Acorn Analytical Services selects Ctrack for vehicle tracking

Acorn Analytical Services

Environmental and asbestos consultancy Acorn Analytical Services has adopted an advanced vehicle tracking solution from Ctrack.

The company will use the web-based Ctrack Online telematics system to monitor its fleet of 15 cars and vans used by its team of engineers and consultants.

Acorn initially took the decision to install a tracking system following discussions with its motor fleet insurance partner about the best ways to manage claims costs and reduce annual premiums.

The company will use Ctrack Online’s reporting tool to manage and verify timesheets and overtime claims, helping streamline payroll processes, reduce back-office administration and manage workforce overheads.

Meanwhile, employees will use the Ctrack Mobi2 driver app, located on their smartphones, to switch between business and private mileage settings for added privacy when driving outside of working hours.

This will also provide individual driver behaviour feedback and analysis, as well as route planning functionality with distance, travel time and directions.

Elsewhere, Ctrack Online will give Acorn the ability to identify the nearest and most appropriate engineer for emergency call-outs from its head office in Leeds and use traffic overlays to calculate accurate journey times.

Stephen McGlone, operations director at Acorn Analytical Services, said: “We are continually looking to adopt best practice processes and leading technology solutions in order to achieve the highest levels of performance, innovation and customer service.

"Working in partnership with Ctrack, we have developed a vehicle tracking system that will become an essential tool for our business and help maintain quality across our operation.”
