An Post, today announced that Fleetmatics as their trusted fleet management provider following a public tender process. The agreement supports over 900 An Post vehicles across Ireland for a four-year term.
The plan is that the An Post vehicles will be installed with the Fleetmatics REVEAL+ fleet management solution designed to drive cost savings and improve efficiency by enabling enterprise customers with larger fleets, such as An Post, to manage complex organisational structures and large numbers of users, as well as to deliver executive level business intelligence across the entire organisation.
“An Post operates one of the largest fleets in Ireland, providing postal services across the country every day, so we really needed a solution that was scalable and efficient,” said Paula Butler, Head of Procurement at An Post. “The powerful combination of Fleetmatics’ solutions –REVEAL+ and Fuel Card integration – helps us stay connected to our drivers in real-time, comply with important regulatory requirements and meet our customers’ needs with speed and accuracy.”
Employing over 9,000 people, An Post is a major commercial organisation offering a wide range of services beyond the postal services for which the firm is best known, which also include financial services, communication and retail. An Post processes and delivers more than 2.5 million items of mail to more than 2 million addresses using a road fleet of over 2,700 vehicles.
“This partnership is especially meaningful given that Fleetmatics has been an Irish company from day one, and we employ hundreds of the country’s best and brightest,” said Jill Ward, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fleetmatics. “This is our largest contract to date in Ireland, and we’re honored that An Post will deploy our cloud-based software to help improve efficiency, drive down costs and improve customer care throughout the organisation.”
In related news, Fleetmatics also announced a deal with TNT Crane & Riggings, one of the nation’s premier lifting services provider, to deploy Fleetmatics REVEAL+ across its fleet of 575 vehicles.
