SAVE: TomTom help Xylem increase efficiency
Xylem Water Solutions are improving customer service and boosting their green credentials after investing in TomTom fleet management technology.
The UK-based water technology company have launched an advanced TomTom system – featuring integrated tracking, navigation and vehicle diagnostic devices – across their entire 192-strong commercial fleet.
Supported by TomTom partner F16 Consulting, the move enables Xylem to provide customers with reliable ETAs, ensure their drivers arrive on time and generate substantial fuel and efficiency savings.
Paul Whiteside, Logistics Manager of Xylem Water Solutions, said: “We are regularly measured against Service Level Agreement KPIs by our customers and TomTom will help ensure we hit our agreed targets,”
“Our engineers will benefit from not only the safest, but also the quickest, possible journeys to customers, while avoiding congestion with smart IQ Routes and HD Traffic navigation technology.
“Improved routing, combined with driver performance monitoring tools, will also help cut fuel costs and, in turn, our carbon footprint.
“Having achieved the CEMARS standard for managing carbon emissions, this investment marks another crucial sustainability development with clients increasingly scrutinizing our green credentials.”
TomTom’s ecoPLUS fuel diagnostic device reads fuel consumption data directly from vehicles on the road to help optimise mpg.
This information, along with speeding, harsh braking and steering data, is instantaneously relayed to drivers through navigation devices and to managers through TomTom’s WEBFLEET fleet management software.
“TomTom’s solution will also help us to better manage road risk, improving the safety of our mobile workforce,” added Mr Whiteside.
“The impressive technology, combined with TomTom’s enviable brand reputation, made the business case for our investment extremely compelling.”
