Clare County Council has implemented a vehicle tracking and lone worker solution from Ctrack to assist with its road maintenance operation.
The Council will utilise the Ctrack system across 18 commercial vehicles as well as the ICE2 personal tracking and panic alarm device.
The tracking system has been fitted on all commercial vehicles over 15-tonnes within the Council’s fleet that are predominantly used for road maintenance including the haulage of crushed rock and surface dressing chips during Summer months. It will provide added visibility and control of the vehicles, as well as enable its garage to better manage planned maintenance and servicing.
All drivers of salting and gritting trucks used for the winter maintenance services will be provided with a Ctrack ICE2 device to offer protection for those working in difficult weather conditions, enabling them to call for assistance should any problem occur.
Ctrack ICE includes an SOS assistance panic alarm to alert of an incident or problem and auto answer to enable office-based operators to open a communication channel with a device.
Clare County Council commented: “The Ctrack system will help us provide an efficient, reliable and quality service during the road making season in the Summer months and during the Winter months when we have to provide cold weather maintenance services.
“We selected Ctrack Online because of its flexibility, which means it can be accessed by multiple office-based staff through any computer or via a mobile device. Meanwhile, Ctrack ICE2 will provide additional safety of to our workforce in the field and give mobile employees added protection against potential risks.”
John Wisdom, managing director of Ctrack said: “We are working with an increasing number of public sector organisations to deliver tracking solutions that support high levels of service and efficiency. Our unrivalled range of tracking tools mean we are best placed to develop systems that meet the precise needs of our customers for vehicles, mobile assets and employees in the field.”
