Contract Security track cash in transit on the Web with Masternaut

Contract Security
1 November, 2003

One of the UK’s few specialist cash transfer companies, Contract Security Services, has begun tracking its fleet on the Internet using technology from telematics company Masternaut. Contract Security Services specialise in collecting and handling cash for local authorities. With collections from parking meters, vending machines, schools and other public buildings, Masternaut provides continuous tracking of vehicles as part of a sophisticated security system to protect staff and cash in transit.

Contract Security first installed vehicle tracking 3 years ago, but Masternaut offers the very latest in telematics development, combining GPRS mobile communications, GPS and Web technology. As well as improved safety and security, Masternaut provides key operational benefits such as resource optimisation. There are also important commercial benefits as it gives customers greater assurance - knowing that the transfer of cash is protected at all times.

Contract Security is a fast expanding company and the tracking service will help with improved control as the fleet expands. The company is seeing particular growth in the public sector and a 25-strong van fleet cover councils mainly in the London area. As well as cash collection and delivery, Contract Security provide a wealth of added services such as processing and banking cash

“Masternaut provides a highly reliable and easily accessible service 24 hours a day that has the added advantage of being very affordable” says James Britton, Customer Service Manager at Contract Security Services. “Key however is the level of customer service provided by Masternaut. It has been excellent and so much better than that provided with our old system.”

Masternaut equip vehicles with an intelligent mobile collection unit (MCU) that allows connection of any on-board electronic devices. This allows connection of alarms, door sensors, tachographs and in-cab routing, navigation and job despatch capabilities including Masternaut’s own PDA-based m-schedule system.
