Need to adapt to provide outstanding customer service ISG technology has a large number of high profile customers throughout the UK, each expecting a prompt service when necessary. They manage a large team of engineers and the need to become more competitive and efficient was increasingly apparent.
The business uses a service desk system, Tesseract, for scheduling appointments and it was due an upgrade. With a minimum of 300 service calls per week, the company was looking for ways to reduce costs and save time.
In the first instance, ISG technology had trialed a competitive telematics solution; however this was not meeting the business’ expectations. TomTom Telematics was recommended by the team at Tesseract, who knew that the solution would integrate with the software and meet with their requirements, and also believed that TomTom Telematics was a superior solution.
Driver Behaviour closely monitored and improved ISG technology has installed TomTom’s LINK tracking unit, PRO navigation devices, and ecoPLUS fuel monitoring devices within 59 of their engineer’s vans. This solution allows the fleet manager to monitor the movements of their vehicle fleet, whilst the drivers are able to avoid delays through the LIVE Services such as TomTom traffic.
With the ability to locate the nearest and most appropriate engineer, the business has benefited from increased efficiencies, both in terms of fuel and time savings. Customer service has improved because if there is a delay the customer can be notified and their expectations are easily managed.
As part of the solution, they have introduced OptiDrive, which gives drivers a profile based on four key elements of safe and efficient driving: speeding, driving events, idling, and fuel consumption. This allows fleet managers to reward safe driving and focus training time and budget on those below the fleet benchmark.
ISG technology uses this information to monitor driver behaviour and send reports to line managers to keep their drivers within company benchmarks and KPI’s. By utilising these solutions ISG technology expects to make considerable savings in insurance, servicing and running costs. The Active Driver Feedback (ADF) module instantly indicates to the driver how they are performing so they can improve their driving style in real time.
Admin time slashed by 100% The Finance Team has saved an incredible amount of administration time by extracting instant reports from WEBFLEET to record the number of hours driven by engineers each month. The fact that the reports are instantaneous, compared to a long download time in previous systems, resulted in an impressive time saving. The team is moving towards a system which will mean that manual timesheets will be replaced by the WEBFLEET reports.
Evgeniya Vukova, Finance Administrator of ISG technology says “Not only are we able to download data at the touch of a button, the information is far more comprehensive than previous systems and much easier to use, we have saved 12 hours of admin time per month.”
“TomTom Telematics has made us much more efficient in many areas, from job dispatch to logging working hours and mileage. We are now able to offer an even better service and experience to our customers.” says Graham Reardon, Head of Business Systems, ISG technology.
“We’re saving time on every job, resulting in our being able to fit in at least one extra job a day. With Wintac and TomTom working together, we’re able to keep our two businesses separate, but still ensure that each is operating at peak efficiency.”
“Working with TomTom has resulted in far more visibility into our fleet, which allows us to better manage an important asset for the company.”
