Roger Wood, Director of Argus Security Systems Limited, said: “Installing the Remote Asset Management vehicle tracking system just a couple of months ago has been one of the best business decisions we’ve made. It is already paying for itself, which means I’m essentially getting it for free!”
“We wanted to check our engineers timesheets, as an auditable process to ensure that we were making correct payments for the time that was actually being worked. We’ve also had some issues in the past where a customer disputed the time we’d spent on site and needed to have a way of proving it in black and white and finally we were concerned about the major change in the Inland Revenue’s van benefit charge and how it would affect both us and our employees.”
“Of all the systems we saw initially, the Remote Asset Management system had the easiest and most intuitive user interface. We’re an SME and every penny does count, so the fact that we could use the system with no upfront costs and that it started to save us money from day one, helped our cash flow immensely.
“We’re now happy that the timesheets are accurate and thanks to the increased visibility that the system gives us, we’re able to plan better routes and easily locate the closest engineer to a job within a matter of seconds. This has saved us money on wasted fuel and phone calls. We’re a safety conscious company too, so it helps that we’re not disturbing the drivers whilst they’re on the road,” said Wood.
“We were also very concerned about the changes to the Van Benefit tax, in which we need to prove that a vehicle is not being used for private mileage in or outside of work time. To protect ourselves and our employees, we are now able to provide a declaration from the Remote Asset Management system showing that the vehicles were not moved at the end of the day. We couldn’t have proven that conclusively in any other way.”
