TomTom tools improve productivity for Clarkson Evans 19 July 2012

Electrical contractor Clarkson Evans has invested in TomTom fleet management to boost productivity and improve management of its mobile workforce.

The company, which specialises in wiring new homes across southern England, the Midlands and south Wales, has now completed installation of the technology across its UK fleet of 160 vans.

"Having previously employed a telematics system that failed to meet our expectations, we turned to TomTom to help us allocate contractors to jobs more efficiently and monitor their time on site," explains Catherine Mason, Clarkson Evans' operations manager.

"TomTom's Webfleet software is extremely user-friendly, and ... we are already realising considerable efficiency gains from being better placed to optimise our operations," she adds.

In addition to TomTom's Link tracking units, Clarkson Evans has also installed its ecoPlus fuel monitoring and diagnostics device to give managers increased insight into fuel usage and to help lower fuel costs.

The ecoPlus device provides managers with real-time visibility of fuel efficiency by taking live data direct from vehicles.

Information on how the vehicle is driven – from fuel consumption to gear selection and driving events – is then used either in real time or to form a profile of individual driving styles.
