We're happy to have this amazing customer in the Suivo family: Demerstee Touringcars! They have turned to Suivo for a time-saving and intuitive telematics solution with remote tachograph download and track and trace functionality.
Demerstee Touring, a coach company with rond 20 coaches, is part of Multiobus, a coach operator with over 150 buses. To ensure correct real-time and historical information, for both national and international journeys, the company uses telematics. This information is important, not just for the company itself, but also for their customers which include schools and youth associations.
Telematics in the coach and bus sector
Telematics is mandatory equipment for monitoring coaches and buses, and it is impossible to imagine the sector without it. For safety reasons, the proper monitoring of buses during customer assignments is crucial. This includes monitoring the drivers, fuel consumption and idling consumption, and keeping the tachograph and driver card up to date.
This has led to a broad demand for telematics solutions across the sector, with popular features including track and trace, driver behaviour, remote tachograph downloads and reading, driver card monitoring, fuel consumption, and working hours.
Disadvantages of current telematics systems
Currently, different systems have been installed in the buses for this purpose. However, there are several major disadvantages: users have to learn how to use different applications, mechanics need separate installation instructions to install and configure the different hardware components, and each system has its own subscription formulas and invoice structure.
This makes it labour intensive to perform and maintain the installations, as well as following-up the control systems and payment of different invoices.
