Vehicle fleets play a critical role on a daily basis for many different companies. If a particular vehicle isn’t available when a member of that company needs it, they can’t do their job. Along with the impact it has on the running of a company, operating a fleet also involves significant cost too. Given the importance and cost often involved, easier ways to manage said fleet are usually sought with the help of a fleet manager and of course, fleet telematics. From keeping costs down to keeping an eye on the whereabouts of each vehicle within the fleet; fleet managers have a tough job on their hands. Having something to make it easier is therefore a huge advantage and that’s where fleet telematics comes in. The question is, just what is fleet telematics?
