Serving over one million people every year, the fleet at Autoglass® transverses the country 24/7, providing an essential, world-class service. As the market leader in vehicle glass repair, replacement, and recalibration, Autoglass® has a reputation for excellence, and in 2018 Autoglass® partnered with Trakm8 in a drive to further pursue high quality in its fleet of vehicles.
For Autoglass®, whose skilled technicians are the heartbeat of the company, driver behaviour and performance are directly linked to reputation. Telematics provides a simple and cost-effective way to help people drive more safely, thereby protecting an organisation’s reputation.
Trakm8 telematics products were the perfect solution for Autoglass®, offering the data needed to drive improvements in driver behaviour in a cost-effective package. Enabled by Trakm8’s comprehensive data, Autoglass® designed a scheme to recognise and reward drivers that consistently achieve perfect scores in driving behaviour, speed limit compliance and idling time, contributing to an even greater improvement in driver behaviour. Autoglass® achieved impressive results through the use of two Trakm8 products – the highly compact and robust Connect 330 OBD Self-Install device and the RoadHawk high definition Dash Cam.
Since 2018, Autoglass® has:
- reduced speeding events fleet-wide;
- reduced average idle time per vehicle by over 50%;
- markedly improved driver behaviour from an already excellent starting point; and
- improved insurance claim handling with the use of dash camera evidence.
Andrew Ertl – Fleet Manager at Autoglass®: “The Trakm8 Connect 330 has helped our fleet make gains in many areas. We’ve improved our fleets’ overall driving score to an industry-leading level, while reducing costs accrued from accidents, insurance claims and vehicle idle time. We’ve been highly impressed with how these products have worked and with their high ROI and we’re looking intensely at how we can further integrate Trakm8 telematics into our wider fleet management systems.”
Peter Mansfield, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Trakm8: “We’re really proud that Trakm8 products have had such a transformative impact on an established and well-regarded fleet operator, proving that telematics can have a significant positive impact on fleets of every size and shape.”
