Tachometer team looks to the future - News
A TYNESIDE business that has helped the transport and haulage industry track thousands of driving hours, mileage and fuel consumption is celebrating a quarter of a century of progress by diversifying into the training sector and investing in new technology.
Chartwise (UK) Ltd, based on Gateshead's Team Valley, has established itself as one of the transport industry's leading suppliers of tachograph data analysis.
And the business is gearing up for the next 25 years by adapting to changes in the transport industry and the needs of haulage firms, fleet operators and small businesses who operate vehicles.
Company chief Paul King took over Chartwise in 2010 with his father David after seeing the potential to use his online skills to develop the business.
Now, with the benefit of King's marketing expertise the business has grown further offering transport-related training designed to increase safety and ensure compliance with transport rules and regulations.
Says Paul King: "The technology we use to track vehicle movements is giving employers and fleet owners the right data to manage their transport fleet more effectively.
"In short, our detailed data analysis is allowing any business with a vehicle to manage it with the minimum of effort at the same time as saving on fuel, manpower costs and increasing the safety of the vehicle and its occupants."
The tracking devices allows users to track their individual vehicle mileage, pinpoint locations to building level and receive alerts when services or MOTs are due.
With many of today's lease vehicles having rigid annual mileage limits, the digital monitoring of mileage allows users to keep track of excess mileage.Author: Mike Torpey
