Airmec gets essential insight into fleet data with Trakm8 telematics

Specialist air hygiene and water treatment solutions provider Airmec Essential Services is deploying telematics from Trakm8 to provide a comprehensive basis for identifying fleet efficiencies.

The firm, which carries out services for clients including the NHS, Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Defence, runs a 50-strong vehicle fleet and selected Trakm8 on the basis of the strength of its reporting and its ability to provide detailed insights of the vehicle health of its entire fleet – enabling Airmec to take a more proactive approach to fleet maintenance. Key priorities for its new telematics partner were also ease of installation.

Working closely with Airmec, Trakm8 recommended the use of its Connect 430 solution; engineered specifically for the fleet sector. The device can be self-installed by simply plugging it into the OBD socket, saving time and money. In addition, through deep CANbus connectivity, it provides extensive insights into driver behaviour and vehicle status, as well as GPS location data said to be highly accurate.

Also recommended was Trakm8’s Connectedcare solution, which provides advanced vehicle status and health data. By enabling remote access to diagnostic trouble codes and dashboard warning lights, the system alerts fleet managers to minor issues, ensuring fleets can put measures in place to ensure they don’t escalate into major problems. The system also allows fleet managers to identify unsafe or uneconomical driving styles to help mitigate risk and insurance claims, as well as saving money on fuel.

Tom Ford, vehicles, clearances and IT Controller at Airmec, said: “Through the use of Trakm8’s innovative telematics solutions we are now able to have a holistic view of our entire fleet that is simple to manage and the detailed insights allow us to identify areas where we can enhance efficiencies quickly.”
