The Client

A major player operating in the construction industry, having various interests like Ready Mix Concrete, earth moving equipment and transport vehicles that are deployed in various construction sites, spread over varied locations, approached us for a solution. To monitor cost of operations and vehicles, they were looking for a real-time monitoring application with mobile integration.

Business Requirement

For comprehending the pain-points of the client, the Trinetra team sat down for a discussion with the them. The discussion helped the team find out that the client was seeking ways to save time and costs in operations. The solution needed, while looking after the assets, also helps to complete construction projects in time. The main focus to keep the profit margin in focus is that construction projects have apparently extremely thin margins.

Construction companies have fleets that are usually a mix of extremely expensive and heavy equipment. They need to track them and identify any fuel wastage is fuel theft is happening in their sites as fuel spend is a major cost. This means that devices like fuel level sensors and GPS tracking devices need to be deployed to address triggering of real-time critical alerts. It is also to make sure that vehicle drivers are behaving properly during the trips and work hours. The client needed to detect any sudden drop of fuel level to arrest any discrepancies.

Therefore, the client needed a tech solution (using construction industry telematics) that would address their pain points hampering their business to achieve their commercial objectives. Our team saw Trinetra’s telematics platform with mobile app integration mobile app can be customised to solve their problems.

Trinetra Solution

Construction companies need to control all mobile assets. But drivers need to be monitored, as often they are driving different vehicles at different locations. Trinetra’s asset monitoring platform has capabilities such as vehicle telemetry, monitoring sensors for different parameters, to remotely monitor fleets of various sizes and descriptions. By utilisation of the dashboard of the fleet management software, managers can continuously monitor location of various mobile assets. They can view instant alerts and report of the fuel level if discrepancies occur. It helps to reduce fuel wastage caused by bad driver habits. It also helps decrease instances of fuel theft by real-time detection.

The fleet monitoring platform satisfies the need for addressing real-time critical alerts required by the ready-mix concrete transport managers. By monitoring various parameters, they make sure that drivers/operators are behaving properly during the work hours with GPS enabled tracking. With customised GPS technology the fleet monitoring application (with real time details) installed by the client can easily identify if assets or equipment are within a construction site, or are being moved out, with geo-fencing.

The construction fleet management software generates Instant Alerts and reports to assist in maintenance of the moving assets and saving on fuel spend. Client can enjoy the 24/7 availability of a complete fleet management solution allowing 20-25% savings on fuel, maintenance, wear-and-tear costs and also protect assets from theft and misuse.
