Clare Council installs vehicle and people tracking systems 28 February 2013

Clare County Council has installed vehicle tracking as well as lone worker security systems on its entire fleet of 15-tonners and above.

The council intends to use the Ctrack Online system on 18 commercial vehicles, primarily used for road maintenance during summer months, including haulage of crushed rock and surface dressing chips.

A spokesperson for the council says that tracking will provide added visibility and control for the vehicles, as well as enabling its workshop to improve maintenance planning.

Meanwhile, the Ctrack ICE2 personal tracking, mobile communication and panic alarm devices are being issued to all drivers – including of salting and gritting trucks for their protection in difficult weather conditions.

"The Ctrack system will help us provide an efficient, reliable and quality service during the road-making season in the summer months and during the winter months when we have to provide cold weather maintenance services," says the spokesperson.

"We selected Ctrack Online because of its flexibility, which means it can be accessed by multiple office-based staff through any computer or via a mobile device," he continues.

"Meanwhile, Ctrack ICE2 will provide additional safety to our workforce in the field and give mobile employees added protection against potential risks."
