  • Northgate Vehicle Hire Celebrates 2011 Vehicle Monitoring Success

    (, January 06, 2012 ) United Kingdom -- Northgate Vehicle Hire, market leaders in flexible contract hire and fleet solutions, is celebrating a successful year after the triumph of its vehicle monitoring telematics system. Proven to save up to 20% off fuel costs and 15% off overtime claims, vehicle monitoring has been delivering 24/7 fleet visibility for Northgates customers throughout 2011.

    The fleet manager that never sleeps, Northgates vehicle monitoring provides in depth reporting and data to allow customers to measure efficiency and ensures productivity levels remain high. It also fulfills duty of care responsibilities by identifying specific training or discipline requirements, which is a key area of focus for fleet managers worried about the safety of lone drivers. Alerted when a vehicles movements differ from those planned, the telematics system has seen personal vehicle use for Northgate customers slashed.

    Lisa Tomlinson, Fleet Manager of Cruden Property Services, said:

    The product has proved to be very favourable by all of our management team. We are able to locate drivers who are closer to emergency jobs saving us time and money rather than sending somebody else who is further away. As well as fuel savings and overtime costs we have increased productivity and trimmed personal vehicle use, both by 15%.

    Stuart Fairbrother, Head of Sales Non-Rental Products at Northgate Vehicle Hire explains how easy it is to set Vehicle Monitoring up:

    We dont require any initial lay out costs or tie companies into excessive contract terms. We can demonstrate in just 15 minutes how the state-of-the-art technology can save a company literally thousands of pounds whilst increasing operational efficiency.
