Barlows Electrics UK Limited, based in Malpas in Cheshire, is a major electrical contractor providing electrical installation and property maintenance services throughout the United Kingdom. They operate a mixed fleet of 180 vehicles comprising of Vauxhall Vivaros, Combos, Corsas, Astras, and Ford Transit Connects.
As a long-term customer, Barlows had operated with previous MiX solutions reporting into the FM-Web platform. The organization recently migrated to MiX Fleet Manager reporting into the new and improved DynaMiX platform, and is successfully operating with the new system. They rely on the solution to monitor vehicle locations, hours on site and, more recently, driver behavior.
Apart from helping them to manage their fleet operation with optimum efficiency, one of the ways the system has helped Barlows to achieve financial results is by providing them with an accurate base to bill for the number of hours spent on a customer’s site. Barlows estimates that this saves them between £10,000 and £20,000 each year.
MiX Fleet Manager is very important in helping us to manage our vehicles and our drivers… It gives us tighter control of our fleet and enables us to make sensible decisions using solid accurate data.- Mark Barlow, Fleet Manager
