The Algorithm People partners with Elmtronics to bring EV savings for fleets
The Algorithm People and Elmtronics have partnered to offer fleets an end-to-end solution; from fleet analysis and electrification through to infrastructure and optimisation.
The Algorithm People – EV optimisation specialists – and Elmtronics – the UK’s largest EV charge point installer – have partnered to provide a new way for vehicle operators to reduce costs and cut carbon emissions.
Colin Ferguson, CEO of The Algorithm People, said: “By working together, we can provide our clients accurate, expert advice on the electrification process. This includes planning which vehicles EVs can replace, as well as optimising the deployment and use of EVs and their charging infrastructure.”
The Algorithm People provide data-based analysis of a company’s vehicle operations, enabling them to pinpoint which vehicles and routes are best suited to electrification. Their software also optimises the use of EVs once they are deployed, helping customers to achieve the best possible return on investment.
Elmtronics provides EV charging infrastructure to some of the largest private and public sector organisations in the UK. Its solutions include load-balancing for charging multiple vehicles at the same time, along with user-friendly dashboards and management reports.
Dan Martin, CEO of Elmtronics, said: “Accurate data analytics from The Algorithm People really helps to build the business case for adoption of EVs. It also provides further assurance that the charging infrastructure we provide is perfectly tailored to meet each client’s operational needs.”
Furthermore, the agreement will enable Elmtronics to offer its customers a way to reduce costs and carbon emissions from their diesel and petrol-powered vehicles. Developed by The Algorithm People and sat nav specialist Sygic, My Transport Planner is a web-based pay-as-you-go vehicle planning tool, which the company says is ideal for operations where vehicles visit multiple sites per shift. By optimising route planning and vehicle utilisation, The Algorithm people say My Transport Planner can cut total fleet mileage by up to 20%, translating into savings on fuel costs and emissions.
“Deploying My Transport Planner is the first step towards creating a decarbonisation road map,” said Colin Ferguson. “It generates substantial savings which can then be reinvested in EVs, creating a virtuous cycle of reductions in emissions and overheads.”
