Sivyer, whose fleet of tippers, grabs and volumetric concrete trucks collect and recycle materials from many of London’s biggest construction sites, has deployed the latest fleet management software from Freeway Fleet Systems. Sivyer selected Freeway as it offered an all-in-one solution for fleet and workshop management, handling both vehicles and plant.
One on the longest established waste and materials management companies in the UK, Sivyer has played a key role in recycling materials from the Olympic site, Crossrail, Thames Tideway and the Northern Line extension. With headquarters in Charlton, South East London, Sivyer collect construction waste for processing at recycling facilities across the capital.
The Freeway software is an asset management system that replaces paper records and reports for the fleet of 110 vehicles and around 20 items of plant. Prior to implementing Freeway there was very limited visibility on the costs of running the fleet and the software was chosen to form a basis for modernisation of fleet management.
“With Freeway we have not only eliminated a lot of cumbersome paperwork but we are now collecting useful data on the fleet and plant,” says Wendy Baxter, Fleet Coordinator. “That means we can provide management with a real insight into performance and costs, right down to individual parts and the database is also web-accessible and that ensures corporate visibility.
Freeway is a great auditing tool allowing us to ensure records are complete and correct, plus it’s really useful for recording events and pre-planning. The next stage is to automate the workshop and we are planning to bring in Freeway’s mobile apps for engineering worksheets and inspections – something that will be really useful for the DVSA Earned Recognition scheme.”
“We looked at a number of systems and nothing provided the scope offered by Freeway and we think it is a very good overall package for any fleet operator.” Adds Baxter. “The Freeway team are very supportive and reactive, listening to our needs and are always willing to adapt and develop the system.”
