Vehicle tracking from Kinesis is being used to monitor a fleet of luxury chauffeur driven vehicles. Operated by Premiere Chauffeur Drive, the private hire fleet includes Rolls Royce, Bentley, Tesla and Mercedes and provides a range of services such as airport transfers, business travel and leisure trips; serving all of London’s five star hotels.
Offering an effective solution for vehicle tracking and fleet and driver management, Kinesis is helping Premiere Chauffeur Drive to boost customer service and radically improve the safety and security of passengers, drivers and cars. Kinesis delivers driver performance data, including speeding, harsh braking and accelerating and idling, which can be used to monitor and improve driver behaviour for health and safety initiatives and cost control.
“We have used vehicle tracking for a number of years to monitor the location of vehicles and provide timely updates and intelligence for our customers and partners,” commented Delina Hoxha, Manager at Premier Chauffer Drive. “Kinesis is an affordable solution and I cannot fault their customer service.”
Using GPS technology, Kinesis gives Premiere Chauffeur Drive comprehensive visibility of its regularly renewed fleet of seventy luxury vehicles. Updated every 30 seconds and displayed against an easy to interpret map screen, the live vehicle tracking helps Premiere Chauffeur Drive locate specific vehicles and deliver real time updates on hotel arrival times, airport pickups and business deadlines, without needing to interrupt the driver or passenger. The location intelligence provided by Kinesis can also be used to guide passengers to their vehicles, and as proof of service delivery.
Premier Chauffeur Drive also uses fuel cards from Kinesis’s sister operation UK Fuel Cards to reduce paperwork associated with credit card or expenses claims. Fuel card data integrated with Kinesis tracking can improve the management of fuel consumption with accurate MPG calculations potentially assisting in decreasing costs and environmental emissions.
Premiere Chauffeur Drive is a member of the Society of Golden Keys, also known as Les Clef D’Ors, the respected society of hotel concierge whose motto is ‘In Service Through Friendship’. The company also won the Silver award in the Chauffeur Operator of the Year (31+ vehicles) category of the 2016 Professional Driver QSi Awards. The award judges commented “Premiere Chauffeur Drive has a very specific niche – it delivers a high-end service to London customers, particularly five-star hotels. And it delivers quickly.”
