UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK STRIKES DEAL WITH TELETRAC NAVMAN TO ENHANCE FLEET VISIBILITY
Teletrac Navman, a global market leader in telematics technology, has secured a contract with The University of Warwick, to provide its market-leading fleet management solutions, which allows for tracking its 130 strong fleet of vehicles.
Milton Keynes, March 11 2021 - The University of Warwick is one of the UK’s leading research institutions, with over 27,000 students. Its main campus, on the border of the city of Coventry and the county of Warwickshire, stretches 1.5 miles end-to-end, requiring the continuous transportation of materials and personnel and more than 500 drivers are tasked with utilising a diverse fleet of panel vans, tipper trucks, utility vehicles and agricultural machinery, to keep the operations and campus services running smoothly.
The university, which has not previously embraced telematics, other than in its research programmes, implemented Teletrac Navman’s end-to-end mobile asset and fleet management solutions to gain increased visibility and real-time actionable insight to streamline operations. Vehicle location and utilisation, driver safety, and compliance and fuel management were the key priorities and Teletrac Navman has created custom reports to monitor each area.
The solution also includes Driver ID, allows the university’s drivers to present a PIN to operate authorised vehicles on campus, thus ensuring the prevention of misuse and enhancing safety and security.
Beyond the technology, Teletrac Navman’s Customer Success (CS) team has been working closely with the university to understand the key performance indicators it’s looking to improve through the adoption of Teletrac Navman’s solution. The CS team has since provided expert consultancy to guide the transport team through every stage, from planning and installation to training and ongoing proactive support calls, enabling the university to establish a strong ROI and best use of all the available tools.
Graham Hine, Senior Transport Services Manager at The University of Warwick, commented: “This marks a significant milestone for the university’s transport operations, as for the first time we have a sophisticated system to provide us with the visibility and data to inform our decision making and future fleet strategy.”
“Teletrac Navman’s expertise in digital transformation has been invaluable to us; we believe their solutions will play a pivotal role in keeping everyone on the campus and the wider community safe. It will also help to maximise vehicle utilisation and productivity, reduce fleet costs, and support our sustainability strategy alongside our climate emergency programme, by providing and analysing real-time carbon emissions data for our transport operations.”
Richard Lilwall, Vice President and Managing Director at Teletrac Navman UK added: “The University of Warwick is an institution that is known for attaining the highest standards, not just in an academic sense, but also in the services it provides for students and staff across campus. Supporting organisations like this is what drives our product innovation and customer service offering and we’re pleased our solution is already paying dividends for the University.
