Ooredoo on Saturday announced that Qatar Building Company (QBC) had seen "strong success" on transforming its vehicle operations with the Ooredoo Fleet Management solution powered by the Internet of Things, with the rollout to 1,000 vehicles started last year.
Founded in 1971, QBC is one of Qatar’s longest-standing and most innovative construction companies.
Qatar Building Company has three divisions: Civil Contracting - QBC is the contractor of choice to play a major role in the nation’s most prestigious projects. It has achieved great success in civil construction projects, infrastructure, roads, highways, drainage and water projects; Production: QBC Production adheres to the toughest international standards to deliver the best construction materials, like asphalt plants, Ready-mix plants and concrete, to Qatar’s biggest projects; and Trading: it provides the construction equipment, spare parts and after-sales service from the most trusted brands around the world.
With QBC’s work ramping up amid the wide range of mega-projects boosted by Qatar National Vision 2030, the company faced challenges in keeping track of its fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles – costing it time and money, Ooredoo said in a press statement.
In response, over the past year, QBC has rolled out the Ooredoo Fleet Management solution across its different types of fleet vehicles. Qatar Building Company now automatically re-routes drivers when needed to avoid delays, has real-time visibility of vehicle resources at any time, and can even increase safety by avoiding situations such as sharp turns or speeding.
The company is "saving costs both on diesel consumption, much reduced, and on maintenance. It can now manage the fleet operations far more efficiently", the statement notes.
Sheikh Nasser al-Thani, chief business officer at Ooredoo, said: “Qatar Building Company is an industry leader that is showing how using the Internet of Things can drive innovation and save time and money. Our Ooredoo Fleet Management solution is ideal for a wide range of industries that need to keep track of vehicles – from construction to transportation, education and government services.
"Based on the success of the initial deployment, Qatar Building Company plans in the next phase to extend the Ooredoo Fleet Management Solution to more vehicles in its construction fleet. As part of the deployment, Ooredoo is providing the optimal level of convenience with the full installation of the solution."
Ooredoo Fleet Management is an end-to-end Internet of Things solution that includes hardware, software and mobile connectivity, along with 24/7 support.
Bader Mostafawi, Group commercial manager at Qatar Building Company, said: “Since Qatar Building Company rolled out the Ooredoo Fleet Management solution, we can now easily manage our fleet, increase our productivity, and meet government and international standards. Ooredoo Fleet Management is great – it’s perfect for all businesses looking to control and reduce costs, increase efficiency and boost our customers’ happiness.”
Business customers can leverage the Ooredoo Advantage, "making Ooredoo 'Best for Business', thanks to its breadth and depth of talent, best fixed and mobile networks, broadest portfolio of ICT services and solutions, and for being a trusted partner for 60 years", the statement adds.
