Praise in the Press for iBox Technology's Telematics Systems

drainInteresting piece about one of our clients, UKDN, in the WalesOnline business section. UKDN - or the UK Drainage Network, to give them their full name - are a fast-expanding company specialising in drainage jobs of all sizes, from domestic blockages to contracts with water companies. UKDN boss Bob Gallagher told Wales Online that their success was, in part, down to their use of technology. And he singled out iBox technology as a key contributor. He said: 

“Using cost-saving technology like “no dig” techniques with materials provided by ER Solutions, through to directing the nearest vehicle to the nearest job by way of a state-of-the-art telematics tracker system supplied and fitted by
IBOX technology are innovations that help reduce our costs. It means the savings are passed through to our customers and wherever the drainage incident is managed from, customers can be assured that the very latest drainage techniques are being employed to minimise the cost, inconvenience and ensure completion on time.”

New Version of iBox technology's 'live' Can-bus winning orders

Sales of our unique 'live' Can-bus device are exceeding our expectations. Customers are telling us that they like the fact it delivers 'today's data - today'. Steve Green has talked about it in detail in a new Press Release. He says: 

“As far as we aware, ours is the only system that gives you live data, connecting the cab to the manager’s office in real time. With our live interface it’s all there for you. If you click on the icon or link for a particular vehicle it will show you the fuel consumption, total fuel used, the average speed, its location, everything you need to know.

A transport manager can take a look at this and see, for instance, that a driver has made six harsh braking manoeuvres in the space of half an hour. He can ring the driver up immediately to find out if there’s a problem.

It still gives the fleet manager the option of generating a weekly report and will provide him or her with a plethora of information. But the difference is that, rather than waiting for the start of a new week to analyse last week’s data, we provide immediate information. We provide today’s data, today.”
