Telematics Technology Achieves Early Success


As of 1st April this year all DFC Contract Hire vehicles now include RAC Telematics Premium Pack as standard. This recent investment by DFC has been warmly welcomed by both new and existing customers and it is already proving hugely popular, especially with businesses who operate a fleet of vehicles.


For businesses worrying about fuel costs, driver behaviour affecting mpg and drivers using vehicles for personal use during business hours, RAC Telematics is a must. The Premium Pack which is fitted in all vehicles as standard includes; fitment of smart box unit and software setup, breakdown cover (fault and non-fault), accident management, GPS monitoring live mileage recordings on all vehicles and live diagnostic alerts.


However for only a small monthly fee customers have the option to upgrade to the Premium Plus package where they will have complete access to their own customisable portal. This package includes; 24/7 tracking in real time, geo fencing, driver risk management, business/personal mileage reports, route planning history, fuel efficiency reports plus many more excellent features.


Even in the short space of time since the product was launched customers have already noticed significant savings. Early research has found that there has been a 15% reduction in overtime claims, up to 20% savings on insurance, 15%-20% savings on fuel and a 10%-15% increase in operational efficiency. These results are truly astounding and such success was not predicted at this early stage.


DFC, CEO, Uel Butler, said, “The response from all our customers, in regards to this new technology has been truly astonishing. When we decided to develop this partnership with the RAC, we were building for the future and did not anticipate such success at this initial stage. Having Telematics fitted on my own car as well as our company cars, I can see the savings first hand and I believe that over the coming months the product will continue go from strength to strength.


At DFC our goal over the years has always remained the same- To be the no.1 independent vehicle management company that our customers are proud to be part of. This new vehicle technology will help us sustain that focus and we can remain as the one stop motoring solution for all our business and personal customers. ”
