Vehicle Tracking and Fleet Management
All the information we need at the click of a mouse.
At Passenger Plus we like to be in control. How useful would it be if we knew exectly where every vehicle was at any time, what time it would reach its destination and whether there would be any traffic delays that we should avoid?
All of our vehicles are fitted with Tom Tom Webfleet and advanced navigation. This tracking and reporting tool gives us a wealth of information, increases safety and security, and reduces our running costs.
Linking vehicles to the office
Each of our vehicles have GPS vehicle tracking, and a GSM transmitter to broadcast a vehicle's location coordinates. Back in the office, our planners view the whole fleet via a secure online application, to monitor each vehicle's journey.
Location data is refreshed every 15 seconds, so we always have the up-to-date information we need.
Navigating the smarter way
In the cab of each vehicle we have our TomTom professional navigation devices linked to the vehicle tracking system. These devices find the quickest routes, avoid traffic jams and prevent inefficient stop-start driving. They also help each driver to adopt a more fuel-efficient driving style by providing real-time Active Driver Feedback on speed, steering, braking and engine idling. Our systems are custom written for us, so our navigation takes into account vehicle dimensions and weight to ensure that any route taken is suitable for the size of vehicle.
Fleet management that helps drivers relax
Although we provide the best vehicles possible, driving can still be tiring. At Passenger Plus we standardise on features to help our drivers such as auto transmissions and driver air-conditioning ensuring that our team are safe, alert and in control. Our fleet management systems help drivers to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel, so our drivers will have fewer distractions and lower stress levels too.
More and more of our customers are required to report the carbon footprint of their businesses. At Passenger Plus we can help. We all know that a coach with 50 passengers will have a fraction of the carbon footprint of 50 single occupancy vehicles, but imagine if you could report this clearly and easily. With our fleet management systems we are able to produce CO2 reports either by journey or over a set period. Need this data e-mailed to you every week? No problem, we'll set up an automated report to be in your inbox whenever you choose.
All of our clients love the benefits that these systems deliver. From knowing exactly where our vehicles are, to navigating efficiently and safely, through to reporting our carbon footprint, journey times, mileage and a host of other features, we have the information at our fingertips.
As they say, knowledge is power – what a powerful team we must be!
