Glencroft aims to save £100,000 on fuel

Groundwork contractor Glencroft expects to save more than £100,000 on its fuel bill following implementation of a web-based vehicle navigation and tracking service from Masternaut.
The Masternaut service uses satellite technology to establish the exact position of every vehicle in the Glencroft fleet providing managers with visibility of the workforce and vehicles. The service also delivers voiced turn-by-turn directions, real time traffic alerts and an alternative route option for unexpected incidents.  
 “By reducing unnecessary mileage we hope to reduce our annual fuel bill by half,” said John Duffy, Glencroft’s commercial director. “This is a projected year on year saving of £100,000 plus”. He continued, “The Masternaut service has also increased awareness of the environmental impact of our activities and drivers are more conscious of how and when they use their vehicles”.
