St John Ambulance has implemented telematics from Airmax Remote across its fleet of 550 vehicles.

Airmax Remote’s Response is a dedicated system for blue-light fleets, designed to deliver mission-critical data in real time.

Among the key features is ancillary battery life monitoring, ensuring that life-saving equipment on the vehicles is always ready to use. There is also real-time monitoring of diagnostic faults to help keep downtime to a minimum.

St John Ambulance national fleet manager Phil Howard said: “Our vehicles often respond to difficult incidents, in which consistent performance is essential to support our life-saving work. 

“With the partnership and functionality delivered by Airmax Remote’s Response solution, we now have access to IoT connectivity and full insights, thanks to Airmax advancement in data accuracy compared to the general marketplace, which can be monitored remotely without the need to visit a vehicle. 

“In addition, remote monitoring of the vital battery-powered life-saving technology operated from our fleet of emergency vehicles ensures that we have no outages and critical equipment is maintained to a high standard.”

Airmax Remote managing director Richard Perham said: “Airmax Remote has over 20 years’ experience of working with the emergency services and the partnership with a blue-light emergency services provider with the stature of St John Ambulance is a massive endorsement of Airmax Remote’s Response solution, which is fast becoming the de-facto standard for blue-light fleets.”
