Telematics

Find out where your fuel is going

Telematics systems record vehicle data such as average speeds, fuel use, acceleration levels, idle times, braking and cornering habits – all of which contribute to efficiency, profitability and driver safety. Data can be transmitted securely to a web-based portal or stored on board.

Intel to lower your carbon footprint

Telematics make it easier to monitor and manage vehicles so you can take climate-friendly actions.

 

  • Maintenance alerts. Keep vehicles running efficiently by setting alerts to get vehicles serviced based on kilometres travelled.
  • Discourage speeding. Set alerts to warn drivers immediately when they use excessive fuel by breaching a speed limit.
  • Manage jobs efficiently. Use real-time information to send the closest driver to the job.
  • Cut excessive idling. Identify which vehicles are wasting fuel as they idle, and educate drivers about when to switch off.
  • Right-size your fleet

    Use telematics to find out how well your fleet is being used. Over-capacity is an opportunity to save thousands of dollars. Do you need all those vehicles – or just a better booking system?

  • Efficient driving is safer

    Driving style is critical to fuel efficiency – and safety. Some telematics systems create a leaderboard from drivers’ data so they can compare results and be rewarded for improvements.

Drivers with aggressive driving styles will use an average 10.9% more fuel than your average driver.
