Elevator firm Schindler has deployed telematics for the first time as it targets road safety and driver behaviour improvements.
Following a competitive tender process, the company is using the Ctrack Online solution to track its 357-strong fleet of vans for its nationwide network of lift maintenance and repair engineers, with the aim of reducing traffic accidents and lowering insurance costs by making its drivers safer.
The solution will use Ctrack’s Driver Behaviour Indicator (DBI), a dashboard-mounted feedback system, that alerts drivers to any infringements when on the road while a Driver League Table report will allow Schindler to compare performance across the fleet to help identify areas of improvement. Access will also be provided to Schindler’s insurance partner, HDI Global, to ensure it has the necessary levels of cover and support the claims management process.
Richard Paulin, procurement specialist at Schindler, commented: “Safety is a top priority for us and we adhere to strict safety codes and standards for all our products and services. We also recognise the importance of protecting our employees and the communities we operate in, so it was important to enhance this commitment to ensure we operate a highly responsible vehicle fleet.”
