Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia UEM Edgenta is the region’s leading Asset Management & Infrastructure Solutions company. UEM’s expertise covers Healthcare Support and Property & Facility Solutions within our Asset Management segment, and Infrastructure Services, along with Asset Consultancy within Infrastructure Solutions.
Significant improvements to the business have been seen through the adoption of innovative technology to help reduce safety incidents. As a result UEM’s key safety metrics have improved by 50 per cent since 2017, with speeding violations reducing 98 per cent over 7 months and traffic summons reducing by 92 per cent over 1 year.
“In my opinion, the most significant outcome is to see the improvements in driving behaviour amongst our people as a result of consistent communication throughout the implementation period,” UEM Fleet Manager Mohd Azreen Bin M Abdan said.
“The consistency helped nurture more understanding of the underlying objectives of the initiative and well enough, we gained the support of our people towards better results in this area.
The team has made use of the IntelliTrac system capturing savings of RM45,000 ($14,900 AUD) within 10 months of implementation (January 2019 – October 2019), while its Tyre Pressure Monitoring System captured savings of RM75,000 ($24,833 AUD) within 12 months of implementation (January 2019 – October 2019).
“As the region’s leading Asset Management and Infrastructure Solutions provider, we embrace and employ technology through the use of data,” Mohd Azreen said.
“This advanced platform allows us to cut-down costs and be more efficient in our work.”
UEM Edgenta looks forward to the future and the introduction of further safety measures to make the “mobile office” safer for their staff and also to further reduce costs.
“We would like to further explore the use of sensors or devices that can be installed on the vehicles to ease the collection of data collated from the daily inspection that can be used to develop further precautionary measures”
