Situation: FPH needed fast implementation of an innovative GPS fleet management solution 

FPH found themselves in the midst of many strong industry changes along with an increased workload. They needed a flexible and innovative GPS fleet management solution that would help them achieve compliance throughout their business, including contracts.

It was essential that a solution could be implemented quickly and easily across their team of independent contractors.

Response: Fast implementation of mobile management app across team of contractors

FPH chose the ConnectTrak GPS fleet management software platform and mobile management application from Connect Fleet. With features such as tracking and geofencing capabilities directly in the app, FPH were confident that the solution could easily manage vehicles at the peak of their requirements, up to 400 trucks—200 trucks each day and night shift.

“We chose Connect Fleet’s mobile management app as it matched our operational requirements and we could easily integrate it with our existing systems through the open API.”
Chris West, Managing Director, Fleet Plant Hire.

FPH were given access to Connect Fleet’s open API so that the ConnectTrak platform could be integrated with FPH’s internally-built systems. FPH uses the raw data extracted from the app, to their advantage.

Outcome: Improved project management, compliance, business efficiency and site safety

The fast implementation of the app to FPH’s contractors meant that work continued without delay, while maintaining the high level of customer service expected of them.

Since implementing the ConnectTrak GPS fleet management solution, FPH have been using alerts and geofencing features in the app to improve project management, business efficiency, meet compliance, and ensure site safety.

FPH now have greater transparency over their projects and operations—such as visibility over trucks entering certain locations or long waiting periods occurring on site. Their fleet data is used to compare notes with contractors, can be shared with their clients, and can be used to mitigate future issues.

With improved location awareness, geofencing and GPS alerts established, FPH is in a better position to improve safety and compliance, such as the ability to set up exclusion zones in advance and breach reporting.

“The app means we can manage and use the data in a way that benefits our requirements—it basically means that we can do more.”
Jade Brooks, Systems & Compliance Manager, Fleet Plant Hire.
