Arnold Clark Vehicle Management has announced its partnership with Lightfoot bringing a potential of 60% reduction in accidents.
The Lightfoot system offers a reported “potential 20% saving on fuel bills, 45% reduction in downtime and a 60% reduction in accidents, as well as offering vehicle tracking telematics data”.
The device is fitted to the vehicle, where it monitors the engine via the OBD port and determines its “efficiency sweet spot”. It then communicates this to the driver, providing audible and visual guidance to keep the driver on track.
Arnold Clark Vehicle Management’s managing director David Cooper said: “We’re delighted to formalise our partnership with Lightfoot which will help our fleets stay at the cutting edge of innovation.
“We offer customers a range of customised solutions to meet their needs and our latest partnership will create more efficient drivers which will translate into real savings across our fleets.”
The Lightfoot system will also incentivise drivers based on how consistently they have followed Lightfoot’s guidance, with the potential to unlock benefits and rewards.
The system also provides online telematics reports to ensure that fleet managers can maintain a broad overview of their fleets.
Lightfoot’s director Martin Kadhim said: “We couldn’t be happier that the largest dealer group in Europe has selected us as a partner – we have had a wonderful experience working with its partner business, Activa, and are looking forward to helping Arnold Clark’s customers improve vehicle efficiency and driver safety by rewarding their drivers for good performance.”
