Nov. 28, 2006 – The Academy of Plumbing, an approved contractor for the water industry, has reduced its fleet overheads and improved operational productivity using DigiCore’s C-track vehicle tracking and fleet management system. As a result, the company has chosen to expand its vehicle tracking initiative and increase the number of vans fitted with the system from fifteen to twenty-five.
Positional data is sent direct to The Academy of Plumbing’s base in Harlow, Essex, and is relayed via a plasma screen so office-based employees can monitor the exact whereabouts and status of the mobile service team. This has enabled the company to effectively manage Congestion Charge payments, minimising related costs and fines, whilst enhancing job response times and customer service levels through improved job scheduling and work allocation.
Terry Rayner at The Academy of Plumbing commented: “The C-track system has demonstrated the value vehicle tracking can offer to our business, providing an effective means to monitor our service management team and delivering tangible operational benefits. The service and enthusiasm we have received from DigiCore has been first-rate and has ensured that the initiative has been seamlessly introduced to our fleet operation to achieve maximum benefits.”
Tom O’Connor, Managing Director of DigiCore Ltd said: “We are committed to supporting our customer’s businesses by providing market-leading vehicle tracking solutions and optimum service levels. Our partnership with The Plumbing Academy underlines the effectiveness of the C-track system and the measurable benefits it can provide to operators within the utilities and service management sectors.”
