Cybit, the UK’s leading online fleet tracking supplier, has extended an order for its Fleetstar-Online solution with OfficeTeam, the UK’s leading business services and products company. The new deployment will provide real-time vehicle information on a further 100 vehicles in OfficeTeam's UK-based fleet and will be used to support corporate strategies to reduce carbon emissions.

Fleetstar provides OfficeTeam with more efficient vehicle routing, which will maximise productivity and ultimately reduce the environmental impact of each vehicle across its 18 UK depots. OfficeTeam is committed to working in partnership with customers to build a brighter business future and has recently introduced a number of market-leading environmental initiatives including: recycling services for paper, toner and furniture, in addition to re-usable packaging and environmental appraisals. By ensuring OfficeTeam vehicles are managed to their maximum efficiency, Fleetstar enhances the overall environmental strategy.

"Environmental issues are at the top of the agenda at OfficeTeam and vehicle telematics fits in perfectly with the strategies we already have in place," commented Bill Appleton, Group Operations Director, OfficeTeam. "We use a number of electric vans and have added another 30 Mercedes Sprinters with start/stop technology, with a further 50 on order.

"The expansion of our use of tracking and vehicle reporting technology helps to effectively monitor vehicle usage to ensure that each journey is planned as efficiently and as environmentally friendly as possible. OfficeTeam aims to provide premium services to all of our clients and with the live vehicle information and routing provided by Fleetstar, we will be able to continue to deliver excellent service, whilst lowering the impact of our fleet on the environment through the reduction in the total mileage driven."

John Wisdom, Group Sales and Marketing Director, Cybit: "All businesses are looking at how they can maximise existing resources in the current climate and telematics is one way in which businesses can achieve these goals. The data and reports produced by Fleetstar can inform and support important business strategies, from cost savings to environmental targets, as OfficeTeam shows. There are significant benefits that companies can gain by investing in a telematics system."

Fleetstar-Online is Cybit’s industry leading, scalable suite of Internet-based mobile resource management 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.
