EnviroVent is making annual fuel savings of £36,000 by cutting fuel consumption by 10 per cent using TomTom Telematics technology to improve fleet driver behaviour.
The ventilation product manufacturer is using OptiDrive 360, the driver behaviour improvement system fromTomTom Telematics, to establish a performance improvement initiative across its nationwide fleet of 45 vans.
‘Empowering our drivers with advice and feedback on how to drive more safely and fuel-efficiently led to immediate fuel saving and by introducing a programme to incentivise further improvements we expect to realise even greater benefits over the coming months,’ said Jane McLean, Fleet Manager, EnviroVent.
‘Our van drivers receive monthly performance reports and have already become quite competitive. We now plan to award prizes to the best performing regional teams to cut fuel consumption further, reduce vehicle maintenance costs and improve our carbon footprint, in line with our commitment to sustainability.’
OptiDrive 360 scores drivers based on a range of key performance indicators including speeding, driving events, idling and gear shifting and constant speed. All performance data is made available to managers and drivers in WEBFLEET, the fleet management software from TomTom Telematics, with direct feedback and driving advice offered to drivers via their in-vehicle driver terminals.
EnviroVent is also using WEBFLEET to improve customer response times by allocating jobs to its engineers and installers and routing them to customers more quickly and efficiently.
