Bell Group, the leading provider of commercial, industrial and public sector decorating services, is using Ctrack’s tracking system in 235 vans operating nationwide

Bell Group, the leading provider of commercial, industrial and public sector decorating services, has awarded a contract extension to Ctrack for the provision of an advanced vehicle tracking solution. Under the agreement, Ctrack’s tracking system will be used across 235 vans operating nationwide, which has already resulted in 20 per cent reduction in fuel usage and an 8 per cent cut in insurance premiums.

Bell Group has been using the Ctrack system for the past seven years having originally fitted the solution to support the planned growth of the company. It has been used to provide greater visibility and control over the van fleet that operates from the company’s head office in Glasgow and network of 25 offices across the UK.

Running a cost efficient fleet has been a key objective for Bell Group and the Ctrack system has helped the company to make significant savings in a number of operational areas. For example, the ability to track the whereabouts of vehicles has enabled the effective deployment of mobile resources to customer sites as well reduce unauthorised personal usage contributing to a substantial reduction in fuel overheads.

Ian Henderson, Group Managing Director at Bell Group commented: “The Ctrack system has allowed us to address key fleet issues faced by the company. In the current economic climate, the optimisation of mobile resources is paramount to a successful business and ensures costs are kept under control whilst enhancing our service to valued customers. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Ctrack to maintain fleet performance and identify additional opportunities moving forward.”

Alastair Fergus, Regional Manager for Scotland at Ctrack said: “Longstanding relationships with companies such as Bell Group demonstrate the lasting value we can deliver to fleet operations. We work closely with our customers to create vehicle tracking and resource management solutions that meet specific requirements and help overcome real business challenges.”
