Secure document disposal ensured with vehicle tracking.

CMS Supatrak : 28 April, 2008  (Application Story)
SupaTrak vehicle tracking systems in use by Control Group as an added layer of protection for documents in transit to disposal locations.
Secure document disposal ensured with vehicle tracking.
SupaTrak, the leading vehicle tracking system developed by CMS Global Technologies of Swindon is now providing Control Group (UK) operations with an added layer of security.

Control Group is an office facilities company based in Milton Keynes and is currently using the system to monitor the collection, transport and delivery of customers’ goods in three of its four divisions: office relocations, document shredding and document archiving.

Simon Church, Senior Commercial & Sales Manager at Control Group, says the added layer of security it provides has boosted customer confidence and been instrumental in the winning of several new contracts, particularly in the area of document shredding, which until now many firms preferred to have carried out onsite.

“We are finding the SupaTrak useful across our business, whether on regular or one-off routes, and are planning to progressively fit the whole fleet with the system now that we can see the benefits CMS promised are being delivered,” he says.

“The transport of documents for shredding or archiving at our facilities around the country is a key part of our business, and although we have several security measures already in place to protect documents we believed that a good vehicle tracking system would add protection and value to our service.

“The MD pointed out a press article identifying SupaTrak and what it could do, and further research revealed it potentially met our requirements. The costs were clear and importantly CMS was happy to let us trial a few units so we could see it working ‘on the ground’. Fitting was simple, the system has proved reliable, and the after sales service is very good. In fact, it seems to be an ideal package for small and medium sized businesses.

“We thought we knew what we were buying, but in reality we are finding that SupaTrak is assisting the business in other areas as well. It’s great for locating lost drivers and is making a great contribution to improving driver productivity, as well as saving time and fuel.

“Currently we are also using the system to monitor fleet management costs, making random checks on the journey reports it provides and reviewing them to see where speed, route or other factors can be adjusted to reduce running, fuel and maintenance costs,” he adds.

As Control Group is now discovering, tracking is only part of this ultra-flexible system, which is currently being used by companies large and small across a range of business sectors for various purposes beyond simply knowing where vehicles are at any given moment.

With 60-second position updates to provide effective real-time tracking, the basic SupaTrak system also includes a comprehensive reporting function that enables users to see where their vehicles have been, when and at what speed. There is also a Post Code finder option for identifying new locations and the option to connect the system to satellite navigation, plus the option of full European mapping.

With low daily hire rates, no ties to long-term contracts and full backup support from CMS, it is not difficult to see why the simple-to-use SupaTrak has quickly become the preferred choice of many companies choosing a vehicle tracking system for the first time.

An online demonstration of SupaTrak and what it can do can be found at the CMS Supatrak web site.
