Is Commericial Fleet Telematics Technology Helpful?

September 15, 2020


If your company operates and maintains a fleet of vehicles of business use, you may want to look into the benefits of Telematics Software. Not only to help with security, but also with risk management, and finances.

You’ve probably heard of telematics, either in insurance, or in vehicle security, and these are often called ‘black boxes’. Whilst these black boxes are often used these days for younger drivers to obtain cheaper insurance, the business world has been using the technology to keep their drivers, vehicles, and cargo safe.

Here’s a few examples of how telematics could help your busines:

Reduce operational costs

Telematics software can help keep drivers updated on upcoming traffic concerns or road hazards, offer rerouting options, and locate preferred petrol stations,all of which can contribute to improved fuel efficiency and reduced operational costs.

Encourage safe driving

Telematics allows employees to better monitor their individual driving habits and detect flaws that they might not have realised otherwise.

Bolster fleet security

Employers can utilise telematics tracking to detect the location and route of any stolen vehicles, simplifying the vehicle recovery process.

Ensure vehicle maintenance

Telematics software can detect a wide range of vehicle breakdown or maintenance problems, such as engine issues or diagnostic concerns.

Reduce administrative costs

Telematics allows employers to digitise records that would otherwise have to be maintained manually, which can be a time-consuming process.
