TELETRAC NAVMAN DELIVERS TELEMATICS DEAL WITH APPLEBY WESTWARD
At the forefront of commercial telematics technology for more than 25 years, Teletrac Navman has won a sole supply deal with Appleby Westward Group Limited, the regional distribution centre for the convenience store group, Spar
Milton Keynes, March 22, 2018 – The South West-based wholesaler, who has not previously embraced telematics, has installed Teletrac Navman’s award-winning tracking and fleet management solutions across its entire fleet, which consists of 14 HGVs and 30 passenger cars. The business signed a three-year contract, having realised the benefits of adopting Teletrac Navman’s suite of solutions following a six-month trial.
Equipped to achieve greater efficiency across their fleet and a higher level of reporting, each HGV will deploy an integrated dash cam, allowing the business to access video footage and accurately identify liability of fault in the event of a road accident, thus helping to reduce insurance premiums. In addition to the vehicles tachograph, which is used to monitor driver hours and simplify compliance, the M-NAV fleet tracking and management solution have also been installed. Appleby Westward’s fleet of cars will also contain dash cams as well as privacy buttons, with the latter distinguishing between business and private mileage.
The deal also comprises an unlimited aftercare package, including training so all fleet managers and drivers have a thorough understanding of how the system works and how best to put it to use to maximise results.
Peter Millichap, UK Marketing Director at Teletrac Navman, commented: “In an industry where operating margins can be tight, we know how important it is for our customers to streamline efficiencies where possible, particularly for businesses involved in the distribution of food and drink. With this in mind, we’re really confident we’ve provided Appleby Westward with the perfect suite of solutions to meet their needs.”
Rob Chapman-Brookes, Transport Manager at Appleby Westward, commented:
“When seeking our telematics provider, we took into consideration those areas which most affected our business, including tailored solutions to meet our needs, aftercare service and financial return – Teletrac Navman ticked all the boxes.
Given that before adopting Teletrac Navman’s technology we relied solely on manual timesheets, the deployment of industry-leading solutions will prevent us from falling behind the curve and give us the visibility we need to make effective improvements quickly. We are also hoping to free up valuable resource by removing manual processes and ensure greater integration across our fleet.”
