Grounds maintenance company chooses Tracker

Blue Sky Development & Regeneration, a not-for-profit grounds maintenance company providing employment for ex-offenders, has selected Tracker Fleet to drive down its fleet and fuel costs.

For an organisation like Blue Sky, controlling costs is essential. The organisation was established by the charity Groundwork Thames Valley to give paid work to people coming out of prison, enabling them to move successfully into long-term employment.

Blue Sky has employed nearly 500 ex-offenders and carries out top quality grounds maintenance under contract to organisations in the private and public sectors.

"Tracker Fleet is bringing us fuel savings of £400 per month, as well as reducing our annual insurance premiums by as much as £50 per van," said Steve Finn, of Blue Sky Development & Regeneration.

"These savings are invaluable for a not-for-profit company like ours. Tracker’s telematics also helps us improve the efficiency across our workforce, helping us meet our duty of care by monitoring driving times and staff safely.

"Tracker’s telematics has become an integral part of our fleet management, providing detailed information on speeding, driver hours, mileage and journey times. All this helps us make real savings and look after our drivers.”

Stephen Doran, managing director of Tracker added: "We work closely with clients to ensure they get the best from TRACKER Fleet, which can be tailored to meet their specific needs.

"Blue Sky operates a fairly small fleet, but as a not-for-profit organisation they need to keep a keen eye on costs and telematics is already helping them save on fuel, while looking after the efficiency and safety of their fleet and drivers. We will be working in partnership with Blue Sky to maximise the benefits our telematics solution can bring to its organisation."
