Vermillion MVT announce new pay as you go service  Preston based vehicle tracking manufacturer Vermillion MVT today announced plans to implement a new flexible pricing structure for their Vehicle Tracking products as they look to increase their existing customer base.

Currently Vehicle Tracking products from the firm are only available through contract but as they look to make their Vehicle Tracking products more accessible, a pay as you go facility has now been added to the list of payment options for clients.

The Firm, which is part of SDS Technology Group, hope the move will appeal to smaller businesses who were deterred previously from entering into a contract especially in the current economic time. Vermillion view this flexible approach as a way to educate businesses of the benefits of vehicle tracking at an affordable price.

Similar to the pay as you go mobile structure, customers will be able to choose a payment facility that is tailored to their requirements so that they have full control over what vehicles they would like to track within their fleet and when.


Vermillion who produce all the software and hardware for the product in-house, currently use Google maps which gives users a plethora of options in how they wish to follow their vehicles. Further functionality include the ability to help companies understand how to reduce their carbon emissions, fuel costs and improve duty of care for staff. The result is an essential tool for a business to become more profitable and efficient.

The pay as you go system will also enable Vermillion to target companies which have smaller fleets and hence a tighter budget on technology solutions. Group director Andrew Hardman said that the move would enable businesses to access technology that will help a business run more effectively in these current economic times. Vehicle tracking and all its benefits he said, is now truly only a cost of a cup of tea a day.

To find out more information on about the Pay as You Go pricing schedule, customers can go to Vermillion MVT’s website at  or telephone 0845 467 712
