INVESTMENT: O’Donovan spend £80,000 on telematics
O’Donovan Waste Disposal are investing £80,000 in telematics monitoring equipment for their vehicles to help deliver safer and more efficient driver performance.
London’s leading waste management company are making the investment in support of their Greener Vision Strategy, which aims to reduce O’Donovan’s environmental impact.
Bespoke telematics technology has been fitted to each of the company’s 75 vehicles and has been designed specifically to meet O’Donovan’s exact requirements.
This means that driver behaviour can be monitored in real time and driving patterns can be identified so that potential training needs are recognised at an early stage.
Specifically, the new equipment will enable O’Donovan to analyse driver performance regarding driving style, speed, braking, cornering and idling.
The resulting data will enable O’Donovan to train and educate their drivers on the most economical, safe and green driving techniques.
As well as increasing the knowledge of the drivers, the telematics will also contribute to reducing the risk of accidents and improve road safety.
The £80,000 investment will be spent over the next three years.
Jacqueline O’Donovan, Managing Director of O’Donovan Waste Disposal, said: “As a company we are committed to operating to the highest standards when it comes to driver behaviour.
“We are constantly out on London’s busy roads, so it’s vitally important that all meet the standards we expect.
“We have found that sharing the data, and recognising successes has really engaged all our drivers and they are keen to analyse their own data and deliver the required changes.
“With technology at the forefront of everyday transportation, telematics systems bring real benefits for both fleet managers and drivers alike, helping them do their jobs more effectively and safely as well as being more environmentally friendly.”
