Costs linked to vehicle ownership and usage are significant for private users as well as for fleet managers. Streamlining processes and controlling costs during the whole vehicle fleet life-cycle has become crucial for the sustainability of the business. Telematics is a key part of this strategy, enabling to increase efficiency of logistics and dispatch, manage fuel consumption and daily usage of the fleet.
Vodafone Automotive offers solutions for the optimised management of vehicle fleets – be it commercial vehicles, cars or trucks - and helps businesses get the quickest return on investment.
Crash reconstruction is made easier with telematics, as raw data provides precise information on the incident dynamics and cannot be manipulated. Until recently fleets represented a risky business segment for insurance companies who were not able to provide competitive insurance policies: since telematics now offers the opportunity to increase the transparency of vehicle usage and driving behaviour, fleets can expect more adequate premiums.
