Premier wastes no time saving £80,000 per year per vehicle with Masternaut Three X

Leeds, UK, 28 May 2008 – Premier, one of the UK’s largest independent waste management companies, has opted for web-based vehicle tracking from Masternaut Three X to integrate with its back office software. Eighty vehicles will be kitted out with the Masternaut solution, which will help eradicate mountains of paper documentation, enable Premier move to immediate invoicing and save operational costs through improved routing.

“The improved routing alone will save in the region of £80,000 per year for each vehicle. For example, we have been able to reduce a 6-vehicle collection round to 5 vehicles through better route planning and management. This will allow us to improve our collection performance and also helps with managing our carbon footprint,” says Paul Littlefair, Divisional Director, Premier Waste.

Using Masternaut, Premier will be able to track all vehicle movements in real-time with live and historic data for mileage covered and times of arrival and departure from customers’ sites.

“Masternaut will not only help us to get rid of a lot of paperwork it will provide evidence of when our vehicles were on site. Many of our customers request copies of signed collection notes and often this documentation is lost or misplaced by the customer. With the live and historic information from the system we can immediately answer any queries from customers and resolve any service or invoice disputes,” says Paul Littlefair.

In addition, Premier is trialling the Masternaut Driver ID Key which links employees to specific vehicles. This will enable Premier to accurately track individual drivers offering better visibility of staff for both operational and Health & Safety purposes.

Masternaut Three X is also developing a PDA-based real-time solution in conjunction with Premier’s specialist back-office waste management software supplier ISYS. This integrated solution will allocate jobs to the waste collection operators and capture customer signatures in real time. The integrated PDA solution will be rolled out within the next two months.

“The ability to capture a customer signature on site will further streamline our service and will help us to provide our customers with real time information. As soon as a signature is captured and transmitted back to our system we will be able to email a copy ticket to the customer to show that we have collected their waste with the signature as confirmation of the service being completed as scheduled,” concludes Paul Littlefair.
