Edwin James Group, a leading facilities engineering services business operating across the UK, has appointed Ctrack by Inseego as its telematics partner to support the ongoing transformation of the business. The company will adopt the web-based Ctrack Online to monitor a fleet of 265 vans, used by its nationwide team of engineers, to improve road safety, operational productivity and fleet efficiency.
Mark Longley Corporate Services Director at Edwin James Group commented: “As part of the transformation of the business, supporting our ambitious growth strategy, we have been implementing simplified, streamlined and consistent processes across the group. As part of this, we needed a single vehicle tracking solution that would enable us to enhance performance, improve driver behaviour, safeguard staff and protect our reputation. We teamed up with Ctrack based on their proven expertise within the marketplace and the advanced functionality of the system.”
Following a competitive tender process, Edwin James Group selected the Ctrack solution to roll-out across all its operating businesses that deliver a range of mechanical, electrical, energy, and process engineering services. Certain areas of the group had previously used vehicle tracking, but this will be the first time a centralised system has been adopted that provides complete visibility and control over its vans and drivers.
The Ctrack telematics system will include a Driver ID solution, so Edwin James Group will be able to see which driver is operating a vehicle at all times, gaining greater insight into the status, whereabouts and actions of individual employees both historically and in real-time. This will be combined with an extensive reporting package including the executive dashboard and speed band report. Ctrack Online will be used by the company’s central fleet team, based in Glasgow, as well as providing controlled access to managers at each business unit.
Steve Thomas, Managing Director of Ctrack by Inseego said: “We are committed to providing the highest levels of expertise and support to ensure we implement vehicle tracking solutions that deliver maximum benefits in the shortest timescales. We are delighted that Edwin James selected Ctrack above all the other tracking systems they considered.”
