A Huge Congratulations to our Sponsored Party Matthew Wrigglesworth

A huge congratulations to Matthew Wrigglesworth displaying his talent and dedication once again at Hull City Hall late last month.

The 26 year old earned his fifth career win and the English Challenge Middleweight belt with only 6 weeks preparation, showing that hard work and dedication really does pay off.

At Direct Traffic we are extremely proud to sponsor such a inspirational, devoted athlete and genuinely decent guy. During a mainline interview feature in the Hull Daily Mail the Young Bull said:

““I took a big risk taking this fight at just six weeks’ notice against someone who was the favourite in his own backyard. But without risk there is no reward and I’m hoping there’s a big reward from this,” said Wigglesworth. I’m in this business to win big titles and I want this to be my profession and to do that I need to climb the ladder. I feel like this win can help me do that because I’ve had great feedback and people are hopefully taking notice now.

Someone has got to give me a shot now because I showed what I can do with six weeks preparation while holding down a full-time job. Imagine if I had eight or 10 weeks to prepare and wasn’t having to work as a mechanic. This was my toughest fight yet and the best performance I’ve given but there’s lots to work on and I’m planning on showing what I’ve got when I box in Hull later this year.”

With tickets soon to be on sale for his upcoming fight at the KC Stadium in Hull; all the staff here at Direct Traffic will be wishing Matty and his team the best of luck and with hope a shot at the English title in the early part of 2019.

Once again a huge congratulations, we are proud to offer our continued support.

DTM to Launch Bespoke Software Platform & Android Operations App

DTM was formed back in 1992 at a time when desktop computers hadn't yet been invented and 6 years before Apple would release the first iMac desktop computer. Since then the business has progressed ever forward implementing new technologies in parallel with in which they have become available.

25 years later the business makes use of just about any and all digital tools available to it. From in-house dedicated servers for the fast, efficient and secure storage of traffic management data to fleet telematics systems providing GPS tracking and data on how our growing fleet is operating at all times.

Now as the world moves ever closer to a digital age and data becomes the basis upon which some of the most important decisions about business and the wellbeing of people as a whole are made; DTM are committed to ensuring that the business takes full advantage of the benefits available through data collection and associated digital platforms.

As such 2018 will see the introduction of an in-house developed bespoke software platform which will integrate all office based activities with information needed for our operatives to work correctly and safely at all times. This transformation will take the business closer to it's target of a paperless business environment and will include an Android based application for our operatives on the road, increasing efficiency, improving on time scales and importantly the safety of our staff and the public that we encounter during daily activities.
