Teletrac Navman to deliver telematics for Scutum FPG

Teletrac Navman has struck a new deal to deliver a telematics solution as part of a drive to improve fleet and equipment management for Scutum FPG.

The specialist supplier of fire and security solutions chose Teletrac Navman following multiple recommendations from other customers who utilise the provider’s software, it said.

FPG will implement Teletrac Navman’s Director platform across its 70-strong fleet to meet the demanding and evolving needs of its business. This includes increasing the daily visibility of its fleet; enhancing safety measures, particularly to benefit the business’ many lone workers, and minimising costs, predominantly rising insurance premiums.

With operations throughout the UK, FPG will benefit from vehicle tracking, which provides an overview of the location and performance of all the private and commercial vehicles that make up FPG’s fleet.

Additionally, its mixed fleet will also contain privacy buttons, to distinguish between business and private mileage.

Scott Hutchins, UK VP sales at Teletrac Navman, said: “As a business that’s committed to all aspects of health and safety for its workforce, clients and the general public, Fire Protection Group was seeking a solution that reflected this ethos, and our offering was a natural fit for its requirements.

“The business, which hasn’t previously embraced telematics, came to us following several peer-to-peer recommendations, demonstrating that we have a track-record for delivering exceptional customer service and maximum results.”

Speaking of the new deal, Fire Protection Group’s fleet manager David Armstrong, said: “This investment will transform the way we manage driver behaviour and the overall safety of our fleet, by giving us greater visibility and the provision to devise and implement a formal driver training programme.

“We’ve been particularly impressed by the aftercare from our appointed Customer Success Specialist, who has ensure we can hit the ground running through smooth planning and implementation of the new technology, as well as training to make sure it extracts as much value from the solution as possible.”
