In an open letter to the president, Dr. Fred Mugambi Mwirigi of Jommo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology made referrence to the model of Stoic’s fleet management system as a possible technological solution to the increasing road carnage on Kenyan roads. In the letter, he suggested that all PSVs (Public Service Vehicles) be fitted with trackers to enable police track errant drivers, since the system would automatically raise red flags whenever there was overspeeding, route deviation and such other errant behaviour.
“We installed the Stoic Fleet watch in all our vehicles and below is the report of how it has helped us reduce costs and improve productivity.
Vehicles are coming on time, overtime has reduced
Exact location of vehicles is known so delivery of goods can be approximated without delays
Cost of mobile calls has reduced drastically as we do not need to keep calling the drivers of the vehicles
We can now do more that two trips a day and productivity has greatly improved
Fuel costs have drastically improved and we can approximate the exact amount used
One of our vehicles was almost hijacked but through Stoic we could locate exactly where it was
We’re able to get rid of employees who are misusing company resources over the years using Stoic Fleet Management System. ”

“Anybody who runs a fleet of vehicles knows that maintenance costs of these vehicles can be absolutely ridiculous! I used to buy my shocks, springs, and bushes from Robs Magic and all the time I used to fight them about their quality thinking it was bad. This is because I would expect at least 20,000 km warranty but only got 10,000km worth. What I didn’t know was that my drivers were misusing the vehicle hence the wear and tear. Now since we fitted the Stoic Fleetwatch I’ve been getting 30,000km worth on all of them!”
“I can see exactly where the driver is and they cannot do their own private jobs as it shows clearly. I am recommending this system to everyone I know because I want them to reap the benefits as I have and we can in turn can all build the economy.”
