Oakley Industrial Services improve fleet utilisation using routeMASTER tracking from AGM

Oakley Industrial Services improve fleet utilisation using routeMASTER tracking from AGM.jpeg Oakley Industrial Services, the facility management and construction specialists, report improved vehicle utilisation  and more accurate job scheduling since fitting the routeMASTER tracking system supplied by AGM Telematics.

“We started with the system about a year ago” says Director Natalie Clarke, “with the aim of improving the way we  allocate vehicles to particular assignments. Previously we would spend quite a lot of time trying to locate drivers  and would have to calculate when they could get to the next job.”

Now, Natalie and the team can monitor each vehicle’s movements in real time from the moment they switch the  engine on until the end of the day.

“We have the ability to switch vehicles from job to job with no uncertainty regarding the optimum route to take. We  can also keep tabs on individual driving history and always know how long each driver has been behind the wheel.”

This, according to Natalie, helps to maintain cost effective journey plans, reduce time wastage and save fuel. Furthermore, the traffic office can provide customers with accurate and instant ETA information at any time.

“For every project” concludes Natalie Clarke, “we provide detailed risk and method statements along with safety planning and security provision. Accuracy and safety lies at the heart of what we do and it makes good sense to bring our fleet control in line with general policy. Certainly, the routeMASTER system provides a number of benefits in this regard and it fits well with our overall approach of supplying a reliable and efficient backup service in the field.”

Oakley Industrial Services is based in the Midlands and provides a nationwide service which covers all aspects of facility management including roof maintenance and gulley clearing, fall protection, drain jetting, general façade maintenance and wall cladding.
