Identify savings through data from your utlity fleet
Asset tracking is a game-changer for utility companies, especially in terms of boosting profitability. Fuel costs typically account for over 50% of total operating expenses, making cost control essential. Fleet management systems provide transparency and control over expenses by identifying cost-increasing activities like vehicle idling, unauthorised usage, inefficient routing, poor driver behavior, and vehicle maintenance mismanagement.
In addition, accurate mileage tracking, as offered by ABAX, helps companies meet HMRC requirements, minimise private mileage costs, optimise tax and NI contributions, and improve overtime payment accuracy. By identifying and rectifying unnecessary expenses, accurate asset tracking not only reduces financial impact but also increases the bottom line for utility businesses.

Increase vehicle and equipment uptime
Utility fleet management software is crucial for companies to minimise unexpected vehicle downtime, limiting its business impact. Factors like unauthorised and unaccountered-for usage, excessive mileage, poor driving and route planning, and irregular maintenance can result in unplanned vehicle breakdowns, shorten life span and customer dissatisfaction.
Investing in a reliable fleet management system with robust data capabilities offers both immediate and long-term advantages. It allows companies to leverage mileage and usage data, along with driver behavior tracking, for proactive vehicle and equipment servicing and maintenance planning. This, in turn, facilitates precise operations scheduling and capacity management. Moreover, tracking driver behavior enables intervention through training and incentives, boosting staff morale, reducing tire wear and tear, and curbing unnecessary fuel wastage.

Plant Manager at JMC Construction
"Since having the trackers on our vehicles and plant, productivity has increased during the day."
Compliance Manager at FDS
"We log into our ABAX tracker every morning – the rule at FDS is ‘it’s always on the screen’. Having the ABAX system installed has added great value to our company; it’s made us all much more efficient."
“Since the installation of the ABAX tracking system we have made substantial savings by cutting down on out of hours usage and therefore reducing risk of accidents and other driving penalties."
“Prior to the ABAX system we had no way of knowing where a piece of equipment had gone after being assigned to a driver. The tracking now allows us to monitor the whereabouts of these assets when assigned to a driver and a vehicle.”
Wrights Roofing Ltd
“Using the ABAX MINI allows us on a day-to-day basis to know exactly where that product is – that’s £10,000 worth of plant that we can keep an eye on.”
Red Van Plumbers
“It is a tool that allows us to find out exactly where our engineers are without having to interrupt them while they are working. If a customer calls to find out where the engineer is, we can use the tracker to give them an accurate time of arrival without having to contact the engineer and calling the customer back.”
Pro-Lifting UK Ltd
"I never knew there would be so many benefits from using a tracking system to help me improve multiple areas in my business."
director at East Midlands Contracting
"Now everything, from a big tractor down to the last power tool, has a tracker on it and we can basically see where all our kit is on the same screen, which has obvious major benefits!"
