Motus switches to Durite Nano Trackers13 February 2024

Motus Commercials Durite telematics

Motus Commercials has replaced the telematics units on a fleet of service vans with Smart Nano Trackers from Durite.

The Durite Smart Nano Telematics Tracker is a fleet management solution that enables users to locate their fleet in real-time. It connects to any power source on the vehicle. The fleet manager can view vehicle location and historical journeys in the Durite telematics portal as well as generate more than 80 reports.

Mark Price, head of aftersales for the south-west region, covering Motus depots in Avonmouth, Swindon, Frome, Gloucester and Hereford, said: “The trackers are great, they only take 20 minutes to fit. It is a very simple and reliable solution that provides precisely the functionality we need."

“If we change vans, all we have to do is email Durite and they will update the vehicle information on the system for us. The simplicity of the system and the quality of the support from Durite is what sold it to me. In our business it is not just about dealing with a problem but how you deal with it. So, what puts Durite head and shoulders above other telematics providers is they are always responsive. They always jump on an issue and if they can’t fix it remotely, they will replace the tracker. It means I don’t have to worry about the telematics at all. With Durite, we also have the flexibility to upgrade in the future.

“For our delivery vehicles, the track and trace functionality is the most important element, but we’ve also been able to do more with it. We are able to set up geofencing around Clean Air Zones so if one of our vehicles enters a zone in Bristol or Bath, we are instantly notified and can pay the fees in good time. It helps us to avoid issues further downstream and that makes us more efficient.”
