Stakeholder - Phantom Tracking Systems

On track of the times: Realise the potential of your company fleet


Everyone these days knows that the speed at which we are rocketing into the digital age is astronomical. Modern technology has opened up to us an unending expanse of possibilities both in our day-to-day lives and within the world of industry, and to be successful in either it is necessary to keep on track with the ever-transforming options at our fingertips.

The construction industry in particular is morphing and evolving with every passing day, and as technology advances so does the potential for what we can create within this developing realm. Modern developments blooming from the land below are tributes to tomorrow’s world and demonstrate how the professionals in the business today are rapidly leaving yesterday’s slower and less efficient ways behind.

The construction industry has seen its fastest growth in new orders in almost a year according to a survey in December, despite a weaker pound meaning higher priced materials. Housebuilding has been the main contributor to this growth since last January, and could the advances in technology have helped along the way?

It most certainly could have, with new developers able to entice prospective buyers with astoundingly life like artists’ impressions of both homes and estates which are not yet a single brick on the ground, and it is becoming more and more common for people to buy homes “off plan”. In a bid to meet the ever growing demand for new homes, the construction industry for these developments is embracing all kinds of emerging technologies, from the way that plans are made digitally to homebuyers being able to choose their “virtual kitchen” options from a tablet computer and play around with different combinations.

So how has the building of more homes affected other areas?

With a growing population increasing the demand for homes, we are also seeing more traffic on our roads. Motor traffic rose by 1.4 percent from 2015 to 2016 and as our building industries get smarter, so do our cars – with many now having features such as front radar systems to decrease the likelihood of road traffic accidents.

But we’re not quite ready for flying cars, just yet. Your company fleet is still good old fashioned tyres on tarmac, but that’s not to say there isn’t a way to get technical and ensure you are using all the digital world has to offer you to maximise your business potential, and save time and money – all the while increasing the security of your fleet and your valuable drivers.

But as the demand for housing rises and therefore the need for construction, so does the potential for damage to the environment – and after all, what good is construction if we aren’t preserving the environment on which we wish to build? As a company with a fleet of vehicles, it becomes ever more important to find the most fuel efficient routes for your drivers, monitor driver behaviour such as speeding, and give them the heads up to divert away from upcoming traffic to avoid crawling along and pumping out more CO2. Tracking systems are smart enough to factor in ways that you can directly get messages to those at the wheel of your vehicles quickly and with ease. From an economic perspective, saving fuel also means saving money, making the advantages twofold.

Being able to pin point the location and journey of your vehicle means complete control and reassurance when it comes to knowing everyone is running on time in a modern world where time is most certainly money. Tracking also means you can collect historical data from previous journeys to continually aim for better in the long term.

The construction industry is now urgently building homes to meet the demand, all the while endeavouring to do this as cost effectively as possible, and rising technology is certainly helping in this mission. If you are also looking for ways to incorporate technology into your company in order to keep with the times and meet demand, call 0161 476 4050 to discuss how a Phantom tracking system can benefit you.

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."
