Best Health and Safety Project or Innovation
Northpoint Fleet Management have been successful in retaining the Santos Fleet Management Services contract for a term of three years plus an extension of two years, based on successful achievement of KPIs. This contract provides fleet management services in the Cooper Basin, Eastern Queensland, Mereenie and Port Bonython, with a current fleet of over 500 light vehicles, (predominantly Toyota Hilux and Land Cruisers) and a similar number of trailers, forklifts and truck cranes.
Northpoint have been providing Santos Fleet needs for many years and, through the tender process, have proven to be the Australian leader in this space. They are also the only Toyota dealership in the central region to obtain and offer Express Maintenance and Lighthouse Dealership status.
Their proposal was comprehensive and competitive, clearly demonstrating they have a complete understanding of the Santos business and our needs. Since Northpoint have been working with Santos a number of initiatives have been implemented, including sourcing through to final implementation of In Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS), IVMS Dashboard reporting and a number of vehicle improvements such as new generation vehicle trays incorporating a spare wheel cage.
Their safety commitment and performance has also been very good, with particular improvement in the past 2-3 years, with no recordable injuries since September 2009. In late 2010, Northpoint and Santos also hosted a familiarisation visit to the Cooper Basin by representatives from Toyota in Japan, who were very impressed by both Santos and Northpoint’s fleet maintenance / management commitment and professionalism.
Thanks to Santos Contract Analyst Elizabeth who led the tender and negotiation process.
Glenys Briscoe of Northpoint Fleet Management has provided me with exceptional support in my day to day works with IVMS for the past 18 months. Every request of support has been delivered without delay and on many occasions the requests I have asked for have contained information that exceeded expectations of deliverance. With all the companies that Glenys deals with, you were always made to feel like you were a priority. The reporting supplied from Northpoint by their IT Team makes all dealings with IVMS clear and concise which can be understood from any level. Any company or project looking for a Support Company to help them deal with IVMS should not go past the professional and friendly service that I have experienced with Glenys and Northpoint Fleet Management.

I have found the Northpoint IVMS Dashboard to be of great assistance in managing our IVMS data, saving me a lot of time from doing it manually.
Glenys Briscoe has also been very helpful responding to any queries that we have had.
