Animal genetics firm Genus says it has seen a double-digit improvement in fuel efficiency after installing Lightfoot’s driver coaching system in its fleet of 580 vehicles, including 380 vans.

In addition to the 10.4% fuel economy improvement, Genus is also said to have seen an end to instances of dangerous driving, and enhanced driver wellbeing with the introduction of Lightfoot’s first notice of loss alert service.

Genus global fleet and cost manager Adrian Davies said: “We’ve seen a positive change in driver performance across the board. The results are excellent, and our Lightfoot driver scores have increased by 68.4% with a 100% reduction in dangerous driving and a fuel-saving of 10.4%.

“We’ve also introduced Lightfoot’s FNOL feature, which has become a great help to the business, enabling us to react instantly, checking driver welfare should there be an accident or incident, and enabling us to arrange the correct level of help. 

“This further enhances our duty of care and the wellbeing of our staff who spend a significant amount of their working life travelling to and from customers.”
