The Algorithm People and Elmtronics partners up to help businesses cut carbon

The Algorithm People has signed a partnership agreement with Elmtronics to help organisations to decarbonise their fleets.

The Algorithm People provides data-based analysis of a company’s vehicle operations, enabling them to pinpoint which vehicles and routes are best suited to electrification.

Their software also optimises the use of electric vehicles (EVs) once they are deployed, helping customers to achieve the best possible return on investment.

Meanwhile, Elmtronics provides intelligent EV charging infrastructure to some of the largest private and public sector organisations in the UK. Its solutions include load-balancing for charging multiple vehicles.

Colin Ferguson, CEO of The Algorithm People, said: “We are excited to partner with Elmtronics, which has built a great reputation across the UK for providing high quality EV charging infrastructure.

“By working together, we can provide our clients accurate, expert advice on the electrification process. This includes planning which vehicles EVs can replace, as well as optimising the deployment and use of EVs and their charging infrastructure.”

Dan Martin, CEO of Elmtronics, added: “Accurate data analytics from The Algorithm People really helps to build the business case for adoption of EVs. It also provides further assurance that the charging infrastructure we provide is perfectly tailored to meet each client’s operational needs.”

The agreement will also enable Elmtronics to offer access to My Transport Planner, which has been developed by The Algorithm People.  

The web-based pay-as-you-go vehicle planning tool can suit operations where vehicles visit multiple sites per shift.

By optimising route planning and vehicle utilisation, it says that My Transport Planner can cut total fleet mileage by up to 20%, translating into savings on fuel costs and emissions.

“Deploying My Transport Planner is the first step towards creating a decarbonisation road map,” said Ferguson. “It generates substantial savings which can then be reinvested in EVs, creating a virtuous cycle of reductions in emissions and overheads.”

The companies are jointly hosting a series of free webinars for organisations interested in finding out more about this new initiative. Anyone interested in attending a webinar should email [email protected].
