Kier is set to benefit from a range of cutting-edge tools through the Director platform, including a tracking device, which shares information such as location, speed, utilisation and time spent on site. This will enable Kier to monitor driver behaviour; braking, acceleration and cornering to ensure projects are delivered cost efficiently. The Director platform also offers automation processes, such as service scheduling.

Kier is aiming to reduce its emissions by 30% by the year 2030, as part of a Group 30 by 30 strategy, which the Director platform should assist in achieving.

Anthony Parish, group fleet director of Kier, states: “As one of the UK’s largest fleets, we are pleased to be working with Teletrac Navman and its innovative Director platform. We are committed to providing the safest and most effective fleet that we can, and this new service provides useful intelligence and data that ensures we maintain a quality, proactive and reliable service.”

Peter Millichap, UK marketing director at Teletrac Navman, commented: “When speaking to Kier, it was clear the business needed an end-to-end overview of its fleet in order to make informed decisions based on real-time data, which Director provides through one easy-to-navigate interface.”
