Masternaut drives Bott Ltd towards a 15% a month fuel saving

Masternaut drives Bott Ltd towards a 15% a month fuel saving
3 December, 2013

Bott Ltd, the world-leading manufacturer and supplier of workshop equipment, in-vehicle equipment and workplace systems, is achieving widespread business benefits as a result of Masternaut's telematics technology.

The company which operates a network of commercial, HGV and service vehicles between its manufacturing bases across the UK brought on Masternaut, Europe's leading telematics provider, in October 2012.  Since then, it has recorded a 15% a month saving in fuel costs on its company cars and vans, alongside an increase in fleet efficiency and driver safety throughout every arm of the business.

With a strong reputation for service excellent and rapid response, Bott brought on the telematics solution across its fleet of vehicles - including trucks and light commercial vehicles - in order to further reduce customer response times. In addition to using the technology in its own fleet, Bott also resells the telematics systems to its customers, as parts of the van conversions arm of the business.

Via the at-a-glance view of every vehicle within Bott's fleet, managers are now able to pin-point the exact location and speed of any of their drivers at any given time. The company has been able to reduce the unnecessary time its vehicles spend on the road, while better managing customer expectations around delivery times by sharing this insight.

With Bott's articulated lorries making multiple deliveries across the UK every day, fleet managers at company headquarters are able to act instantly in the event of road delays or incoming customer requests.
"Given the range of locations we cover across the UK - and beyond - our drivers spend considerable amounts of time on the roads," said Bott Ltd's Logistics Manager, Chris Sweeney. "Anything which reduces this is hugely beneficial not only to our own business but, more importantly, to our customers too."

"Having installed Masternaut's technology across our fleet, we've been able to significantly cut down on the amount of time spent in transit, meaning our response times are quicker than ever. And through delivering the technology into our customers' own vehicles, they're experiencing the benefits first-hand too - it is a win-win!"
CEO and chairman of Masternaut, Martin Hiscox, added: "For businesses looking to achieve that vital competitive edge, every minute - and indeed every penny - counts. Bott, which coordinates fleets from one end of the UK to the other, is a fantastic example of how companies can be using telematics to save both time and money."
