Vintage Mini Cooper fleet equipped with vehicle trackers
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Smallcarbigcity’s fleet of vintage Mini Coopers is now being tracked using Kinesis’s telematics system, which allows vehicles’ movements to be followed from any internet enabled device.

Kinesis is also providing additional intelligence including driver and vehicle performance data, location and event-based alerts, and integration with fuel cards from UK Fuels for additional fuel-use analysis, reduced paperwork and accurate miles per gallon calculations. The latter coupled with the data on driver performance, including speeding, harsh braking & accelerating, and idling can potentially aid in reducing fuel consumption.

Each Mini’s location is updated every 30 seconds and the live vehicle tracking can be used to view congestion and amend routes accordingly, if needed.

“Over the years we have been approached by many tracking companies but as a start-up, with a small fleet of classic cars, usually driven by our own team of experienced local guides, we just couldn’t justify their costs,” said Tony Grant, managing director of Smallcarbigcity. “Kinesis is different, at an affordable monthly cost the solution provides integration with our fuel cards and a host of functionality and benefits beyond just tracking.”

“Simple things like knowing where a car is allows us to make informed decisions,” continued Grant. “We can also monitor mileage, trip duration, fuel usage and driver behaviour, essential as we expand the fleet and develop new trips and services.”

Smallcarbigcity offers a range of services for event companies, travel operators, media agencies and private travellers. It claims to be London’s smallest private hire fleet and was voted ‘Top London Attraction’ by TripAdvisor.
