are and calculate how long it will take for their delivery to reach them, helping to successfully manage customer expectations.’

Stephen Doran, managing director of TRACKER, concluded: ‘Hotel Media demonstrates just how small fleets benefit from investing in a telematics solution. Driver safety and cutting down on CO2 emissions is crucial for most companies, Driving Style is a great solution, irrespective of the size of fleet being monitored.’
