Staff growth of nearly 20% - largely to fuel investment in research and development – has seen UK based Transport Management Solutions provider Microlise continue sustained growth both in the UK and internationally. The transport telematics solutions provider has achieved a sixth successive year of revenue increase.
Nadeem Raza, Managing Director of Microlise.
Over the past six years, Microlise has seen rapid uptake of the company's fleet performance, journey management and proof of delivery solutions across a client base of manufacturers, logistics operators and vehicle lease providers. As a result of deals with leading vehicle manufacturers such as DAF and MAN UK, and work with lease hire companies, around 50% of HGVs sold in the UK this year will come pre-installed with Microlise telematics technology.
Microlise now supports over 140,000 connections to vehicles in the UK and internationally, operating across 139 countries in total and supporting 28 different languages. Microlise solutions help transport operators across all sectors to reduce fuel usage by up to 15%, reduce accident rates and insurance premiums, improve customer service, reduce fleet size and ensure driver safety.
To support continued growth, Microlise has significantly invested in its team, particularly in the area of research & development where 70% of new hires have been deployed. The company operates a "Students Year in Industry" programme to provide opportunities for young people and this has resulted in six interns being offered full time positions at the end of their university courses.
"Microlise is a transport technology success story on an increasingly impressive and expanding international level," said Nadeem Raza, Managing Director. "Our people are at the very heart of these achievements and their commitment and passion around what they do continues to drive us forward."
Earlier this year, Microlise ran the Microlise Transport Conference, the success of which has cemented the company's position as the leading provider of telematics solutions to transport operators in the UK. The 2014 conference saw over 600 transport professionals attend the Ricoh Arena in Coventry to hear about the latest developments within the transport industry. Plans for the Microlise Transport Conference 2015 are due to be announced soon.
