Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service choose identical fleet management system

23 September, 2014

Civica Tranman expected to improve efficiencies and reduce administration costs.

Following the combination in 2013 of the eight Scottish police forces and eight fire services to form Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service respectively, both independently chose Civica’s Tranman software to manage their large national fleets.

A key factor in the procurement exercise, said Civica, was the company’s experience of successfully merging systems together and integrating multiple and large datasets into a single database.

Civica has carried out similar projects for Norfolk and Suffolk Police, Kent and Essex Police, and most recently a system shared by three Yorkshire police forces.

In Scotland, both organisations will be using Tranman’s touchscreen technology in their workshops spread across Scotland, allowing data to be easily input by technicians directly into the system, giving the central teams visibility of current availability and costs immediately.

Stewart Taylor, National Fleet Manager at Police Scotland, commented: “We needed a state of the art system, using the latest technology, to enable us to standardise processes quickly across the new organisation, and ensure maximum efficiency in our operations. Tranman proved to be the system that could not only deliver that now, but as a strategic partner over the long term."

The latest contract win means Civica provides national fleet management systems to all three emergency services in Scotland, including the Scottish Ambulance Service, as well as half of the 32 Scottish local authorities.
