Telematics communicates to Fleet Managers what a vehicle in the field is doing. Smartrak uses the OBD-II as the tracking device that sends the telematics data to the Smartrak platform, where it can be viewed and reported on.
This means information such as where a vehicle is, the speed it is travelling and how it is being driven are visible to Fleet Managers in almost real-time. Tracking a vehicle in the field provides visibility of the vehicle’s use, enabling effective decision making.
By knowing exactly where a vehicle is, managers can respond to changing schedules and confidently update customers on timeframes.
With Smartrak’s solution, the telematics data that’s collected can be analysed and reports automatically prepared for a range of factors. This includes vehicle usage to identify cost savings and efficiencies.
Fleet Managers can effectively manage their drivers behaviour by identifying web vehicles are exceeding speed limits.
They can also review and manage driver fatigue by identifying how long a driver has been behind the wheel.
These are valuable aids in ensuring organisations meet safety requirements.
