THE CHALLENGE

THE SOLUTION

Founded in 1994, Salubris S.A. is a non-listed public limited company with a fleet of 76 specialized vehicles involved in its core operations: collection of non-hazardous waste for further treatment and disposal. The company grew significantly in the early 2010s, and this called for optimization of both operational activities and costs. While looking at ways to restructure its fuel transactions, the management team discovered that actual fuel consumption regularly exceeded the proposed values mentioned in technical specification documents.

This led to installing Omnicomm’s fuel level sensors in the vehicles’ fuel tanks along with appropriate GPS tracking devices. The solution appealed in its simplicity and the potential cost savings it claimed to bring. An important factor was also the brand’s global reputation and known reliability.

As of 2017, Salubris S.A. has been working with Omnicomm and running its hardware for more than five years bundled with a handy iTrack application from iSYS Professional. Salubris S.A. now operates its fleet more efficiently: from fuel costs down by a fifth on the original level and eliminated driver fraud to preventing technical breakdowns in advance by monitoring fuel data and reductions in man errors, the company has been running its operations on a clearer and more predictable basis over the past years. They took control of all things fuel – and never looked back!

THE RESULT

The past five years that the fleet has employed fuel level sensors have generated an impressive 20% cut in fuel costs; in fact, fail-proof functioning of Omnicomm’s equipment together with software by iSYS Professional, a Romanian IT services provider, has laid the foundation for other major changes for Salubris S.A.

The overall achievement involves optimizing key business processes altogether, from eliminating driver fraud to better technical servicing of the vehicles.

Mr. Bogdan Dirvariu, Data Analyst for Salubris S.A., states, ‘We at Salubris S.A. are very pleased with the chosen solution, as it has brought great results – sustainable results! – in terms of reducing fuel expenses.’
