The Solution B’Smart implemented consists of a GPS tracking device. The system also records driving behaviour such as speeding, harsh braking and cornering. Our client is keen to be able to differentiate between business and private mileage and by installing the B’Smart solution, they are now able to do this. The system has been particularly well integrated into the vehicles, they use an audible alarm system which makes it compulsory for each driver to switch the unit on and enter their details, at the same time selecting whether they are on a private or business journey. This has proved a success in many ways. The business mileage report information recorded means that the weekly time sheet has become obsolete. Our client has made incredible savings since B’Smart solution was installed. “By monitoring the amount of business versus private mileage, the company recorded an outstanding 12,000 € saving over the course of one year. This equates to 8.500 litres of fuel,” says our client Pedro Martín, Technical Director of OUR CLIENT. “This has made our business more efficient and improved our environmental impact.” Savings have arisen as a result of reduced overall mileage and increased declaration of private mileage which drivers are responsible for. As part of the Duty of Care and Fleet Management policy the company set up speed alerts, which if ignored would result in disciplinary action. A daily report is produced and to date no driver has exceeded this limit. The engineers have received the equipment well and it provides a “win-win situation,” says Pedro Martín. If engineers select the private mode, they can make journeys in their own time, without OUR CLIENT knowing their whereabouts. They also benefit from the feature of live traffic information and satellite navigation, which makes trips easier for the engineers and less costly for the company.
