There are many businesses with fleets of vehicles at the core of their business model, like taxi companies, truck rental services, and pickup/delivery services, just to name a few. Any fleet manager should have a good understanding of what fleet telematics is and how it can benefit their business.

EnSight Plus Infographic: What is Fleet Telematics WEB

The term telematics evolved from combining the words telecommunications (the exchange of information across distance) and informatics (the science of processing data). A more direct definition of telematics is a data collecting system that can provide you with guidance and actionable insights straight from your machine.

A fleet telematics solution can provide information on a vehicle’s:

  • Location
  • Speed and idle time
  • Fuel economy
  • Engine temperature
  • Auxiliary loads
  • Power take-off status
  • Odometer readings
  • Individual tire pressures
  • Seat belt status
  • And more…

The wealth of data provided by fleet telematics tracking can support immediate and ongoing optimization of operations – a great benefit to managers seeking new ways to drive costs down. Incidentally, this level of fleet optimization also tends to reduce the organization’s carbon footprint, providing a unique competitive advantage for companies that are considering a more socially-conscious brand image.
