“Such information helps us increase the efficiency of the journeys taken and build an understanding of the way the vehicles have been driven, from harsh acceleration to harsh braking and speeding, all of which also supports improving health and safety standards for the public and our drivers.”
Since installing Teletrac Navman’s end-to-end fleet management system, alongside its reporting feature and in-cab device, the housing association has:
- Enhanced fleet visibility by 100%
- Reduced speeding events amongst drivers and average accident costs
- Improved verification of customer complaints or queries
- Identified driver training needs
Harris added: “There’s no way we could take these trackers out now; we’d be lost without them! The solution has made things so much more positive and seamless in carrying out day-to-day activities, and due to that, we have had fewer challenging customer situations. The data is there to back everything up, and we can categorically say we’ve achieved the maximum ROI out of the solution.
“Beyond the fleet management platform, we’ve also recently worked with Teletrac Navman to support us on our shift to electric vehicles. As the housing provider for Stockport Council, we have targets to have at least 60% of our fleet fully electric by 2025, to reduce CO2 emissions and become carbon neutral by 2038, in line with Greater Manchester. So, when Teletrac Navman allowed us to put its new EV Readiness Tool to the test, it was an easy decision.
Using the power of AI, the tool analysed our historical telematics data to provide us with a detailed roadmap of adopting electric vehicles into our operation. It was such a valuable exercise, and the results are strong. It showed we’re able to electrify a large proportion of our fleet, and in doing so, prevent CO2 emissions, improve fuel consumption, and make significant cost of ownership savings over five years. It also advised us on how many chargers to install and where. What’s more, the evaluation’s ease was really impressive – it took no time at all. Our journey has only just begun, but Teletrac Navman has put us on the right track.”
