Financial savings on grit bins using KaarbonTech Asset Management Systems
Surrey County Council needed to optimise how it filled grit bins so it could be ready for the winter period, mitigate risk and provide a valuable resource to keep the highways running.
Surrey County Council adopted the KaarbonTech system in the summer with a countywide inspection of the grit bins stocks being undertaken in August. With temperatures beginning to fall, the first round of grit bin filling had just been completed.
KaarbonTech software enabled the Council to accurately monitor the location, filling and usage of grit bins using iOS and Android smart devices.
By winter, Surrey County Council had already achieved a saving of £50,000 before a single flake of snow had fallen, with further savings to come.
They went on to use KaarbonTech to manage tree stocks and their drainage network via different contractors.
