Telematics: Digicore clinches Wales & West telematics deal

Wales & West Utilities, the gas distribution business in Wales and the South West of England responsible for around 34,000 km of gas pipeline, has appointed DigiCore to provide an advanced telematics-based vehicle tracking solution.

Under the agreement, DigiCore will install its C-track vehicle tracking system in 750 vans used by field service teams operating from the Welsh borders to Cornwall, an area covering more than one sixth of the UK.

Wales & West Utilities has been using a vehicle tracking system for a number of years, but recognised the need to adopt the latest technology that offered enhanced functionality and to better serve the fleet.

As a result, DigiCore was selected to develop and install a bespoke tracking solution that would enable the company to increase fleet efficiency, improve customer service and protect employees working remotely in the field.

Key improvements include enhanced mileage monitoring linked to existing servicing schedules enabling Wales & West Utilities to better manage the maintenance of its vehicle fleet.
