Overtec brings visibility to drivers and vehicles

A new company has set up in Sutton Weaver, Cheshire, to provide visibility to drivers and vehicles.

Called Overtec, it uses eye in the sky technology to show what is happening on the ground. The aim is to make it easy for managers to spot waste and increase responsiveness and easy for employees to show automatically what a good job they are doing.

Joint managing directors David Armstrong and David Thomas are behind the new venture. The duo were previously directors at an alarm receiving centre on the Wirral that specialised in lone worker monitoring.

Overtec claims its solutions can save a minimum of 15% on fuel and can reduce fleet insurance premiums by around 10%.

It provides an audit trail to show that jobs have been done efficiently and that vehicles have been driven responsibly to minimise effects on the environment and to maximise safety.

Armstrong says: “Using some of the country’s best monitoring facilities we can take lean management principles out of the workplace and on to the road and into remote locations, so that businesses can deliver the highest value to their customers.”
