CHALLENGE
Wordsworth Excavations is a market leader in bulk earthworks and excavation, demolition and ground stabilisation services. Wordsworth operates a substantial fleet including excavators, dozers, dump trucks and more than 25 eight-wheeler tipper wagons. With complex excavation projects, locating vehicles and being able to instantly communicate with fleet operatives is vital to ensure efficiency on each and every project.

Wordsworth serves sectors including commercial and industrial, regional distribution, quarrying, environmental, healthcare, residential, defence and security and infrastructure.

Our investment in Storm enables us to immediately locate our people, communicate with them instantly and increase efficiency throughout our operations. Instead of making multiple calls to multiple operatives, we can make one address and reach all of our people at the touch of a button.
