The latest satellite tracking technology is helping Nottinghamshire County Council to keep a 24-hour watch over its vehicles, plant and personnel in the field.
The personal ‘resource management’ system from Masternaut Three X gives the council a global real-time view of its fleet, plant and mobile staff, enabling it to enhance customer service levels, improve safety and reduce costs.
The new fully-integrated system utilises Masternaut’s vehicle tracking, Lokate lone-worker personal communication and discrete Asset Track plant security devices.
By using the system, Nottinghamshire tracks more than 200 vehicles, including gritters, gully cleansing equipment, vans, trucks and Lorries; ensures that lone workers are safe during site visits; and monitors mobile plant such as diggers, tractor mowers, wood shredders and ride on mowers.
“It gives us a bird’s eye view of our resources and monitors activities in real time as well as provides historical records for every vehicle and piece of plant, helping to boost our efficiency levels and deliver service improvements to our customers,” explained says Mick Monaghan, projects manager, Highway Operations, Nottinghamshire County Council.
“It also provides two-way communication for lone workers so that managers can keep in touch with staff whenever they are out on site.”
