BT Fleet Solutions is attending this spring’s CV Show to highlight how its digital solutions can help enhance fleet operations, along with BT’s smart delivery locker business.
At the show, BT Fleet Solutions, which manages 80,000+ vehicles and runs a 65-garage network with 50 mobile technicians – will provide an overview of how its vehicle check and accident management apps can bring a new way of working.
For drivers, the vehicle check app can be used to ensure drivers carry out a pre-use check on vans, logging any defects and arranging for the work to be carried out. It will also remind on any work, including MOTs and servicing.
The accident management app has been designed to bring support to drivers while cutting downtime in the event of an accident. It can be used to walk drivers through the information and evidence needed, enabling a BT Fleet Solutions call centre agent to provide support for drivers’ wellbeing and arrange repair using one of the BT Fleet Solutions Xpress pods, which can do 40% of repairs same day. The app also enables the fleet manager to see the information logged, including the accident detail, driver history and the telematics report, and then use the BT Fleet Solutions risk management tool to book the driver in for some training after looking at his driving history.
The BT Fleet Solutions stand at the show will also see BT’s supply chain business, Final Mile, showcase how its smart, secure delivery lockers can speed up the performance of field engineering teams. The service provides a network of boxes and lockers that helps field engineering teams be more efficient with their drive time and travel distances, and has just reached a major milestone through now being available from 1,000 sites nationwide. It’s also been adopted by EDF Energy, which is using the lockers and boxes to assist its nationwide rollout of smart meters.
It’s designed to reduce the amount of time engineers spend on the road, thereby helping organisations to reduce their fuel costs and total carbon emissions, creating greener, more sustainable businesses.
