South Staffordshire Plc’s story


Comprised of several divisions including South Staffs Water and Cambridge Water, South Staffordshire Plc supports water, gas and other utility services. Certain branches of the business provide electrical lightening, ground earthing and light testing for many high-profile establishments. South Staffordshire Plc has almost 2,000 vehicles nationwide, ranging from cars to 5 tonne vans, and operates a number of specialists HGVs, all fitted with Quartix vehicle tracking. 

On a day-to-day basis, the individual offices within South Staffordshire Plc use the Quartix system to monitor driving styles and keep track of their vehicles. Speed reports are a feature that all branches use in order to mitigate the risk of accidents and reduce vehicle wear and tear. “Being able to monitor every vehicle means that we can drive down our insurance costs by decreasing our risk of accidents. Our insurance is set up so that we get rewarded, through lower premiums, when our claims don’t cost the insurance company as much as they allow for each vehicle per year. The Quartix system has helped us get our insurance claims down to a point where our premiums won’t increase.”

Why Quartix?


Quartix offers reliable telematics for the utilities industry to ensure the safety of workers and fleet vehicles when travelling to locations. Our vehicle tracking system is designed to streamline your operations and help you discover potential risks that may arise. We combine the latest GPS tracker technology with sophisticated reporting so that you can feel confident that your fleet is used optimally and your workers are driving safely, all while ensuring jobs are delivered on schedule.

Your challenge


Our valuable reports on driver behaviour can be intrinsic to your cost-saving agenda, allowing you to operate a safer, greener and more efficient fleet. The Quartix telematics system is an intrinsic tool for fleet managers.

Over 520 of Calor Gas‘s national delivery and service fleet have Quartix trackers installed, including Scanias, Renaults, Dafs and large tri-axle tanker trailers that operate from centres across the country.  “I find some of the most useful information is provided by the system’s fleet management functionality, tailored daily email reports and onscreen KPI management dashboards. With these I can keep tabs on everything that’s going on quite easily,” says David Brown, Fleet Asset Manager.

“The Quartix product is very reliable, the insights it provides are fantastic and the support we’ve received is second to none.”
