A South African global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions has secured a tender to supply a water service provider in Uganda with a comprehensive fleet management solution.

The water service provider operates an extensive fleet to fulfil its mandate of providing water for use in agriculture, rural industries, and tourism among others. It also coordinates the national development of water resources and provides effective planning and management for the water and sanitation sectors.

“The data provided by our telematics solution enables this service provider to optimise the utilisation of its fleet, manage drivers, reduce costs, and increase productivity.

"The benefits from effective mobile asset management are tangible and provide improvements that are sustainable,” says Gert Pretorius, the managing director of MiX Telematics Africa.

“Our premium fleet solution provides real-time insight, allowing the fleet manager to make informed decisions, with the aim of improving productivity and reducing operational expenses. This online platform processes data from multiple assets, creating customisable reports, graphs and dashboards that provide actionable intelligence.”
