One of the UK’s largest facilities management companies, has improved the safety of its mobile workers after equipping 1000 service vehicles with Masternaut satellite tracking. The Masternaut Three X real-time service is part of Romec’s health and safety measures for its workforce. It has already reduced speeding by 82 per cent and fines by 26 per cent, with a 28 per cent reduction in road traffic accidents (RTA) involving Romec staff.
"We’ve installed Masternaut GPS vehicle tracking systems for all engineers. This will work alongside our scheduling software and allow us to provide 24 hour accountability. The impact of the system has been extremely positive in reducing speeding and RTAs involving our people and associated endorsements and fines," says Lee Russell, IS Business Partner, Romec.
The web-based Masternaut service gives Romec’s engineering services team a live view of its vehicles and drivers, enabling real-time monitoring of actual progress against work schedules. With the system, managers in the National Service Centre, Stockport, are able to see vehicles travelling to and from customers sites and receive automatic alerts on screen and in real time.
"The National Service Centre protects 500,000 assets throughout the UK and with Masternaut we get a bird’s eye view of engineers where ever they may be at any time. The always-on vehicle tracking service not only supports our duty of care policy, it also helps to encourage engineers to drive carefully and consider other road users," says Lee Russell.
