Enterprise Telematics Enables Fleet Optimization
ST. LOUIS, July 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Enterprise Fleet Management is partnering with Geotab to enhance its fleet management services for business customers. By partnering with Geotab, Enterprise is able to integrate GPS tracking technology into its Enterprise Telematics fleet monitoring solution.
Enterprise Telematics is a web-based application that helps businesses manage their fleet operations in real time to optimize fleet use, routing, logistics, engine diagnostics and safety. Enabled by a small device equipped into each fleet vehicle, the application captures diagnostic and location data whenever the vehicle is in use. Through the new partnership with Geotab, Enterprise Telematics can be customized with options such as dispatching or a driver ID check-in mechanism, as well as the ability to integrate with a business' existing fleet management software.
"Partnering with Geotab gives fleet managers the necessary visibility into how their fleets are actually operating in the field," said Steve Bloom, president, Enterprise Fleet Management. "With these new insights and features, they can better optimize their fleets, saving money through reduced fuel consumption, more efficient use and improved safety."
Enterprise customers want the most efficient and safest fleets possible. These improvements are driven by fleet managers' desires to combat high fuel costs, taxes, and vehicle maintenance fees while improving safety. Moreover, the Enterprise Telematics application's insight into a vehicle's location can enhance a business' customer relationships by providing accurate updates on service or delivery arrival estimates.
Geotab's GPS-enabled hardware supports real-time vehicle location tracking, speed, and idling management notifications to ensure maximum driver productivity and the most efficient route navigation. Enterprise Telematics will maintain a detailed summary of each trip, including where vehicles spent their time, which can be useful for accurately billing customers, asset utilization and ensuring efficient use of work time. To improve driver safety, the application can provide driver feedback via audible alerts when certain parameters are crossed, such as driving too fast or braking too hard. Enterprise Telematics also reads engine information to proactively monitor potential engine shortfalls.
Enterprise Telematics is supported through a partnership with Sprint, Strategic Telecom Solutions and Geotab.
