Trimble Rewarded for IT Innovation at Prestigious Greenfleet Awards



Oct 22, 2012

Trimble is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious GreenFleet Award for IT Innovation.

Taking place at the Emirates Stadium, London last Thursday, Trimble was named the winner beating off fierce competition from the likes of Masternaut, GreenRoad, Cordic and OWL (Optimised Waste Logistics).

Trimble technology was commended for its fleet management innovation including vehicle diagnostics that provide real-time diagnostic information on driver behaviour, vehicle condition, faults, fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.

“Trimble solutions have helped our fleet and field service customers achieve fantastic results, enabling reduced emissions and supporting them in reaching their carbon footprint reduction goals,” said Mark Forrest, general manager, Trimble Field Service Management. “We are delighted to have had this innovation recognised by GreenFleet and proud to have taken home the award.”

Leading animal welfare charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) recently deployed Trimble technology to save more than £100,000, become more environmentally friendly and improve its services. The charity calculated that it could save a staggering 80,000 litres in fuel annually for its fleet of 750 vehicles and will now be saving around 60,500kg in CO2 emissions, with further savings per vehicle expected through eliminating engine idling.
