The telematics program has helped Grupo Crío garner two big wins: improved driver safety and fuel savings.
At the beginning of the program, only 30% of the fleet’s drivers received the bonus
compensation for good driving practices. Now, almost 100% of the drivers achieve
the safe driving bonus.
At first there was some reluctance by some part of drivers, but now everyone understands that this is an improvement.
“In fact, since the program was established we have had 0 accidents,” says Fleet Manager Luis Enrique Gonzalez.
“I would recommend Geotab’s fleet management solutions to any company that has vehicles because it makes it possible
to significantly improve the safety of drivers. The more safe drivers there are on the road, the better for everyone,” says
Fleet Manager Luis Enrique Gonzalez.
The benefits even extended to Human Resources. Grupo Crío saw
reductions in absenteeism, turnover, and improved the working
environment, as workers now feel more connected to the
values of the company.
In addition to the improvement in driving behavior,
Grupo Crío has been able to achieve 13% savings on
fuel and improve care of the overall condition of fleet
vehicles. Return on investment (ROI) for the telematics
solutions was fast. In seven months, Grupo Crío has
already managed to amortize the investment.
Currently, 130 vehicles are equipped with telematics
technology, but the next objective is to equip the
entire fleet. Grupo Crío’s objective is to maintain a
zero accident rate. Telematics has supported
management and decision-making through rich,
accurate data and customized reporting. As Grupo Crío’s
Fleet Manager states, “Geotab’s fleet management
solutions offers a wide visibility of vehicles and this
helps us to make the right decisions.”
