Synectics Gets the Go-Ahead for Contract Extension
Monday, 25 July 2016
Transport company, The Go-Ahead Group, has extended its contract with Synectics to continue maintaining and supporting CCTV solutions on the group’s 4,600-strong fleet of vehicles in the UK.
The extended agreement will see Synectics continue to provide surveillance systems and support for Go-Ahead’s bus division until September 2018, taking the relationship between the two companies to over five years.
Having initially undertaken a fleet-wide evaluation to bring the vehicle CCTV systems up to standard through ongoing maintenance and upgrades, Synectics has more recently moved to overseeing and implementing major upgrade programmes for Go-Ahead.
In addition, Synectics has worked closely with Go-Ahead and selected partners to support increased integration of on-vehicle CCTV and other critical business systems, helping streamline business process and improve efficiency.
The Go-Ahead’s Group Procurement Director, Jeremy Marshall, said: “Synectics has been a valuable partner as we have undertaken significant upgrades to our fleet, both in London and nationally, over the last year, and we are pleased to have their support as we push towards technology integration and increased use of technology to drive value for the Group.”
Jeff Fail, Managing Director of Synectics’ Mobile Division said: “We are proud to continue our relationship with Go-Ahead. This contract extension demonstrates our ability to meet the complex technology needs of large bus and coach fleets. We appreciate the trust Go-Ahead places in us to provide a consistent, reliable and effective service.
“As a business we have shown transport sector expertise, extensive technical capabilities and the ability to anticipate emerging requirements and future innovations. We look forward to continuing this successful partnership.”
