TomTom Telematics helps Kent Central Ambulance Service 

TomTom Telematics is helping Kent Central Ambulance Service to meet its NHS targets for patient delivery 97% of the time, following the installation of the WEBFLEET fleet management solution.

Nigel Patton, Managing Director of Kent Central Ambulance Service Ltd “We had tried vehicle tracking before but it did not meet our expectations – it kept losing signal and there were no live traffic updates. With the new WEBFLEET system, there are no connectivity issues so we always know where our vehicles are. The traffic alerts also enable our drivers to avoid congestion and deliver our VIP cargo as quickly as possible.”

“There is always a lot of road building and development around Kent, but the live map updates keep our drivers ahead of the game and on time. It’s like having a new system every day.”
