Parchow Groundworks Ltd, a specialist groundwork and civil engineering firm, is reaping the benefits of increased fleet efficiency and reduced insurance premiums since utilising Trakm8’s innovative RH600 4G Integrated Telematics Camera for its nearly 40-strong vehicle fleet.
Based in Hampshire, Parchow Groundworks offer a variety of services, including groundworks, foundation projects, drainage system installations and hard landscaping.
With a workforce of 120 out on site, and a duty of care to protect those workers, having high levels of health and safety is paramount in all Parchow Groundworks operations. With this in mind, the business wanted to adopt a telematics system that not only improved driver behaviour and enhanced the protection of its drivers, but also gave a full overview of fleet performance to identify areas where efficiency gains could be made.
Specifically, Parchow Groundworks wanted to target and provide training to drivers who speed and accelerate harshly in the attempt to bring down fuel costs. In addition, the business wanted to implement solutions to protect its drivers from accidents and to reduce insurance claims, ultimately leading to reduced insurance premiums.
AMS Portsmouth Ltd, an authorised reseller of Trakm8, identified the RH600 4G Integrated Telematics Camera as the best solution for Parchow Groundworks Ltd. The contract was awarded not only due to the powerful reporting its telematics system offers, but also the detailed insights Parchow Groundworks could access of the vehicle health of its entire fleet, all from one device.
Installed across the entire Parchow Groundworks fleet is Trakm8’s RH600. The most advanced 4G integrated telematics camera in the UK, the award-winning RH600 combines rich telematics data with an industry-leading in-cab camera system, providing drivers and fleet managers alike with a fully integrated and truly cutting-edge solution.
The RH600 has gained a reputation of helping reduce insurance premiums and incident costs by providing real-time driving performance data and easy access to road and in-cab video. Discreet yet powerful, the RH600 can help protect businesses from reputational and financial damages caused by accidents.
Steve Hale, Health & Safety Manager at Parchow Groundworks, said: “Given the nature of the work we carry out, it’s important our fleet runs efficiently and as safely as possible to provide the highest levels of service to our customers.
“Only recently the RH600 captured footage during an accident where one of our drivers was hit by a vehicle driving in the incorrect lane, saving all costs on our insurance claim, so we are already seeing benefits realised very quickly.
“Trakm8’s innovative telematics solutions pay for themselves, and we are now able to have a holistic view of our entire fleet that is simple to manage and the detailed insights allow us to identify areas where we can enhance efficiencies quickly.”
