Practical Car and Van Rental has chosen telematics provider Simplytrak as the preferred supplier for over 4,000 vehicles on its fleet.
The rental giant has more than 150 car and van hire locations situated throughout the UK and Ireland, and has signed up Simplytrak as it looks to increase fleet visibility and safety and cut costs.
Simplytrak’s vehicle tracking system offers integrated cameras and live footage of incidents, supported by in-depth fleet reports for those who wish to monitor vehicles for driver behaviour, mileage and fuel usage amongst other options.
Optimum control is also provided over vehicles with the help of Simplytrak’s Remote Immobilisation option, which can de-mobilise vehicles with the click of a button.
Darren Williamson, Practical’s insurance manager, said: “Simplytrak are rated very highly within the marketplace for their products. They came to us with a solution that works for our franchise network. A lot of franchisees on the network are already using Simplytrak’s service and have returned with very good reviews. It allows us to give back control to the franchisees.”
Ian Wood, Simplytrak’s managing director, added: “We are delighted that Practical Car and Van Rental have chosen us as their preferred supplier of tracking solutions. Having spent a lot of time with our customers, we recognised the need for more visibility and control of their vehicles. Our Tracking solution and Remote Immobilisation feature gives fleet managers that ultimate control of their vehicle, increasing safety and reducing costs.”
