Telematics and fleet management solutions provider CybIT has announced a£50,000 order from Barking and Dagenham LBC to provide vehicle tracking and fleet management capabilities to its fleet of minibuses used on a daily basis to take special needs children to school and provide transport assistance to the elderly.

For the first time, this will enable transport managers to track the location of the

vehicles and manage their routing via the internet in real-time to provide

duty of care to passengers and give parents and carers up-to-the-minute

information.

Graham Old, passenger transport manager for Barking and Dagenham LBC,

said: 'Barking and Dagenham Council is dedicated to providing a safe,

reliable, cost effective and customer focused service to users of our

transport services. More than 600 passengers use our service, with vehicles

completing more than 50 routes each day.

'By using CybIT's telematics and fleet management solution we will be able

to track the location of our vehicles so that we can ensure passengers'

safety and maximise the vehicles' usage. Barking and Dagenham Council is

also working to create a greener, cleaner and safer borough. Through the

software's street level mapping we can help our drivers use the most

efficient routes.'

The order from Barking and Dagenham follows CybIT's recent

acquisition of Fleetstar, the Trafficmaster subsidiary.
