“We are delighted that this investment allows us to further extend the use of vehicle telematics across our business. By using data from Enigma Telematics’ Skyline system, we are able to promote best practice amongst our drivers, which in turn brings improved fuel efficiency and safer driving. We are also able to use Skyline to help us better schedule journeys made by our company vehicles, which also helps to reduce overheads.”

Company: FM Conway
FM Conway provides services including highway maintenance, civil engineering and traffic management and has recently undertaken work on a number of high-profile projects, including Barclays’ Cycle Superhighway for Transport for London and the Tower Bridge Olympic Lighting Project for the City of London Corporation.
Headquartered in Dartford in Kent, FM Conway began using Skyline in 2013, when 71 of its trucks were fitted with Enigma’s flagship online fleet management system. Following this successful upgrade, FM Conway opted to enhance the security and management of all of its vehicles, plant and machinery, investing over £300,000 to extend the usage of Skyline and make Enigma the sole provider of vehicle telematics solutions to the company.
FM Conway had a previous agreement in place with another provider prior to Enigma, so as this contract expired, existing tracking units were removed and replaced with Skyline. In total, over 800 vehicles, plant and items of machinery operated by FM Conway are now monitored by Skyline.
As well as improved security, the roll-out of Skyline has allowed FM Conway to greatly increase the effectiveness of its fleet management, including an improvement in driving standards through the use of the ‘traffic light’ Key Performance Indicator (KPI) function.
Using data easily extracted from the system, FM Conway has been able to identify bad habits and promote best practice to its drivers. Skyline can record the speed of vehicles in real-time and produce automatic speeding reports, based on GPS data and the precise local speed limits.
Skyline has also helped to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption, with the prevention of excessive vehicle idling and better journey scheduling.
