BOCA RATON, FLA. – Nov. 12, 2013 – MiX Telematics (NYSE: MIXT), a leading global provider of fleet management, driver safety and vehicle tracking solutions, has helped Avita Coffee and Provision Inc., a Florida based coffee delivery company, raise their overall revenue by increasing the efficiency of their deliveries by 40 percent. After using a MiX Telematics solution tailored to their needs for six months, the company found they had a higher volume of delivery capacity.
“Even though MiX Telematics is a global company, we show the same passion and care to each of our customers,” said Neil Schwartzman, Chief Operating Officer of MiX Telematics North America. “The same powerful fleet management tools that are available to companies that manage thousands of vehicles in multiple countries are scalable and within budget of small businesses like Avita Coffee.”
Founded in 2004, Avita Coffee delivers coffees from around the world to the doorsteps of businesses across Southeast Florida. After instances of driver speeding, harsh breaking and off-route drivers were reported, James Clancy, founder and CEO of Avita Coffee, turned to MiX Telematics for help. MiX Telematics installed their onboard tracking technology and hardware in each of the Avita Coffee delivery vans. Avita Coffee experienced an increase in the efficiency of their deliveries by 40 percent, and within just six months of using MiX Telematics fleet management system, Avita Coffee became more efficient, saving money and time.
“I wasn’t sure there was a fleet management solution that would fit our small business footprint and budget,” said Clancy. “After speaking with MiX Telematics, I realized that we could improve how we manage our fleet and start to save the money we were losing from excessive and poor driving behavior. We’ve seen our delivery efficiencies go up almost 40 percent. The savings we’ve already seen have opened up opportunities to take on more business using the same number of vans and drivers before the MiX Telematics implementation.”
The MiX Telematics solution gave Avita Coffee real-time reporting on their drivers, allowing them the opportunity to provide same-day driver training. As a result, driver behavior changed quickly. “Our solution allowed for us to train Avita Coffee’s drivers to be more efficient and safe,” said Schwartzman. “This allowed the company to reduce delivery time and fuel consumption, causing an immediate bump in their income.”
