Maintaining Selwood’s reputation for exceptional service in plant hire

Sure-Track is delighted to announce that Selwood, one of the UK's largest Plant Hire companies, has chosen us as their new provider for telematics across their fleet of plant machinery.

Selwood has opted for the brand new Security Keypad Immobiliser system with additional inputs and outputs reporting live into our online portal.

Selwood Plant Hire

After months of trialling and testing different bespoke applications and requirements, Selwood tasked Sure-Track to provide an array of different configurable inputs that report live into our online portal.

The roll out will give Selwood full Telematics and a PIN/RFID activated Security Keypad Immobiliser across 1,000+ machines throughout their 7 branches in Chandlers Ford, Bournemouth, Exeter, Sittingbourne, Bristol, Cardiff and Tipton. 

The roll out will also provide live and historical reporting on the below:Security Keypad Immobiliser

  • Live and historical machine immobilisation 
  • Live and historical excavating
  • Live and historical engine running (the system will also report exact engine run hours, allowing for accurate scheduled on site servicing to ensure compliance)
  • Live and historical green beacon status (if a driver’s seat belt is on or off)
  • Live and historical machine idling (reporting on true idling: machine not working but engine running)

This bespoke telematics system has been designed and developed to the specification of Selwood's requirements and all reporting and information is also being supplied via an API feed into their internal company-wide management system. 

Everyone at Sure-Track is excited about this project which is already in full flow.

“Safety and security is as important to Selwood as it is to our valued customers. Our partnership with Sure-Track will ensure that we have live, real time information on the location and use of our hired machines, prevent unauthorised use and enable our teams to schedule maintenance to keep downtime to a minimum. We are pleased to be using Sure-Track technology to build on Selwood’s reputation for exceptional service in plant hire.”
Richard Bright, Chief Operating Officer at Selwood
