Severn Trent Water upgrades vehicle tracking device

Severn Trent Water has awarded a three-year contract extension to Ctrack for its commercial vehicle fleet.

Under the agreement, the company has upgraded its existing tracking system to Ctrack Online with Driver ID’s across approximately 1,700 commercial vehicles, with the aim of enhancing health and safety, boosting performance and reducing operating costs.

Ctrack Online will be accessible to around 300 users at various offices across the Midlands.

The web-based tracking tool will be operated alongside an existing scheduling system to support the efficient planning of jobs and to optimise processes.

By accessing real-time data Severn Trent Water will have greater visibility of all vehicles, enabling them to better coordinate the fleets operations and to achieve high levels of customer service.

Meanwhile, Driver ID will enable Severn Trent Water to gain greater insight into the status and whereabouts of its field workers, especially employees that share multiple vehicles.

This will positively contribute to the company’s constant focus on health and safety. 

The vehicles are fitted with a Driver ID reader and each field qorker is assigned a unique key that is scanned before starting a journey.

David Cross, project manager at Severn Trent Water commented: “The functionality and usability of the Ctrack Online system means it will meet our current and future needs to help drive productivity, completion of work and enable further health and safety benefits."
