Telematics Innovation Set To Boost Efficiency At Leading Yorkshire Business
After a successful trial period, Masternaut’s technology has been selected to help Andrew Page deliver efficiency savings and improve driver behaviour
Leading car parts distributor Andrew Page is using Masternaut’s powerful fleet management solution to effectively monitor, manage and improve driver behaviour, create a more efficient fleet and provide environmental cost savings.
Fleet managers at Andrew Page will now have access to next-generation telematics platform Masternaut Connect, particularly the eco-Drive and Live modules – all with the aim of improving vehicle efficiency and productivity. With this powerful suite of tools Andrew Page has access to data that can help provide benefits across the business.
From a HR perspective, fleet managers will be able to monitor driver behaviour in order to provide feedback on driving habits, in line with Masternaut best practise guidelines. By monitoring and benchmarking driver behaviour, fleet managers can educate and improve driver performance, helping to create a safer and more efficient mobile workforce.
Logistically, fleet managers will have realtime and in depth visibility of their entire fleet of vans. This will ensure that coordination challenges can be minimised, reducing fuel costs. This greater visibility will immediately be felt by customers, who will know exactly where their delivery is and exactly when it will arrive.
Andrew Page decided to take on Masternaut’s solution full time following a successful trial period in Birmingham, which delivered a 7.1% improvement in mpg and a 47% reduction in harsh events.
Mark Saunders, chief operating officer at Andrew Page, said: “This is a major step for us in safeguarding the future of our business and we’re delighted to be working closely with another well respected local firm, Masternaut.”
He continues, “We pride ourselves on supplying the very best service to our customers and value the high standards we work to. Masternaut has demonstrated that its solution is capable of helping us to further this, by giving us detailed and up to the minute views of our driver locations, whilst also helping us to make vital cost savings.”
“We’re delighted to be working closely with Andrew Page to help the company deliver on its efficiency goals” commented Martin Hiscox, CEO at Masternaut. “Both companies have recently gone through a period of change, so we’re excited to see what the future holds and how we can become a part of it. We’re confident that once again telematics will provide yet another company with a cost effective method of improving customer service and benefits across the business.”
