Stakeholder - Phantom Tracking Systems

Fleet tracking for UK construction companies


Saving fuel by reducing idling

Excessive idling wastes fuel (and consequently money) as well as being bad for the environment. By deploying a GPS fleet tracking system it is possible to quickly measure idling by detecting a lack of movement of the plant coupled with the ignition being switched on. Then corrective action can be taken with staff to ensure they reduce or completely eradicate idling.

As well as saving money on fuel costs, this will also reduce the wear-and-tear of plant and help to reduce maintenance costs.

Better utilisation of plant

By providing real-time information on how your plant is being used GPS tracking can ensure that it is being utilised at maximum efficiency. For example, geofencing an area on our system can highlight the construction site. If it has been estimated that it will require 3 truck loads and journeys per truck to clear debris away, but the real-time data is showing that it actually needs 5. This immediately identifies an issue for management to solve. And help future estimates.

By having this timely information, action can be taken that will ensure plant is being utilised as anticipated and money is saved on fuel costs and wear-and-tear.

Improved routing

GPS fleet tracking will also help to ensure that plant that has to travel regularly between fixed points uses the most optimum route. This ensures reduced fuel costs and reduced usage of your valuable and expensive plant.

Lower maintenance costs

It is well known that preventive maintenance is less costly and more efficient than the break/fix type. GPS tracking helps ensure this happens by providing real-time information on driving behavior. This data can then be regularly reviewed to ensure that company vehicles are looked after and dangerous costly driving is curbed and maintenance and servicing is carried out in a timely manner.

All of which helps to reduce maintenance costs as well as ensuring you maximise the time your plant is actually up and working.

Protecting your fleet investment

Construction companies invest a significant amount in their plant fleets. So, it makes good business sense that they do everything possible to maximise the effectiveness of this investment. GPS tracking can help and Phantom are able to provide a nationwide service to fit GPS tracking devices at your site at a time convenient to your working requirements.

Very soon after our second meeting with Phantom, it was clear that a deal would be made between County Car & Van Rental and Phantom. It was only left to negotiate to what level. Phantom are now our only vehicle tracker supplier taking precedence over existing vehicle tracker contracts.

Phantom arranged for County to take on a small number of units initially on a trial basis, he has been always readily contactable to assist with any queries and assisted with any development issues that County have requested.

I have nothing but praise to say about the team at Phantom and foresee a very happy partnership moving forward in the future between County Car & Van Rental and Phantom."

County Car & Van Rental

You will no doubt recall our original conversations earlier in the year and the fact that as a result we recently purchased x2 vehicle tracking devices for x2 of our new, replacement vans.

I just wanted to take this opportunity firstly to thank you personally for your initial advice & guidance with regard to purchasing this tracking system, but in particular I wanted to let you know how pleased and impressed we are with the performance and capabilities of the system which I have to say has by far exceeded our expectations.

The system has been most beneficial and is used on a daily basis to monitor and track the performance and progress of our vehicles in a positive way.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Phantom to anyone considering these requirements."
