Telematics for fleet and asset management is a rapidly expanding field, both in terms of technological advances and a broader embrace of technology within the industry. Telematics has evolved from basic tracking to integrated navigation and now to back-office integration and driver-assistance systems for safety. Driver behavior directly impacts fuel consumption and vehicle wear and tear, as well as safety and the probability of accidents.
However, as impressive as these new telematics capabilities may be, the second component of the industry’s current growth has perhaps the greatest overall impact. More and more companies, even smaller businesses, are using telematics to control their fleets, according to Dr. Philipp Von Witzendorff, Director of Vehicle Management for Daimler FleetBoard. And among those already using telematics with their fleets, “We see a much more intense use for logistics, a value chain penetrated by telematics,” he explains. Telematics data from vehicles is just the first step in controlling and steering the whole system.
Providing fleet operators with the driver behavior data is not enough. Instead data must be presented and interpreted by telematics solution providers in a format that can be translated into operational changes. In light of this, Telematics Update has released a Fleet & Asset Management Report to help telematics solution providers position themselves as front-runners in this space.
The 140 page report includes topics such as:
This report was collated from direct converations and interviews with fleet and other key players in the value chain to ensure it drills into the issues at the core of the fleet telematics industry. Experts from McDonalds, UPS, FedEX, John Deere, NXP, FleetMatics amongst others gave Telematics Update a first hand insight into their challenges, solutions and stratgeies.
The complimentatry brochure includes the methodology, full contents and list of figures and research highlights. It available to download via the website: http://www.telematicsupdate.com/fleet-report/index.php
