Commercial fleet services firm Fraikin UK has partnered with Samsara to use real-time data to help customers improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of their connected fleets.

Fraikin UK has enlisted Samsara as a preferred partner to provide data-driven services to its customers that identify opportunities to improve driver efficiency and behaviour.

Mike Hemming, technology champion at Fraikin UK says: “Connected vehicle data, when interpreted in the right way, can be used to achieve meaningful efficiency gains and cost benefits for our customers.

“However, visibility into this data is often both limited and complex to understand. With Samsara as our preferred supplier, our customers will be able to maximise the benefits of actionable data coming from their connected vehicles.”

Samsara’s Connected Operations Platform collects data including distance travelled, rate of speed, fuel efficiency, diagnostic fault codes and distracted driving indicators.

The platform gives real-time visibility into this information which Fraiken UK says can transform fleet operations by streamlining billing, reducing vehicle downtime and preventing accidents. Using information about driver behaviour, vehicle maintenance and vehicle utilization, Fraikin can provide its customers with tailored analysis and recommendations designed to increase operational efficiency.

Philip van der Wilt, vice president of EMEA at Samsara, added: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Fraikin UK to provide them with a proactive and data-driven approach to operational efficiency."
