Fagan & Whalley has struck a six-figure deal with Microlise, who will provide a telematics and fleet camera solution across its 170 heavy goods vehicles.
The firm say the new solution will help to improve driving style, health and safety for drivers and increase data immediacy and accuracy to boost its analytical capabilities.
As well as vehicle tracking and driver performance management, Fagan & Whalley is also deploying the Microlise multi-camera solution, which will allow footage to be downloaded online and viewed alongside vehicle telemetry and safety information.
The Incident Data Recorder will display exactly what was going on in the vehicle immediately before and after any incident including throttle engagement, cornering and acceleration metrics, as well as braking and cruise control.
In addition, the Remote Digital Tachograph Download will help Fagan & Whalley to improve the ease of collecting tachograph data, removing the need to manually collect drivers’ hours information from each truck.
Martyn Richardson, compliance manager at the company, said the time was right to switch supplier to take advantage of the latest tools on the market. “We have very high standards for our drivers and believe that the implementation of Microlise will help us to take our use of technology to the next level.
“We wanted a market leader which would be able to deliver even greater accuracy and enable us to provide even better driver support through training.”
Microlise, which is one of Europe’s largest telematics companies, has more than 350,000 active vehicle connections worldwide and works with 13 of the UK’s 15 largest retailers delivering telematics, technology and transport management solutions.
Microlise chief executive officer Nadeem Raza said:
“We’ve seen the great work Fagan & Whalley is already doing in using the telematics data."
