DT Trucks

DT Trucks has partnered with ProVision Vehicle Cameras to supply CameraMatics products on its Isuzu trucks. CameraMatics is said to turn every Isuzu truck into a ‘Smart Truck’ through its cloud-connected portal that provides tracking and vehicle driving data in real time. Fleet operators are able to get HD footage of any incidents in order to better manage risk and mitigare insurance payouts.

The Smart DVR, with up to 2TB of storage, can be connected to as many as 9 HD cameras. The system can be fitted to all ranged of Isuzu trucks from N-series to F-series.

George Smith sales director and dealer principal at DT Trucks in Hoddesdon said: “We were looking for a single system for one of our customers and, right from the initial engagement, we were impressed with how ProVision’s team handled the enquiry, supported us with information and, of course, the quality and functionality of their solution. After that engagement, we realised that this could be of benefit to our wider group of customers, so discussions began about the dealer programme.
“The deciding factor for us was how ProVision structured their offering to make our lives as easy as possible. The online portal provides all the information we need, as well as an online quote and pricing builder. Hassle-free aftersales support means that they deal with any and all technical issues directly while we can concentrate on doing what we do best.”
