2016 Winner

Route Monkey

Route Monkey (RM) creates complex algorithms to deliver scheduling and route optimisation solutions for fleets. In 2015, Route Monkey (RM) estimates that it saved its customers a total 38,844,000 miles and a corresponding 26,258 tonnes of CO2 emissions. The system can provide real time dynamic scheduling and can comfortably deal with the addition of last-minute jobs or delays and road closures caused by road traffic accidents. RM’s EVOS solution is the first software to optimise ULEVs and the first that can schedule mixed fleets containing conventional and low carbon vehicles.

Rolec EV
Established in 1990 and widely recognised as one of the world’s leading specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of outdoor electrical connection, Rolec EV has supplied over 27,000 charging points to UK and mainland Europe markets. EV Charge Online is Rolec’s public facing EV charge point management system which enables all EV drivers to simply pull up to a charge point and, using their mobile phone, tablet or in-car connectivity, login to the charge point and pay on the spot for its use. It provides access to all EV drivers via a pay-as-you-go charging solution without having to commit to joining any specific network. The system can also be retro-fitted into existing public facing charging pedestals.

Chevin Fleet Solutions
Chevin’s fleet information management software, FleetWave, lets users view periodical MPG figures for their fleet, measure driver and vehicle performance and use the data to support future improvement measures. FleetWave Mobile can help perform daily vehicle inspections, report any potential safety concerns and directly raise jobs in the maintenance or workshop modules, improving remote workforce management and providing a significantly greener option than paper processes.

Geotab
With more than 900 million points of data collected daily, Geotab helps companies access critical business intelligence and benchmarking data to improve safety, reduce fuel and maintenance costs and strengthen compliance. To combat the set of challenges posed by heavy equipment, oil field equipment and related fleets, Geotab recently developed Go Rugged. Designed to the IP67 standard, the device provides engine data reporting on the Primary Cam Bus, giving fleets real-time vehicle tracking, engine diagnostics and driver details, including harsh braking or rapid acceleration, allowing users to optimise asset utilisation and reduce maintenance costs.

Emissions Analytics
Emissions Analytics recognised the urgent need for an alternative more realistic system so set about collecting as much real-world data from as many vehicles as it could. The launch of the EQUA Index has delivered real-world air quality, greenhouse gas and fuel economy data to all. By providing free access to this data online, informed decisions can be taken which lead directly to reductions in CO2 and NOx. As it becomes adopted, it has the potential to become the benchmark for independently validated vehicle performance data which will result in a cleaner, healthier environment.
