Main Electrical boosts fleet performance with Ctrack

Main Electrical, an electrical engineering company based in Sheffield, has achieved significant improvements in fleet performance and efficiency just a year after installing a vehicle tracking solution from Ctrack. Since adopting Ctrack Online, a web-based tracking tool, across 17 vans used by its team of electricians the company has reduced labour costs by 12 per cent and fuel usage by 15 per cent, while increasing the productivity of mobile resources.

Main Electrical has used Ctrack Online’s comprehensive reporting package to better monitor working hours and automate timesheets. This has not only streamlined payroll processes, but also ensured that the number of hours booked by staff accurately reflects actual hours worked, resulting in a saving of 12 per cent. The company has also witnessed a substantial drop in private mileage, which has helped achieve fuel savings of 15 per cent since the installation of the vehicle tracking system.

The added visibility and control provided by Ctrack Online means Main Electrical has been able to boost the productivity of electricians in the field. By better managing resource from the company’s head office in Halfway, Sheffield, it has been able to enhance the service provided to a wide range of commercial, domestic and public sector clients with an increase in the time spent on site.

Ted Willers, Managing Director of Main Electrical commented: “Since using Ctrack Online to monitor our van fleet, we have achieved significant savings in both labour and fuel costs, as well as boosting the productivity of our mobile resources. We are committed to providing total professionalism and the highest quality of workmanship, so the tracking tool is helping us meet these requirements in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible.”

John Wisdom, Managing Director of Ctrack said: “Our proven tracking solutions are delivering a wide range of business and operational benefits. Not only are they helping companies to operate efficiently, but also ensure they are achieving high levels of productivity, compliance and customer service. As a result, we are working with an increasing number of fleet operators as their preferred telematics partner.”
