Car parts distributor uses telematics to improve vehicle efficiency and productivity

Fleet managers at Andrew Page now have access to the Masternaut Connect platform, with a focus on the eco-Drive and Live modules to help improve vehicle efficiency and productivity.

From a HR perspective, fleet managers will be able to monitor driver behaviour in order to provide feedback on driving habits.

The technology also provides real-time and in-depth visibility of the entire fleet of vans, ensuring that customers know exactly where their delivery is and exactly when it will arrive whilst also reducing fuel costs.

The firm is now using Masternaut’s solution full time following the trial period in Birmingham, which delivered a 7.1% improvement in mpg and a 47% reduction in harsh events.

Mark Saunders, chief operating officer at Andrew Page, said: ‘This is a major step for us in safeguarding the future of our business and we’re delighted to be working closely with another well-respected local firm, Masternaut.’

He continued: ‘We pride ourselves on supplying the very best service to our customers and value the high standards we work to. Masternaut has demonstrated that its solution is capable of helping us to further this, by giving us detailed and up-to-the-minute views of our driver locations, whilst also helping us to make vital cost savings.’
