Contract win with Masternaut

Drainage and sewer renovation firm the Lanes Group has won one of the largest contracts in its 20-year history having incorporated Masternaut’s telematics fleet tracking solution, which it says constituted a key part of its tender.

The utility contract pitch brief was driven by KPI arrival times, so the firm had to demonstrate it could deliver a real-time combined tracking solution, for a business with over 10 million customers in a densely populated region of the UK. 

Alan Wallis, operations director, said “To meet the needs of this client, we required remote access to tracking analysis that showed vehicle arrival times and when the engineers were moving on to the next job.”

The Lanes Group operates a fleet of 570 vehicles from 21 depots across the UK, and needed to mobilise 420 fleet vehicles with Masternaut products with the capability to efficiently track individual vehicles.
