Sas Global Communications drives productivity and efficiency improvements with Ctrack online

Sas Global Communications, a provider of managed network and application services, is using an advanced telematics solution from Ctrack, an Inseego company, to enhance fleet performance and reduce operating costs.  Having adopted the Ctrack Online vehicle tracking system last year across a fleet of vans used by a team of engineers in its physical infrastructure division, the company has achieved a host of benefits including a material increase in productivity.

Following a review of the telematics marketplace, SAS selected Ctrack Online based on the usability of the system and its comprehensive reporting capabilities. The company had recognised a need to gain greater visibility and control over its engineers, responsible for the installation of network solutions at private-and public-sector sites across the UK. This has enabled its office-based team to use real-time positioning and vehicle status data to support improved vehicle scheduling and deploy the most appropriate resource to incoming jobs.

Meanwhile, SAS is using the Mobi Driver App, so engineers can record business and private mileage as well as provide supporting notes about individual trips via their smartphones. By electronically capturing this HMRC requirement, the company has been able to streamline administrative processes and replace a paper-based system that previously required information to be collated manually. Ctrack Online’s working time report is also helping SAS to verify timesheets and overtime claims, resulting in further time and cost savings.

Alvin Thompson, physical infrastructure manager at SAS Managed IT Services commented: “SAS has experienced clear benefits from using Ctrack Online in terms of productivity improvements and cost reduction. We have been impressed with the level of support provided by Ctrack, which ensured the telematics system has been set up to meet our particular requirements and was installed without any disruption to the business. We are already exploring how else to take advantage of its capabilities in terms of driver behaviour monitoring and duty of care compliance.”

Steve Thomas, managing director of Ctrack said: “By working closely with our customers we are able to help them deliver significant business benefits and achieve return on investment. This is a key reason why businesses of all sizes are turning to Ctrack to implement advanced telematics solutions for their fleet operations.”
