Telematics is a broad term used to describe a variety of services that can be provided by connecting vehicles with devices that can track and monitor a number of metrics for your fleet. Telematics is GPS tracking, vehicle sensor monitoring, engine diagnostic measures, job and dispatch management, maintenance management, and everything in-between. Choosing to apply a telematics solution to your fleet does not force you to apply all these measures, but also doesn’t limit you to any single part of the solution.
As with telematics, “Fleet” is also a broad term. Both public and private sector fleets perform a range of duties. One solution does not fit all, and it is common for management teams to request all kinds of customizations as to track the data that really matters for them. Some organizations just wish to be able to organize dispatch jobs by closest most available vehicles. Others, wish to track time spend in GeoFence areas to monitor productivity and other metrics. While others still, just wish to track the accurate location of their vehicles at all times.
