Cirrus turns to satnav to improve fleet efficiency
10:53am Tuesday 5th March 2013 in Hampshire Business
A HAMPSHIRE firm has introduced TomTom business technology to cut costs and boost efficiency.
Cirrus, the New Milton-based telecare, fire safety and security maintenance specialist, has invested in a sophisticated fleet management system that includes vehicle tracking and fuel monitoring.
Cirrus employs a workforce of more than 90 mobile engineers across the country.
Managers say a more efficient driving style among its staff will result in lower fuel bills, smaller insurance premiums and reduced vehicle maintenance.
Steve Russell, head of Cirrus, said: “Due to the size of our mobile workforce Cirrus wants to ensure the health, safety and welfare of those who need to drive company vehicles as part of their job.
“Through an investment in fleet management technology we can help mitigate risk and improve driving behaviour.
“By reducing our carbon footprint and servicing costs at the same time as improving productivity and service standards, our fleet operations can provide solid foundations for future business growth.”
