New vehicle telematics framework agreement goes live
Crown Commercial Service has gone live with a new vehicle telematics framework agreement to help the public sector improve the safety and efficiency of its fleet operations.
Running for the next four years, the RM6143 framework replaces the previous RM3754 vehicle telematics commercial arrangement and is available to central government organisations as well as the wider public sector including local authorities, NHS and emergency services.
The agreement offers products and services to enable fleets to capture and analyse vehicle data, such as fuel consumption, vehicle tracking and driver behaviour. This data can be used to identify safety improvements and cost reductions based on the whole-life cost of vehicles as well as supporting evidence-based decision making.
Two Lots are included within the framework. Lot 1 covers the supply of vehicle telematics hardware, software and associated products, available for lease, hire or purchase. This includes products such as cameras and tracking solutions for equipment fixed or stored within a vehicle. The 15 suppliers listed include Airmax and Trakm8.
Lot 2 covers the supply of fleet data analysis and risk management solutions that enable operators to analyse data from multiple sources to support their fleet, optimise whole-life costs and undertake effective risk management activities. TMC and The Floow are among the 10 firms gaining supplier status.
Paul Hollick, MD at TMC, said: “We hope to use this opportunity to help organisations analyse data streams from all their supplier portfolio. This will help the public sector support their whole vehicle operation, optimise whole-life costs and generate effective risk management activities.
“In summary, with this data, fleet managers can shape and deploy their strategies to optimise their fleet and significantly reduce their costs.”
