Whether you're driving an HGV to a city centre store, or driving a minibus to collect a patient, many of the challenges faced are identical. After we showcased DriverNet to the NHS Innovation Agency we now look forward to launching trials in the social care sector, managing drivers in smarter ways and providing real time notifications to clients and families for a fully connected customer experience.
The SmartPass system trials fast tracks HGVs through the security clearance process in just ten seconds, saving on average two to three minutes of delays per arrival, removing the need for drivers to leave their cabs to check in. This converts into savings of around 30p per minute in driver and fuel costs and reducing C02 and NOx emissions - good news for boosting driver uptime and site productivity.
As part of our Department for Transport technology innovation grant, we launched DriverNet SmartPass system this week with Kuehne and Nagel at their Trafford Park depot. Trials are now live across their Whitbread supplier sites and distribution centres across the UK. The trial will run throughout May before we submit our findings back to the DfT’s innovation and science team.
We were recently awarded a Department for Transport T TRIG ( Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant ) to test and trial DriverNet’s SmartPass site entry system. Development is well under way with live testing scheduled to take place in mid to late May to measure the potential impact SmartPass can have on reducing queueing times and emissions outside customer sites.
We were invited to Telefonica’s HQ London to receive our first winners award after being selected as one of the top 5 tech start ups in the North of the UK. We are looking forward to join the Wayra accelerator in February 2017 and becoming part of the wider Telefonica Open future global start up community, which has helped 150 UK tech start ups secure investment since its launch in 2012.
