Digital print provider Altodigital has implemented TomTom fleet management technology, including an intuitive smartphone logbook app, to improve customer service and cut mileage claims across its 100-strong car fleet.
Using TomTom’s Webfleet fleet management platform to locate its mobile workforce, Altodigital will be able to quickly allocate jobs and route engineers to customers.
The move means Altodigital’s engineers will no longer have to complete manual mileage sheets at the end of each day, instead using the Logbook app on iPhones to keep accurate journey logs, validating journey information and selecting whether trips are for business or private purposes.
“Trying to resource, plan and dispatch more than 100 engineers can be very difficult, but with TomTom’s solution at our fingertips we will be able to streamline and improve our operations,” said Lou Read, service operations manager.
“What’s more, we are raising awareness of driving behaviour and encouraging improved driving standards, cutting fuel costs and boosting employee safety.”
The company is also using TomTom’s Ecoplus fuel diagnostic device, that reads fuel consumption data directly from vehicles to provide better insights into individual and total fleet mpg.
Giles Margerison, sales director at TomTom Business Solutions said: “Tools such as the Logbook app and driver behaviour monitoring technology, along with data on speeding, harsh braking and steering create greater business efficiency. By working together with easier access to actionable data, drivers and employers can make smarter decisions to realise benefits for the entire organisation.”
