THE TENDER AND TEST INSTALLATIONS

In 2014 STRABAG Romania determined that their fuel costs were too high. Management decided to reduce fuel consumption using a fleet management system. Following this objective, a tender was organized for which six companies competed. After initial evaluation, three were selected for test installation, including Guava 7.

STRABAG thoroughly examined different options for fleet management equipment to install in its vehicles. The test installation lasted for 1 month. During this 1 month test course, 3 analogous vehicles were fitted with the fleet management systems from various manufacturers. Omnicomm equipment was installed in one Mercedes Actros. The test results showed Omnicomm delivered the optimum results.

The test mode proved Omnicomm’s value.  Fuel consumption dropped by 22 L per 100 KM, from 65 L to 43 L/100 KM, accounting for the vehicle driving 8,000 KM.

GUAVA 7 WON THE TENDER TO EQUIP STRABAG VEHICLES with the Omnicomm solution

STRABAG was impressed with the results, and liked the terms of the contract, which provided for fast and high-quality installation and maintenance from Guava 7. These factors helped to win the tender, despite the fact that the bid price was not the lowest.

“STRABAG is known for it’s very high quality of construction and engineering. The company possesses an excellent quality management system and pays thorough attention to all the aspects of work. High standards are applied to vehicles and machinery. In order to equip our fleet we organized a special tender. Omnicomm equipment provided significant results just in one month. That’s why choosing the offer is no coincidence. We have always looked for reliable products of experienced global players.”
