Quartix vehicle tracking cuts fuel costs for Toilets+

May 13, 2011 -- Quartix has equipped one of the United Kingdom’s major portable toilets providers with online vehicle tracking.

The real-time system is saving Toilets+ as much as £400 per month in fuel costs, cutting engine-idling times throughout its 40-vehicle fleet. 

Managing director Mick Bowman said: “Through the system we discovered some staff were reaching a site and leaving their vehicle’s engine running, often for very long periods.

“In fact, they are required to switch off and remove the ignition key on arrival.”

Currently, Toilets+ has 32 of its vehicles – mainly Mercedes Sprinter vans – equipped with the Quartix InfoPlus option, and plans to equip the remainder over coming months.

InfoPlus’s many real-time benefits include one-minute vehicle updates, tailored daily and weekly management reports,  real-time geofencing alerts, speeding and driver behaviour reports,  a vehicle route replay facility, a fleet management organiser, a system configuration control, and Google Maps with satellite view.

Toilets+ is particularly impressed with being able to guide vehicles to new sites using the Google mapping facility on the Quartix system.

“We also use the Quartix service to check drivers’ start and finish times to aid the monthly payroll. It is helpful for monitoring the bill from TFL for congestion charges as mistakes can be made,” Mr Bowman said.

Transparent pricing

Toilets+ first approached Quartix six years ago, following a very unhappy experience with a major telematics provider, now no longer trading.

Mick Bowman explained: “We like Quartix’s transparent pricing and approach, and have always found the system reliable and easy to use. Furthermore, Quartix’s after-sales service is extremely good.”

Andy Kirk, Quartix sales and marketing director, said: “Toilets+ is a highly professional organisation and we are pleased to know our telematics system is playing an important role in its continuing success.

“We look forward to working with Mick Bowman and his team for many years to come.”
