By Nor Cal Vans Team | June 12, 2020

person using mobile phone - shutterstock_488393074If you’re a fleet operator or manager, then you’re probably always looking for ways to improve your business, but often times it’s hard to know where to start. What if you could monitor your fleet better and get actual vehicle data to help you analyze where to start making improvements?

The New Ford Telematics Service mobile-app, launched by Ford Commercial Solutions, can do just that. It’s a web-based software platform and subscription service that provides easy access to vehicle data, such as vehicle health alerts, reminders for vehicle service, analyzing driver behavior, and managing fuel usage.

With Ford Telematics, fleet managers can help:

Improve utilization: Keep track of fleet vehicles with GPS tracking and geofencing capabilities. Knowing exactly where vehicles are helps identify which driver is closest to the next call, plan more effectively and get the most out each vehicle.

Maximize vehicle availability: Receive proactive notifications and vehicle health alerts to plan and stay ahead. Workflow tools will help schedule services well in advance, avoid costly, unexpected repairs and reduce disruption to fleet operations.

Optimize running costs: Minimizing waste is crucial to every business. Fleet Managers can monitor the fuel consumption of all vehicles and identify areas of waste as well as their causes.

Protect drivers and vehicles: Manage the fleet and driver compliance every day with a range of notifications, including advance service reminders or a warning if a driver isn’t wearing their seatbelt. This helps managers act quickly and protect their staff, their vehicles and their operation.

Improve driver behavior: Valuable insights into driver behavior informs business of coaching opportunities to increase efficiency, reduce waste and improve compliance.

The Ford Telematics Drive mobile app is user-friendly, compatible with both iOS and Android devices, and can be easily downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play. It works by using Ford vehicle’s built-in modems to transfer the data directly from the vehicle into the cloud. This gives fleet managers real-time information to monitor their fleets using GPS tracking and geofencing, making it easy to process the data and provide the information needed to best serve customers.
