Lancashire based technology business, Triscan Systems recently gained recognition for its products and services from the Association for Public Sector Excellence. The prestigeous award – APSE Approved Partner, was presented at the association’s national transport seminar following a rigourous audit of Triscan’s experience in the areas of fuel cost and CO2 reduction.
The Heritage Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, provided the venue for the association’s latest seminar where over 80 delegates from councils across the country, listened intently to keynote speakers on a number of topics relating to the management of fleet resources in challenging times.
Triscan’s Barry McLeod was one of the speakers and commented “Fuel cost and carbon footprint reduction are key issues for public authorities at the moment for much publicised reasons. Triscan is particularily pleased to be able to work alongside APSE in this respect to reiterate some of the key messages. As one of a small number of Approved Partners, we are also uniquely positioned to provide insight into some of the technical solutions available in the market to both measure and manage resources”.
Councillor Richard Lyle from North Lanarkshire Council presented the certificate to Triscan at the end of a session entitled ‘Achieving more for less’. The presentation included a review of fuel management best practice and an advance glimpse of the new Triscan Management Control Dashboard; a major feature of the company’s latest web based management software. The dashboard provides an executive, summarised view of fuelling operations and overcomes the challenge faced by many transport professionals in getting a clean, true and up to the minute picture of their fuelling operation.
Barry McLeod continues “Ultimately, software exists that enables managers to take informed decisions that in turn save money and the environment – Why waste it?” Our own products now provide comparative summary information which if needed, can be further drilled into for specific performance data relating to sites, vehicles or drivers.
Reconciling and presenting data as useful information is not a challenge peculiar to government authorities. It is a generic problem for all organisations and public accountability and scrutiny over cost management is likely to be at the top of the agenda for public organisations over the coming months. Triscan is keen to support APSE and enable member bodies to more easily manage their key performance indicators; specifically those relating to carbon footprint.
Triscan will next be involved with APSE at their annual seminar in Derry; 8th to 9th September.
