The Ambroise Bouvier group implements Vehco's solution on its entire fleet

Brest, France, May 26th, 2015: the transport and logistics company, Ambroise Bouvier, chose Vehco’s telematics solution to equip 375 heavy vehicles. According to Thierry Ambroise, Ambroise Bouvier Transports’ General Manager, « the objective is to improve the management of the group’s mobile resources: Operations Management on the web portal and Payroll Management on the software Vehco Manager ».

All the vehicles are equipped with a latest-generation on-board computer (COM 4) and a touch screen. Transport orders are sent via the messaging module directly to the drivers in order to enable assignments’ traceability. A link to the CANbus will make it possible to implement Vehco’s ecodriving solution and to monitor fuel costs while improving the driving behaviour of the drivers.

Finally, Vehco’s « social management » module will facilitate the management of the 430 drivers working for Ambroise Bouvier Group. Indeed, with Vehco’s Payroll Preparation solution, accessible from Vehco Manager, data from the field (driving time, working time, geolocalisation-based resting times) are compiled to automatically generate the corresponding compensations and paid times. Paid times (monthly synthesis for each driver) can then be imported directly in the payroll software. Claire Guérinel, Human Resources Manager of Ambroise Bouvier’s group, comments : « with our telematics, we plan to automate the calculation of the expenses of all the drivers by the summer ».

A Vehco/AKANEA interface should follow in order to automatically import paid times in the payroll software. The service for remote download of driver and vehicle files will allow the acceleration of field data compilation as well as legal archiving (Vehco has been offering a service to remotely retrieve legal files since this year). The enterprise card is hosted by Vehco, ensuring a maximum level of service, since the card is necessary for download. The new version of Vehco Suite will make it possible to import and read raw data from the C1B file and to compare them to the drivers’chronologies (editable by the manager according to the field’s real data or the transporter’s specific expense policy).

For Ambroise Bouvier, the investment in a unique fleet management tool for all the subsidiaries of the group will improve the company’s management, and also bring more transparency on quality of service towards its customers. Serge Gautheron, Sales Manager of Vehco France, welcomes the choice of Thierry Ambroise and his team : « I have known the company Ambroise Bouvier for years, it is a strong transport company with which we will be able to implement numerous aspects of our solution overtime. A partnership built on the long run ».
