The Bristol ‘Drive In’ is a purpose-built facility for installation, training and demonstration of Minorplanet’s fleet management solutions. Minorplanet developed the idea to offer customers increased flexibility on installation, maintenance and training of the systems.
Carolanne Hurley, operations director of Minorplanet Systems, said: ‘The service will benefit our customers. We are one of the few telematics companies to have a dedicated team of in-house engineers and our engineers can now fit our products faster, more efficiently and at the customer’s convenience.
For example, we can now install vehicles while en-route by scheduling the work to slot into the driver’s working day, during a rest period. Facilities include a vehicle installation workshop large enough for an entire cab and trailer or up to three smaller vehicles at one time and a training and demonstration suite which will be used for customers and Minorplanet employees.
The site will also offer amenities to drivers while the vehicles are being fitted-out.
