Novatel Wireless, a leading global provider of solutions for Internet of Things, announced that the Ctrack fleet management solution has been extended to an additional 500 vans within the Anglian Water UK fleet. The vehicle tracking solution has achieved a host of benefits in terms of road safety, fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility. This latest agreement, brings the total number of vehicles monitored by Ctrack to 1,750, after the initial install in 2014 across 750 vehicles in Anglian Water’s treatments, waterworks and waste water operations.
In addition to vehicle tracking services, the Ctrack fleet management solution provides Anglian Water with a proprietary Driver Behavior Indicator and an online reporting tool.

A year after the initial installation the company achieved an almost 50% reduction in the number of driver incidents, such as speeding, harsh acceleration, braking and cornering. Other return on investment benefits have included a decrease in road accidents, an increase in fuel efficiency and a drop in carbon emissions.
