Cybit, the UK's leading online Telematics Service Provider, has implemented its Fleetstar-Online solution for Environmental Property Services (EPS) plc, a leading UK property service specialist. Fleetstar-Online has enabled EPS to reduce fuel costs by ten percent through the provision of live, accurate fleet activity information, encouraging strategic management of resources.

EPS will use Cybit's Fleetstar-Online solution to streamline fleet planning processes, by accurately checking vehicle stock control levels in conjunction with live vehicle locations. This has resulted in a reduced number of duplicate and unnecessary journeys allowing EPS to cut down fuel expenditure and reduce its Carbon Footprint. At a time of increased Health and Safety, Duty of Care and Working Time Directive legislation, EPS management has the information to make key strategic decisions on compliance.

"Our previous track and trace solution gave basic vehicle location information, but EPS had experienced a period of significant growth and we needed a solution that would have the capacity to grow with us," commented Bruce Tee, Group Fleet Manager at EPS. "We saw in Fleetstar an application that would give us comprehensive high accuracy data which we could work with to fully manage a growing team from an operational level right through to a strategic perspective."

"Our responsibility to adhere to corporate compliance extends throughout EPS – and is particularly prominent across our mobile workforce," continued Bruce Tee. "We take our duty of care very seriously and the information that is gathered, stored and presented by Fleetstar means that we have instant access to high level vehicle and driver information. Cybit has really delivered on providing us with a top level telematics solution and we look forward to developing new processes through the implementation of extended Fleetstar modules."

Fleetstar-Online is Cybit's industry leading, scalable suite of Internet-based Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and vehicle tracking tools. The high quality data relating vehicle and job performance is captured in conjunction with location information, reported and analysed through Fleetstar. This allows meaningful business decisions to be made using up to the minute information on operational performance.

Powerful reporting capabilities facilitate effective management of operational costs and productivity; support strategic initiatives around Carbon footprint; and increase compliance with legislation including Duty of Care and Health and Safety. The strategic importance of Fleetstar-generated information extends beyond vehicle tracking into the heart of the enterprise: Fleet derived information can be directly integrated into a range of business systems to improve the efficiency of the entire organisation. Fleetstar provides the business-critical information that organisations need to execute a clear and rapid path to return on investment.
