Maintenance and servicing for the plumbing and heating industry
Prevent unexpected downtime swiftly and professionally
Through harsh braking, excessive mileage, and sporadic vehicle maintenance, you can rack up extensive bills that hit your bottom line – and reduce customer satisfaction as breakdowns are more likely when driver behaviour is poor.
Investing in a reliable and data-led tracking system for your plumbing business can provide a solution that yields both immediate and long-term benefits. By tracking driver behaviour, you can intervene proactively to schedule training and incentivise better driving for those who are reported as flagging.
- Schedule maintenance reminders
- Get usage logs for vans sent directly to you
- Know where all your vehicles are at all times
- Calculate service and maintenance based on actual usage, not just running time
“ABAX are used to verify timesheets and to make sure the employees are on the right sites, and to check vehicles are not being used excessively outside work hours. Financially it’s helped me hugely to avoid vehicle misuse and to make sure the wages are paid correctly and for work that’s actually been done”

"As we could not previously practically fit a vehicle tracker onto a rotovator or a power drill, we have always relied on our warehouse manager booking the smaller machinery plus power tools ‘in’ and ‘out’ with pen and paper which was not an ideal or robust system. 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!”
