VisionTrack’s connected forward-facing cameras have been chosen to provide video telematics to Speedy Asset Services’ fleet on all new vehicles.
The company has already installed 50 vans with VisionTrack’s VT2000 telematics cameras, which are intended to aid Speedy Asset Services with added visibility of any collisions, near misses and harsh driving events, the company said.
“We have taken the decision to make video telematics part of our fleet replacement programme, with all new vehicles to be fitted with VisionTrack’s industry-leading road safety technology,” explains Gareth Jones, road risk manager at Speedy Asset Services ltd. “The connected vehicle cameras will help target further improvements as part of our award-winning fleet safety strategy that has already reduced road collisions by 37 per cent, while also enabling us to avoid unnecessary insurance costs.”
Speedy Asset Services previously employed an alternative SD-card based system that often required up to three weeks before footage could be obtained from an incident, the company added, and using the new VisionTrack system has reduced that time to less than 30 minutes and enables Speedy Asset Services to check on the welfare of the driver, as well as receive real-time alerts.
“As one of the first fleets in the UK to achieve DVSA earned recognition we have demonstrated our commitment to keeping our people, customers and members of public safe by meeting all driver and vehicle standards. As part of this, we understood the need for an advanced and scalable video telematics system that safeguards drivers, prevents road collisions and mitigates fleet risk. We are working closely with VisionTrack – a technology leader that is driving innovation in connected technology and smart transportation – to take advantage of their unrivalled ambition, expertise, service and support,” concluded Jones.
Simon Marsh, managing director of VisionTrack commented: “We combine the most advanced and reliable technology with first-class service and support to provide solutions that deliver true value. With a growing number of fleet and transport operations seeking innovative ways of protecting vehicles, drivers and brand reputation, we are now partner of choice for connected vehicle cameras and video telematics.”
