Barlows plugs into £20,000 savings with MiX Telematics18 May 2015

Electrical contractor Barlows Electrics UK is reporting savings of £20,000 a year in efficiency and scheduling improvements, after implementing the Fleet Manager solution from MiX Telematics.

The Malpas, Cheshire-based business says it has also cut accident rates across its 180-strong van fleet and improved community relations by creating geo-fenced areas to prevent speeding in residential areas.

The system is used to track vehicles, and to monitor hours on site and driver behaviour. Barlows has also set up reports for fleet visibility, trips, movements and locations, which are monitored every week and reviewed once a month.

"MiX Telematics's Fleet Manager is very important in helping us to manage our vehicles and our drivers," says Mark Barlow, fleet manager.

"We rely on the system to help us monitor vehicle activity, driver activity, plan the best routes and communicate arrival times to customers. It gives us tighter control of our fleet and enables us to make sensible decisions using solid accurate data."
