During an initial trial, the company achieved a 27% reduction in fuel costs only over a 6-month period. After the initial installation in the first 105 vehicles, Avbob fitted the solution into another 100 vehicles within a 12-month period. The last phase comprised the remaining 400 vehicles, which was completed 60 days following the completion of the second phase. The installations happened at around 130 branches across the country.
The Hyper Auto bureau services ensured that all information from the fleet management solutions was utilised in the correct manner, which contributed quite considerably on a continuous basis.
Since the implementation, Avbob has witnessed a drastic reduction in fuel consumption and maintenance costs. The number of kilometres travelled in the vehicles has also reduced due the number of systems that were put in place to ensure the correct management of vehicles. Avbob has been able to optimise its fleet thereby decreasing the down time of vehicles for maintenance and other reasons.
The Hyper Auto fleet management solution has proved valuable due to the real-time data provided on both our vehicle and driver performance. “We have been able to correct poor driver behaviour by providing training for our staff,” explains Hugo Broodryk, Manager Fleet at Avbob. “We are also able to consistently review the fleet’s performance to ensure we maximise our investment.
Avbob is very satisfied with the solutions provided and implemented by Hyper Auto. We have witnessed the reduction of costs pertaining to our overall fleet and a great improvement in driver behaviour,” concludes Hugo Broodryk.
