Pivotal, the UK and Ireland’s preeminent transactional management solutions provider, has invested in a suite of telematics solutions to support the continued expansion of its fleet.
The cash management specialist has partnered with Trakm8 to install the vehicle technology provider’s RH600 Telematics Integrated Camera throughout its 130-strong fleet of vans. Specialising in the safe and secure transportation of cash for organisations of all sizes, Pivotal has a network of seven depots across the UK and Ireland.
The investment in driver technology comes at a crucial time for Pivotal, as the business further grows its footprint in the two countries.
The roll-out of Trakm8 technology across the Pivotal fleet follows a successful trial of the solution at its Birmingham depot. The pilot scheme of the RH600, with vehicle connected data, helped Pivotal make significant savings on both mileage and labour across its fleet, with the solution’s optimisation function – an intuitive route planning algorithm – helping the depot reduce fuel spend by 15%.
Rónán Harper, CEO at Pivotal, explains: “It’s no understatement to say that our fleet is the lifeblood of our business, so ensuring our drivers have all the support they need to work as safely and efficiently as possible is absolutely paramount to our wider success.
“I’d long been aware of the impact vehicle technology could have on fleet operations, but knew how important it was to invest in a solution that was the best fit for Pivotal. I knew whatever system we chose would need to go beyond just telematics; it would have to sit at the heart of a wholesale cultural change for our business.
“With Trakm8, we’ve found something that delivers just that. As demonstrated in the trial at our Birmingham branch, the RH600 doesn’t just deliver excellent return on investment – it ensures buy-in from our drivers too.
“The results of our initial trials have been incredibly encouraging and we’re currently in the process of rolling out the RH600 across our wider fleet. I know it’s crucial to ensure our drivers are engaged with the system as early as possible, so we’re using the RH600 to help launch a Driver Leaderboard, linked to our internal rewards programme, to celebrate the best of the best across our group. We hope it inspires some friendly competition!”
Joe Heidari, Corporate Sales Director at Trakm8, added: “We are extremely pleased to add Pivotal to a long list of well recognised brands already utilising our technology.
“It was clear from the initial meeting we had with Pivotal’s management team they are a very ambitious business and believe Trakm8’s full 360 solution can play a key role in their growth plans.
“In addition to improving safety and reducing operational cost our customer tracking features on Insight allows Pivotal to deliver better customer service too and this was a key objective for them.”
The RH600 is Trakm8’s game changing telematics integrated camera, bringing together a wealth of features that make it one of the most revolutionary devices of its kind on the market. More than just a standard dash cam, the RH600 offers a wide range of features to deliver sophisticated telematics information, available at a fleet manager’s fingertips via a web portal or app. The RH600 can provide fleet managers with valuable peace of mind, and can increase efficiency using the combination of state-of-the-art telematics and cutting-edge in-cab camera.
