TomTom Work, the business-to-business division of TomTom, has won a contract to supply a vehicle navigation and tracking solution covering 1500 vehicles operated by Scotia Gas Network (SGN).
SGN supplies 5.7 million homes and businesses across south east England and throughout Scotland.
The system, which will be progressively rolled out over 18 months, is expected to improve call-out response times; eliminate unnecessary travel leading to reduced fuel usage and a lower environmental impact; and protect assets and aid recovery should a vehicle be stolen.
The connected navigation solution being provided by TomTom Work is based on each vehicle being fitted with their Link 300 vehicle tracking device and a GO satellite navigation screen.
Malcolm Russell, director of operations at SGN, says: “We selected the TomTom Work solution because of its ease of use and implementation in a fleet of our size. It will be of great help to our control room staff in responding more effectively to customer calls and it will improve the safety of our engineers when driving between jobs.”
