Jason King has been appointed to head up our Telemaxis division and develop new services to be launched in 2019.
After gaining IT qualifications in college, Jason began his working life in vehicle sales, initially with Peugeot before joining George White Motorcycles. He then moved into a senior role with business process outsourcing firm Capita, where he was responsible for developing and managing its IT environment.
He will now take responsibility for all aspects of our Telemaxis portal, designed to help customers manage their driver performance while reducing overheads and their environmental impact whilst optimising efficiency and retention. Part of Jason’s remit is to further develop the support on offer, including the launch of new trailer tracking and mobile wheel alignment services to be rolled out in the New Year.
The trailer tracking service compliments the existing Telemaxis offering which enables customers to recover KPI data from powered assets and also access remote tachometer downloads, driver behaviour information and management reports. Through advancements in trailer tracking, Telemaxis will be further enhanced to deliver remote diagnostics, including brake performance checks and preventative maintenance reporting, supported by our Mobile Maintenance division.
Meanwhile the mobile wheel alignment service is being developed to help customers generate fuel savings through correct wheel alignment. Recent trials by Volvo Trucks recorded a 2.5 per cent reduction in fuel costs by ensuring its vehicles’ wheels were correctly aligned.
Axis Managing Director Leigh Goodland said: “Jason joins Axis with an ideal skills set which includes strong project management and IT capabilities as well as a wider understanding of the transport sector.
“He has a key role to play as we expand our Telemaxis offering to provide further support to customers through our new trailer tracking and wheel alignment services. These are designed to help customers minimise trailer downtime and reduce fuel costs. They are further examples of our proactive approach in providing market-leading customer service.”
