SAS Global Communications is using an advanced telematics solution from Ctrack to enhance fleet performance and reduce operating costs.
Having adopted the Ctrack Online vehicle tracking system last year across a fleet of vans used by a team of engineers in its physical infrastructure division, the company has achieved a host of benefits including a material increase in productivity.
SAS Managed IT Services’ physical infrastructure manager Alvin Thompson said: “SAS has experienced clear benefits from using Ctrack Online in terms of productivity improvements and cost reduction.”
SAS selected Ctrack Online based on the usability of the system and its comprehensive reporting capabilities. In using the Mobi Driver App, engineers can record business and private mileage via their smartphones.
By electronically capturing this HMRC requirement, the company has been able to streamline administrative processes and replace a paper-based system.
Ctrack Online’s working time report is also helping SAS to verify timesheets and overtime claims, resulting in further time and cost savings.
Thompson said “We have been impressed with the level of support provided by Ctrack, which ensured the telematics system has been set up to meet our particular requirements and was installed without any disruption to the business.
"We are already exploring how else to take advantage of its capabilities in terms of driver behaviour monitoring and duty of care compliance.”
