Case Study: Surrey County Council

Financial savings on grit bins using KaarbonTech Asset Management Systems

The Problem
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.
The Approach
KaarbonTech software enabled the Council to accurately monitor the location, filling and usage of grit bins using iOS and Android smart devices.
The Outcome
By winter, Surrey County Council had already achieved a saving of £50,000 before a single flake of snow had fallen.
“Our teams have found the KaarbonTech software accessed using wireless handheld devices easy to use. The quality data collected has enhanced our ability to plan in a more targeted way and is a key part of our winter maintenance plan.”
Tony Casey
Highways Maintenance Team Leader, Surrey County Council
“The KaarbonTech system has delivered considerable cost savings of £50,000 already and enabled us to maintain the grit bin service we provide to our residents. We anticipate seeing further savings as the winter progresses.”

The Problem

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.

The Approach

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.

The Outcome

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.

“Highways authorities are looking for innovative ways to manage their costs whilst maintaining or enhancing service delivery to the public. KaarbonTech is focused on developing products that will help local authorities achieve that objective.”
