CARE: Tayto Group go with TomTom
Leading crisps manufacturer Tayto Group are adapting TomTom’s fleet management technology to manage road risk and boost their duty of care to drivers.
Across their 117-strong vehicle fleet, the snack company are introducing a combined tracking, performance monitoring and fuel management system.
This will help provide improved visibility and insights into their mobile teams of sales, management and distribution professionals.
Peter Rush, Purchasing Manager of Tayto Group, said: “By giving us the tools to monitor and improve driving performance, the TomTom solution offers us enormous potential to improve the safety of our mobile workforce while at the same time reducing our fuel consumption.
“Having instant access to a wealth of real time data and management reporting information will prove extremely valuable and further strengthens the commitment we have to our safety and environmental programmes.”
Supported by official TomTom partner Fleet Simplicity, Tayto have deployed LINK tracking units and ecoPLUS™ fuel management and diagnostics devices across their vehicles.
The system enables information on how vehicles are being driven to be collated via TomTom’s WEBFLEET management software in a live information dashboard or customisable report.
It also provides live information on the location of the entire fleet, while additionally taking fuel consumption data directly from vehicles’ engine management systems to optimise mpg.
The TomTom system has also been integrated with Tayto’s Agnew Fleet Manager software from Agnew Corporate.
This aims to further simplify online fleet maintenance, administration and tax compliance for Tayto’s leased vehicles.
Fleet Simplicity managed the implementation process of the TomTom system, including installation, training and system setup.
The company will also provide ongoing support to ensure Tayto are updated on regular product and system updates to continually drive down costs and maximise efficiencies.
