Why you should use Vehicle CCTV in your business transport

Vehicle CCTV has come a long way in the last 5 years.  CCTV used day to day has moved a stage further and become mobile.  With roads becoming busier and more congested vehicle CCTV will help any company reduce costs, helps the driver and saves lives.

The normal setup is 1 x forward facing camera, 2 x side cameras and 1 x rear.  All 4 cameras will be recording to 2 x SD cards.  These will record up to 5 days’ worth of recording before over writing themselves.

We fit a 7” in cab monitor which for added safety shows the driver the near side (for cyclists) then the rear when placed into reverse.

With traffic as it is today I would want my drivers to have as many driver aids as possible. This is why you should use Vehicle CCTV.

Pay as you go vehicle tracking for SME Businesses

I think we can all agree that times are hard now. Businesses are finding it harder and harder to expand their businesses or simply improve their businesses due to the lack of cash flow. The banks are not lending to the SME businesses as no one wants to take on the risk. It is a crying shame that SME businesses are being pushed into liquidation by banks not funding their cash flow or large businesses and their excessive payment terms. We have all experienced the bank refusing us a temporary overdraft or a loan due to not enough banking history with a SME business.
