Tailored fleet management solution to deliver wealth of returns for Cirrus
The social housing telecare, fire safety and security maintenance specialist has a workforce of more than 90 mobile engineers across the country. Working with TomTom reseller One Track UK Ltd Cirrus has invested in a bespoke fleet management system, combining vehicle tracking, driver feedback and fuel monitoring.
By monitoring speed and driver behaviour, Cirrus is aiming to promote a safer, more efficient driving style among employees. As a result, the company aims to benefit from reduced fuel bills, lower insurance premiums and reduced maintenance on vehicles.
‘Due to the size of our mobile workforce, Cirrus wants to ensure the health, safety and welfare of those who need to drive company vehicles as part of their job,’ said Steve Russell, head of Cirrus. ‘Through an investment in fleet management technology we can help mitigate risk and improve driving behaviour.
‘By reducing our carbon footprint and servicing costs at the same time as improving productivity and service standards, our fleet operations can provide solid foundations for future business growth, reducing operating costs which in turn makes us even more competitive.’
The system will also help Cirrus to improve customer service through more efficient despatch and workflow management processes and will aid with tax compliance by keeping robust records of business and private mileage. Each device is fitted with a hardwired privacy switch to indicate business or private use, while drivers are allocated login details which allow them to manage logbook and trip data in the WEBFLEET fleet management software.
Giles Margerison, sales director at TomTom Business Solutions, commented: ‘The bespoke nature of advanced fleet management systems means they can be tailored to deliver a wealth of returns, from reduced fuel costs and greater efficiency to better safety and an improved risk profile.’
