National utilities contractor T&K Gallagher is seeing big results after working with Track King to install the award-winning Trakm8 RH600 4G telematics camera across its fleet.

The cameras have been installed in more than 500 of the company’s LCVs and HGVs, allowing driver behaviour to be monitored and analysed.

Since then the company has also seen instances of speeding decrease by 35% and a substantial reduction in fuel costs due to drivers adopting a smoother driving style.

Accidents involving the company’s vehicles are also down by 39%.

Sam Atherton, Director at Gallagher, said, “We are delighted with the results the Trakm8 RH600 is delivering.”

Track King carried out the installation of the RH600 devices and provides ongoing support to Gallagher. The company has implemented speeding league tables and introduced a points-based system. Employees who receive points undergo training to help them reduce the frequency of speeding events.

Sam added, “Track King knows our business really well, and has helped us to get the most out of this new technology. The ability to easily analyse driver behaviour against a range of metrics enables us to quickly intervene when there is an issue. This helps us to reduce the risk of an accident for our colleagues and for other road users. Alongside health and safety, improved driver behaviour has a positive impact on customer satisfaction. Our colleagues are ambassadors for our business, so better driving helps them to leave a good impression on our clients.”
