With annual revenues of over £300 million, Telent are a technology services company with decades of experience providing a broad range of network and communications services across a variety of industries. With around 2,000 employees, Telent's field force covers the entire UK.

Telent's Rail Business decided to implement a TomTom Connected solution consisting of a LINK 300 GPS tracking box with 10-second positioning, paired with a GO 7000 navigation device with 2-way messaging and LIVE services including TomTom's unique TomTom Traffic into 91 of their vehicles. This is due to increase to a total of 150 vehicles.

The company has been suitably impressed with the immediate improvements in day to day business, most noticeably the incredible reduction in the time taken to allocate jobs to the right team, which has been reduced by an amazing 80% from 75 minutes to just 15 minutes.

Telent are now beginning a trial of ecoPLUS, which illustrates when and where fuel is wasted, and manages carbon footprint as well as cutting idling time.
