Telematics solutions company ABAX has received UK industry recognition in the areas of innovation and corporate social responsibility.
The business has been shortlisted for four coveted accolades; having impressed industry judges from the Insurance Times, 2022 Tech and Innovation Awards, UK Fleet Champions, the SME National Business Awards and the SME Cambridgeshire Awards.
ABAX's forward-thinking innovative solutions provide a range of vehicle fleet management, tool tracking and driving behaviour services, all designed to help businesses run more effectively, efficiently and safely.
Having demonstrated this to an expert judging panel, ABAX is one of just three UK companies to go through to the second round of the 2022 Insurance Times Tech and Innovation Awards, and be in the running for the Internet of Things (IoT) Breakthrough Award.
A winning second stage presentation to judges next month could give the company a chance to become a winner at a prestigious ceremony at London's Royal Lancaster later in the year.
One of ABAX's recent 'breakthrough' services is a partnership with Zego, which offers a 'pay only for what you use' fleet insurance model. By using telematics to determine the premium, based on mileage or driving behaviour, it could lead to up to 80 per cent savings when a fleet is off road.
This partnership has also earned ABAX a shortlisted place in the UK Fleet Champions Awards 2022 in the category of Fleet Safety Partnership, with winners being announced in October.
As well as a commitment to saving money, protecting assets and encouraging better time management, ABAX is deeply committed to fulfilling a far-reaching corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme in communities where it is established.
This has earned the company a place in the finals of the SME National Business Awards, where its tree planting programmes, support of overseas conservation and environmental projects, among others, have impressed judges and could see them clinch the Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the finals in December at the London's Wembley Stadium and Sustainability Award in this year's SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards.
Craig Allan, ABAX Director Global Partnerships, said: "We have had a tremendous 12 months at ABAX, not only have we been able to grow the UK offering, but we have expanded our suite of innovative solutions to help even more business owners and fleet managers as they strive to be more efficient and productive.
"Corporate social responsibility is something that ABAX takes very seriously. We are honoured to work closely with and alongside several organisations both in the UK and overseas that put ecology and the environment at their heart."
