Background

Founded more than 40 years ago, Mulholland Contracts Ltd. is one of the largest privately owned construction companies in Scotland.

The company provides a range of construction based services including Groundworks, Surfacing and Utilities and Street lighting to major blue chip housing developers and corporations.

Why Verizon Connect?

Following an audit of available solutions at the annual Commercial Vehicle show, Mulholland Contracts was impressed with the ease of use, depth of information and quality of reports offered from Ford Telematics. After a week-long Phase 1 of the technology, Mulholland Contracts deployed 100 Ford Transit Crew vans to transport teams of engineers and field workers to over 50 sites across central Scotland.

“We have already seen a major opportunity to drive ROI. For instance, by knowing exactly where our drivers are during the working day, we've saved an average of one hour per week, which across our workforce equals a 2.5% efficiency gain - a major labour boost in the context of a year. We have also forecasted a saving of 5% on fuel each year, equating to in excess of '£50K. This can be redirected to drive innovation elsewhere in the business, in order to maintain a competitive edge.”
