South African-based fleet management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, MiX Telematics announced that global security group G4S has selected it to assist in modifying driver behaviour across their Cash Division in the UK.
The R4.6 billion company – which in August 2013 listed on the New York Stock Exchange –said this implementation will cover a further 1,500 vehicles throughout the UK.
The contract was awarded on the basis that the global player believes MiX’s products to be the gold standard for safety, improving efficiency and alleviating impact on the environment, said the JSE-listed company.
“For many years, MiX has helped G4S address the business-critical requirement of monitoring our Cash in Transit vehicles for security reasons,” says John Lennox, Operations Director for G4S Cash Solutions (UK).
“We are delighted to expand our partnership to now include MiX’s premium fleet management solution to replace a legacy system, and address our mission to increase driver safety and reduce our impact on the environment.
“We view this as a business-critical step and look forward to working together for many more years.”
G4S Cash Solutions (UK) Ltd is a globally integrated security company specialising in the provision of security products, services and solutions.
“Safe driving is a pressing issue throughout the industry, regardless of the sector, and oftentimes risky driver behaviour is the root cause of accidents,” says Chief Operating Officer for MiX, Charles Tasker.
“This also affects productivity and supply, creating a knock-on result which impedes any business. As a company that values safety, efficiency, security and compliance we’re pleased that our relationship with G4S continues to grow.”
