Extending the reach of telematics: MiX Telematics to announce two new partnerships at CV Show 2012
MiX Telematics is further reinforcing its position as an innovator within the world of telematics with the signing of two new partnership agreements, both of which will be launched at the forthcoming CV Show (Stand no: 3B74, NEC, Birmingham, 24-26 April 2012).
The agreements cover two key areas where telematics solutions can be deployed to generate considerable savings for operators and service providers alike; namely, insurance and contract hire. The companies involved with MiX Telematics in the new partnerships are brokers Towergate Insurance and contract hire firm Euroway.
"As the telematics industry continues to move towards maturity, it is important that we demonstrate new and innovative ways to further enhance the fuel and cost savings our operators are routinely achieving today," says Steve Coffin, Marketing & Operations Director for MiX Telematics.
"As well as improving fuel efficiency, our solutions can help reduce accident rates, minimise driveline wear and tear, and monitor the way in which drivers perform and vehicles are used. All these factors have a direct bearing on risk and the cost of operation and are therefore of great interest to insurers and contract hire companies. By working with our colleagues at Towergate Insurance and Euroway we have harnessed the power of telematics in sector-specific packages designed to generate savings and lower costs for all concerned."
Full details of the new services – Towergate Fleetcare+ for insurance and Fleetsure for contract hire – and the benefits they deliver will be presented at a press conference on the MiX Telematics CV Show stand (3B74) at 11.30am on Tuesday 24 April.
