The company has installed systems produced by telematics company Cybit into 30 of its vehicles. Company bosses believe the move will 'help improve the visibility and management of its deliveries'.
Cybit's Fleetstar-Online is the system chosen by the company as its features include a multiple language option, real-time vehicle tracking, the ability to replay a journey electronically, customised reports, mileage reports and live traffic information.
Sericol customer service centre manager Mike Cole said: 'Although we had an existing telematics solution, we wanted to migrate to an internet-based telematics approach to help deliver management information about our fleet across the business. Most of our European deliveries use historical routes, which we believe can be optimised to increase the number of drops and make fuel savings.'
Cybit chief executive officer Richard Horsman said: 'With Fleetstar-Online we can provide organisations which operate across Europe, such as Sericol, with exactly the level of telematics functionality they require, while also providing them with an incremental upgrade capability so they can introduce additional capability when needed.'
