The business originally deployed Ctrack Online as part of a wider fleet improvement strategy and has since seen a dramatic drop in fuel usage, as well as a reduction in road collisions, increased staff well-being and lower insurance premiums and maintenance costs.

Following its success, the company will continue using Ctrack Online across a 136-strong van fleet operated by James Frew’s team of engineers. This includes Ctrack’s in-vehicle Driver Behaviour Indicator (DBI) and Driver League Table Reporting, so James Frew can encourage improved driving styles behind the wheel while historically identifying any underperforming drivers.

“Ctrack Online has enabled us to improve driver behaviour and change the mind-set of our engineers, so it has become has become an essential part of our ongoing fleet improvement programme,” said Sandy Clare, financial director of James Frew. “By encouraging responsible and stress-free driving that avoids aggressive vehicle handling, we have not only contributed to staff well-being, but also achieved significant operational savings and much improved road safety.”
