How It Works
- Works automatically – employee is not able to choose when (or if) they are tracked.
- Very accurate information – distances measured every 5 seconds, 15 second GPS position updates and screens updated every 60 seconds.
- Tracks all movements – Business, Private, Passenger and Walking journeys (i.e. no gaps in the information during the working day).
- Can be used in any vehicle (including the ‘Grey Fleet’).
- Manages abuse – records more than 40 events and settings on the smartphone (or rugged device), and time is managed independently from what appears on the phone.
- Minimises battery drain – proprietary technology.
- Privacy is fully automated – no employee or union issues.

- An employee is paid the National Average wage of £27,200 per annum (2011). They do a 40 hour week.
- Allowing for NI contributions and benefits of 5% their hourly cost is (just over) £15.00 per hour.
- At Time and a Half their hourly cost for overtime is £22.50.
- They drive 1,000 miles a month.
- Company vehicles average 30 MPG. Fuel costs £1.45 per litre.
- If the employee uses their own vehicle (aka the 'Grey Fleet') they are paid the standard AMAP rate of £0.45p per mile.
- The employee only does a 38 hour week – they regularly start late or end early. Getting them to do a full week's work (40 hours) saves the company £130.00 per month.
- The employee rounds their overtime claims up by 2 hours per week. Paying the right amount of overtime saves the company £195.00 per month.
- The employee is only 80% productive – they waste time during the day. Improving their productivity by only 5% to 85% saves the company £133.50 per month.
- 10% of the mileage the employee does in a company vehicle is non-productive (e.g. private journeys). Avoiding this non-productive mileage saves the company £22.00 per month in fuel.
