EcoManager conquers Europe

Monday, October 4th, 2010

With concerns over rising oil prices spreading to mainland Europe, 21st Century has secured orders for the award-winning fuel saving device EcoManager from bus companies in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.

21st Century will be demonstrating the features and benefits of EcoManager at Euro Bus Expo at the NEC on 2nd to 4th November on stand T183.

EcoManager assists drivers in adopting a more economic, smoother and safer driving style by highlighting when braking, accelerating and cornering is done correctly or otherwise through an Integrated Safety Device.  The ISD lights a series of red, amber and green lights on a ‘real-time’ dashboard display according to how efficiently the bus is being driven.   This display uses technical details from the vehicle’s CAN system and G-force data in real time and crosses language barriers, making the system ideal for use across the continent. 

Extensive management reports show how well each driver is doing relative to the average, the ideal and the rest of their depot colleagues.

Significant fuel savings of 12% are made almost immediately, and are sustained after the initial success because of continued monitoring.  Further savings are gained through reduced wear and tear on the vehicle and therefore lower maintenance costs.  Accidents are also reduced, further lowering running costs.  Because the vehicle is using less fuel it is also emitting 12% less carbon. 

It is estimated that EcoManager makes savings that cover the initial cost of investment within the first year. 

Paul Rogers, Director of Sales and Marketing for 21st Century Technology Solutions, comments:  “EcoManager took the UK by storm when it was launched here two years ago.  We launched it in Europe earlier this year and have already received orders in four countries and have begun the installation process with nearly 500 already installed.”

21st Century sponsors Arriva’s MAD awards

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Arriva MAD awards21st Century Technology is sponsoring Arriva Yorkshire’s MAD (Make A Difference) Award for the most economical driver.  The annual MAD Awards recognise individuals who have made a difference to the business and are awarded by customers, colleagues and managers.

The ECO Award will be judged on the data received through Arriva’s use of EcoManager, 21st Century’s award winning fuel management system.  EcoManager assists drivers in adopting a more economic, smoother and safer driving style by highlighting when braking, accelerating and cornering is done correctly or otherwise through an Integrated Safety Device.  The ISD lights a series of red, amber and green lights on a ‘real-time’ dashboard display according to how efficiently the bus is being driven.  Management reports show how well each driver is doing in terms of fuel economy and smooth driving.

EcoManager has been in use on Arriva buses for two years and has cut fuel costs by 12%.  Passengers have also reported improved journey experiences, and even accident rates have been reduced.

The Arriva MAD Award for ECO driving will assess individual drivers on their performance over twelve months and reward the most improved driver.

The Arriva Yorkshire MAD Awards are being presented at a special ceremony at Elland Road, home of Leeds United Football Club, on Saturday 2nd October.
