MiX Telematics, a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, has announced that its channel partner in East Africa, A&S Electronics, has been awarded a tender to supply a water services provider in Uganda with a comprehensive fleet management solution.

This customer operates an extensive fleet to fulfil its mandate of providing water for use in agriculture, rural industries and tourism, among others. It also coordinates the national development of water resources and provides effective planning and management for the water and sanitation sectors.

“The data provided by our telematics solution enables this service provider to optimise the utilisation of its fleet, manage drivers, reduce costs, and increase productivity,” says Gert Pretorius, managing director of MiX Telematics Africa. “The benefits derived from effective mobile asset management are tangible, and provide improvements which are sustainable.

“Our premium fleet solution provides real-time insight, allowing the fleet manager to make informed decisions with the aim of improving productivity and reducing operational expenses. This online platform processes data from multiple assets, creating customisable reports, graphs and dashboards that provide actionable intelligence.”

Given today’s demands, fleet management is essential for utility companies that undertake the critical task of delivering natural resources to consumers. MiX Telematics partners with various companies in the service and utility industry around the world in order to help them adhere to ever-changing government and customer compliance demands.
