RAC Telematics Technology Standard on All Vehicles

Northern Irelands leading Vehicle Management Company DFC celebrates 25 years in business with this exciting new announcement.

Belfast-based DFC and the RAC have joined forces to provide market-leading Breakdown Recovery, Accident Management and Telematics services, ensuring the cutting edge vehicle technology is available for all customers.

Uel Butler CEO at DFC said: “We are pleased to announce that all DFC Contract Hire Vehicles, ordered from April 2015 will include RAC Telematics, Breakdown Cover and Accident Management as standard. Our new holistic fleet management approach will be widely available for all vehicle users.

“DFC has just celebrated 25 years supplying and managing vehicles in the UK and Ireland and this exciting new partnership with the RAC is a fantastic way to mark this milestone. This game changing approach, a first in Northern Ireland guarantees maximum cost savings on your vehicle(s), secures peace of mind and promises full GPS cover for your vehicles 24 hours a day, with the advantage of incorporating RAC Breakdown and Accident Management.”

RAC Corporate Sales Director Jenny Powley said: “We have developed a powerful relationship with DFC which will provide their customers with the level of Breakdown Cover and Accident Management they would expect from the DFC brand.”

A feature of this partnership is that businesses will also be able to buy RAC Telematics systems, whether they are a customer or not from DFC in Belfast.

This will provide further support to businesses looking to drive down costs and provide highly accurate insight into how fleets are functioning in terms of fuel consumption and driving styles.

The new partnership with the RAC will not only provide peace of mind for DFC’s customers in terms of breakdown, with eight out of ten vehicles being fixed at the roadside, but will also help support business and personal customers with a range of service enhancements.
