Lightfoot® – The unique in-cab driver efficiency system
Ashwoods Lightfoot Ltd has launched a new option to its revolutionary in-cab driver efficiency product, Lightfoot. Following feedback from customers, Ashwoods is now offering Lightfoot with the option of a new tracking facility. The additional option means that fleet managers will be able to enjoy all the advantages of Lightfoot’s unique time, cost, fuel, accident and CO2 saving functionality with the added benefit of being able to conduct real-time tracking of fleet vehicles.
Since its launch in 2012, Lightfoot has already taken the fleet fuel saving technology market by storm thanks to its unique approach to changing driver behaviour. Having been carefully developed to meet the needs of busy fleet managers, Lightfoot’s genius lies in the way it proactively fixes driver behaviour at source by providing real-time visual and audible training, whilst also providing fleet managers with a simple, user-friendly, weekly report containing at-a-glance insights into fleet performance and confirmation of sustained fuel and CO2 savings.
The new tracking facility, which will give fleet managers the extra option of accessing up-to-the-minute data on vehicle location and movement is due to be launched at Drive It @ Bruntingthorpe, 10-12 July 2014, where interested customers will be able to test drive a vehicle fitted with Lightfoot and experience the benefits for themselves.
“We have been delighted with Lightfoot’s success since its launch two years ago, and it’s great to see it bringing tangible gains to some of the UK’s largest and most innovative fleets,” said Mark Roberts, Managing Director, Ashwoods Lightfoot Ltd. “Feedback from the fleet managers we are already working with have reported significant results with minimal management intervention, and excellent driver buy-in due to the positive and non-invasive way Lightfoot supports change and provides feedback. We’re looking forward to showcasing Lightfoot at Drive It @ Bruntingthorpe, and with the launch of the new tracking feature, we’re pleased to be making Lightfoot even more attractive to our customers.”
Providing fuel and CO2 savings of over 10%, Lightfoot’s effectiveness has been proven with some of the UK’s largest fleets, and its rapid ROI makes it one of the most commercially attractive fleet fuel saving technologies on the market. In addition to saving fuel and reducing CO2 emissions, through sustainable improvements in driver behaviour, Lightfoot offers proven safety benefits, a reduction in wear and tear and increased vehicle residual value.
