About Us

Large UK fleets including Tesco, Asda, Virgin Media, South West Water and many more have adopted Lightfoot to improve the safety and efficiency of their drivers, and to support their transition to Electric Vehicles.

Proven to improve fuel consumption by up to 15% and to reduce accidents by up to 40%, Lightfoot is endorsed by all major fleet insurers and adopts a unique approach by positively engaging with drivers both real time in-cab and via a gamification and rewards platform via the app.

Most companies who turn to Lightfoot have had telematics systems for years which provided a wealth of data to managers who are then relied for onward communication and resolution. Companies have realised that this approach is fundamentally broken and the wrong way around. Instead, they look to Lightfoot’s bottom-up approach to engage and reward drivers, empowering those in the driving seat to drive change. They also look to Lightfoot’s underlying telematics platform to ensure they continue to receive everything they’d expect from a market leading telematics solution and more.

Lightfoot is widely recognised as the natural successor to telematics. Lightfoot’s growth is not only due to the unique technology that is proven to transform the driver performance of entire fleets without management intervention, but also due to unique Electric Vehicle capabilities that support customers’ transition to EVs, including:

  • Comprehensive visibility of EV drivetrain data including Range, SoC, SoH, Charging status, charge history and utilisation – all visible within the telematics portal
  • Optimised range and safety through in-coach driver coaching optimised for EVs
  • Conformity of driving behaviour across the fleet which ensures consistency of range across all drivers
  • Automated Charge Expense Reporting via the driver App (for eg. claiming Home Charge expenses)
  • Range and SoC via the Driver App

The results speak for themselves.

up to 15% MPG gain
up to 40% accident reduction
up to 45% downtime reduction

Lightfoot is proven to improve fuel consumption by up to 15% and to reduce accidents by up to 40%. It can also help users achieve significant reductions in CO2 and NoX emissions.

What's more, Lightfoot's market-leading technology, which connects seamless with a vehicle's own onboard computers, is able to significantly increase the performance and range of electric vehicles.

Many companies that turn to Lightfoot have operated telematics systems for years. In some cases these amounted to little more than vehicle trackers. Others did provide useful data to managers but processes had to be put in place to communicate results, implement training and resolve issues.

These companies have now realised though that this approach is fundamentally broken and the wrong way around. Instead, they look to Lightfoot’s bottom-up approach to engage and reward drivers, empowering those in the driving seat to drive change. Fleet managers also look to Lightfoot’s underlying telematics platform to ensure they continue to receive everything they’d expect from a market leading telematics solution and a whole lot more.

Taken together, this makes Lightfoot the most effective and comprehensive fleet management, fleet compliance and telematics solution on the market.

  • First Notification of Loss

  • Business and Private expense reporting

Lightfoot: The evolution of telematics

Identify Charges in-App

Lightfoot is widely recognised as the natural successor to telematics. Lightfoot’s growth is not only due to the unique technology that is proven to transform the driver performance of entire fleets without management intervention, but also due to unique Electric Vehicle capabilities that support customers’ transition to EVs, including:

  • Comprehensive visibility of EV drivetrain data including vehicle range, battery state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH), charging status, charge history and utilisation – all visible within the telematics portal
  • Optimised range and safety through in-coach driver coaching optimised for EVs
  • Conformity of driving behaviour across the fleet which ensures consistency of range across all drivers
  • Automated Charge Expense Reporting via the driver App (for eg. claiming Home Charge expenses)
  • Range and state-of-charge information via the Driver App

Our timeline

Mark, our CEO

Lightfoot was born out of necessity back in 2013.

Our founder, Mark Roberts, was involved with a business that completed hybrid van conversions.

Despite the company’s advanced technology, Mark noticed that vehicles were not achieving their full potential. After much analysis, Mark realised the problem wasn’t with the van, it’s powertrain or its battery but with the driver.

He realised that the key to efficiency lay not in further development on the technology, but in training the driver of the vehicle.

As a result, Lightfoot was born.

We’ve been helping businesses and drivers save fuel and reduce emissions ever since and, today, our technology is used by hundreds of companies across the UK.
