SmartWitness Launch Finance Deal for Cash-Strapped Truck Fleets in the UK
SmartWitness Launch Finance Deal for Cash-Strapped UK Truck Fleets
Industry leading video telematics provider, SmartWitness, has launched a new finance deal for fleet customers which includes hardware, software, and installation starting at £29.99 per month with no down payment.
SmartWitness MD, Paul Singh, stated: “Many fleet customers are experiencing serious cash flow problems due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have devised this finance program to help alleviate any further short-term financial burdens but also allowing them to keep their companies protected at this difficult time.”
The deal is inclusive of the latest 4G enabled CP2-LTE forward-facing camera which provides 1080p HD resolution and a week’s worth of continuous recording under normal vehicle working conditions. All video is accessible via one of SmartWitness’ 40+ integrated video telematics partners which will transmit video real-time with the option for “live” streaming. All of this is part of the £29.99 per month pricing. An in-cab camera can be added at the price of £34.99 per month. There is a simple one-page credit application and most are approved in 1-2 days, and the price includes a voucher for free installation.
Video telematics solutions provide crucial evidence in the event of a collision incident or third-party claim. SmartWitness software options include a full video telematics suite along with many of the reporting features that organizations need to monitor and improve operational efficiencies such as idle times, route data, driver behaviour monitoring, and more.
“Our video telematics solutions are paramount in keeping fleets running safely without disruption,” stated Paul Singh. “Prior to this pandemic situation, a single accident claim against a business could make a major impact and even lead to closure. The current environment has made the potential threat of a major insurance claim even more worrying to haulage companies who are already having to work hard to keep their head above water. To help inform partner channels and resellers about the new finance deals SmartWitness are holding an open-forum webinar on the new finance deal on Tuesday, June 16th at 1:00 PM (BST) to discuss how they can best assist fleet owners with their safety and cash-flow worries in the post Covid trucking landscape.”
The introduction of SmartWitness solutions has led to a 39% overall risk improvement along with disputed claims reduced to 2% for many fleets. With over 350,000 devices deployed in the field, SmartWitness is looking to give drivers confidence and keep the UK’s fleets moving safely.
