Bristol-based Create Signs has invested in Tracker's telematics solutions to drive down fleet and fuel costs, as well as meet their duty of care obligations.

Specialising in the production and installation of interior and exterior signs for industries including construction, retail and local authorities, Create Signs says that it’s already reaping the benefits of Tracker’s fleet tracking systems.

As a small business running a fleet of five vehicles, it is essential the company provides a comprehensive and time-efficient service to its nationwide customer base. The company also wanted to better manage driver hours for overtime and ensure it was adhering to health and safety regulations whilst its employees were on the road.

Since the installation of Tracker units in its vehicles the company has says it’s already seen a 15% increase in fuel savings, improved efficiency of its fleet by up to 10% and a reduction in insurance premiums by around 4%. In addition, the overall management of staff time has been improved by 10%.

Andy Fogg, partner at Create Signs, said: "We are working in a tough economic climate and every penny counts for a business like ours that runs a small fleet. The investment in Tracker units has certainly paid off.

“Not only have we seen cost savings, but we are fully informed of where our staff are at any given time, plus we can make sure we are managing their time as efficiently as possible."
