MiX Telematics clinches BG Group contract
Birmingham (UK), February 16, 2010
MiX Telematics, a global provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management products and services, has been appointed as the sole supplier of vehicle telematics systems to BG Group for its world-wide vehicle fleet.
The solution will see data recorded by MiX Telematics' Fleet Manager system analysed and used to provide BG Group with a comprehensive, managed service primarily focused on improving driver safety, said a senior official.
'Prior to securing this major fleet management contract, MiX Telematics and BG Group spent a number of years working together on a variety of individual projects,' remarked Terry Buzer, managing director for MiX Telematics (Europe).
'This enabled us to demonstrate our ability to develop bespoke solutions and deliver them into multi-national operations, both of which were key factors for BG Group when it came to seeking a suitable global partner,' he added.
Buzer said in order to maximise the benefits to BG Group, MiX Telematics will leverage the unique skill-sets, services and experience of SafeDrive International, a wholly owned MiX Telematics subsidiary.
The SafeDrive solution has assisted personnel in almost all of the major oil and gas producing companies to increase awareness, improve driving style, reduce accidents and ultimately save lives, he explained.
MiX Telematics’ Fleet Manager system gathers a broad range of data to give a comprehensive overview of driver and vehicle performance and all information is available on-line through a secure web portal, FM-Web.
To ensure the value of this information is maximised, BG Group has opted for MiX Telematics’ managed service solution.
This allows BG Group locations to enjoy the added benefit of a dedicated team of MiX Telematics consultants to help identify and manage trends pertaining to all aspects of fleet management, including driver safety, performance optimisation and vehicle utilisation.-TradeArabia News Service
