Burgin Maintenance Services, which provides installation and maintenance for heating and ventilation equipment, has saved more than £20,000 during the past year alone.
Nick Burgin, financial controller and company secretary at the firm, said: ‘With a fleet the size of ours, where engineers are paid on a door to door basis, savings per year are in excess of £20,000.’
The 24-strong fleet using the Quartix tracking system has also reduced travel time, fuel outlay and mileage while at the same time cutting insurance costs.
Burgin claims that the company also saves on average one hour per employee per week, in terms of previous overestimation of working time.
He added: ‘The biggest benefit of the tracking solution is that it allows more frequent delivery of a four hour response time in preference to a 12 or 24 hour response.
‘This is due to the real time location update on engineers. At any given time we know exactly where each of our engineers is and can pinpoint the fleet vehicle closest to the client.’
