Vehicle tracking provider DigiCore (www.digicore.co.uk), has secured a new contract with Wessex Water, the regional water and sewage treatment business. Initially, 86 vans will be fitted with DigiCore’s C-track vehicle tracking and fleet management system, with a view to extending the solution across Wessex Water’s field service operations.

Wessex Water selected the server-based C-track system because it possessed excellent open system architecture compared with other leading vehicle tracking products. Because of the added functionality of C-track and its ability to integrate with other third-party reporting and management systems, the solution will enable the company to tackle existing and future tracking and fleet management needs.

The vehicle tracking solution will initially be used to manage the repairs and maintenance section of Wessex Water Networks’ field service staff. Real-time positional data will be relayed via plasma screens so office-based employees can monitor the exact whereabouts and status of the mobile service teams. This information will enable Wessex Water to monitor resource availability and better control the work allocation process, to reduce operating costs and improve customer service levels through faster response times.

Sarah McBride, Regional Scheduling Manager at Wessex Water commented: “C-track provides a tracking tool that has the flexibility and functionality to adapt to our changing fleet management needs. This system will offer added insight that will enable Wessex Water Networks to achieve considerable business and operational benefits.”

Tom O’Connor, Managing Director of DigiCore Ltd said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Wessex Water and provide innovative, industry-leading technology and vehicle tracking expertise. DigiCore has a proven track-record within the utility sector and our contract with Wessex Water further underlines our ability to deliver effective vehicle tracking solutions.”

C-track is a sophisticated fleet management system that adopts the latest technology to provide a comprehensive real-time vehicle management tool. This proven solution provides vital information about mobile assets and workforce, and offers a scaleable mobile solution that meets the complex needs of car, van and commercial vehicle fleet operators.
