Aug. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Trimble announced today that it will provide its Fleet Management and Driver Safety solutions to Shred-it, a leading secure document destruction company.

Deployed across its UK fleet, the Trimble solutions will provide Shred-it’s Customer Service Managers with the insight needed to more efficiently manage fleet utilisation, fuel consumption and driver safety.

Trimble® Fleet Management and Driver Safety will be rolled out as part of the Zurich Fleet Intelligence programme which offers a complete solution, combining vehicle telematics technology, insightful reporting, driver development tools and support from Zurich’s risk engineering and underwriting experts.  Shred-it sought a long-term solution that would help deliver a higher level of security to its customers through vehicle location tracking, and would enable the company to achieve lower insurance premiums, save fuel and reduce vehicle crashes.  

Trimble GeoManager Driver Safety will allow Shred-it Customer Service Managers to monitor driving behaviour and aggressive manoeuvres, such as hard acceleration, braking, turns and speed. With this data at hand, recommendations on training can be made for individual drivers, which can result in fewer crashes and liability management. In addition, Trimble GeoManager will be deployed to provide real-time visibility on all day-to-day fleet operations, enabling managers to identify, manage and improve key areas such as vehicle utilisation, maintenance planning and customer service.

“Shred-it’s UK business services over 17,000 customers, and with the company consistently striving to meet and exceed customer expectations, streamlining business processes with the best technology available to support this was essential,” said Nick Mitchell, vice president of Global Sales for Trimble’s Field Service Management Division. “Trimble will equip 108 vehicles and with the solutions deployed Shred-it will be able to accurately report on and manage all aspects of its fleet down to individual drivers, which can lead to increased productivity, driver safety and reduced operational costs.”

“Maintaining the security of our customers’ confidential material, driving safely and  improving productivity is of paramount importance to us,” said John Gavin, Project and Standards Lead for UK Operations Support at Shred-it.  “We considered a number of providers to equip us with a long-term solution but working with Trimble was the natural first choice. We were particularly impressed by the driver safety in-vehicle hardware that alerts drivers to behaviours outside set guidelines. This has proven beneficial to accurately measure and mitigate fleet safety risks.”
