CMS Supatrak were awarded the IT Innovation Award at last week’s annual GreenFleet Awards at the Guildhall in London for their Ecotrak fuel saving technology.
The annual GreenFleet Awards, presented this year by motoring journalist and presenter Tiff Needell, took place at the Guildhall in London last week. The event, which recognises organisations taking steps towards and contributing to sustainable transport and low carbon fleets, saw a record number of applications this year across the 23 categories.
CMS SupaTrak, who provides fuel saving, vehicle tracking and mobile working solutions to businesses across the UK and Ireland operating a fleet of vehicles were awarded the trophy for the IT Innovation award, which invited applications from organisations involved in advancements in fleet technology.
The award commended CMS SupaTrak’s development of the EcoTrak fuel saving solution, which using CANbus technology, enables fleet managers to manage their drivers’ behaviours in real time and identify areas of good and poor performance. By identifying drivers who practice less efficient driving behaviours in areas including MPG, "green band" driving, engine idling, use of cruise control, over revving and speeding, fleet managers can implement remedial training where necessary and re-educate these drivers to modify their performance to deliver a more efficient driving style.
As a result, fuel costs can be significantly reduced and vehicle carbon emissions lowered.
The GreenFleet Awards judges commented that "the impressive customer case studies confirm the ability of the CMS SupaTrak solution to deliver targeted information that focuses management attention on those areas where the greatest operating cost reductions can be achieved. The cost savings and carbon dioxide reductions are indeed impressive."
Jason Airey, Managing Director of CMS SupaTrak collected the award and commented "We are so happy to accept this award. We have worked very hard to develop an innovative solution that fits the needs of our customers, saves them money and reduces their impact on the environment.
