Driver experiences with OptiMate
The success of any electronic metering system largely depends on its user-friendliness and the extent to which it addresses the needs of its end-users, in this case, the fuel delivery drivers. We spoke to David Willcox, Tanker Driver at the WP Group to understand his experience with OptiMate and the benefits it has delivered.
Ease of use
OptiMate is designed to be user-friendly and easy to learn, even for those who are not tech-savvy. David said: “After the initial training, I found the system’s menu simple and straightforward, with quick scrolling options that enable me to navigate through the various functions effortlessly.”
David states: “I believe that significant time savings are made when using OptiMate, as the automatic functions, such as line and compartment changes, make the delivery process much faster. I no longer need to return to the truck to enact this function as I can stay at the point of delivery.”
A faster delivery process enables drivers to complete more deliveries in a day, ultimately benefiting both the WP Group and its customers.
Enhanced safety and reassurance
We asked David about OptiMate’s fuel contamination prevention, and he commented: “OptiMate’s ability to prevent fuel contamination, provides an added layer of reassurance and confidence when I am making a delivery.”
Drivers across the UK have commented to us that they appreciate the fact that the electronic metering system “has their back,” ensuring the highest standards of safety and professionalism in their day-to-day operations.
