BT launches intelligent telematics

BT Fleet has launched an end-to-end telematics product that integrates with its other products. Functions include: monitoring driver behaviour, measuring fuel performance and vehicle tracking.

image002 copy“There are many telematics solutions on the market, but this is the first which offers a complete end-to-end service,” said Ian Martin, strategy, transformation and marketing director at BT Fleet. “It provides users with data that’s key to the efficient management of a fleet and also makes use of that data intelligently.

“For example, if it detects a vehicle fault we’ll contact the driver to arrange for it to be repaired in a BT Fleet garage, making a cost saving and minimising vehicle downtime.

“It also integrates with our Accident Management product by triggering a notification to contact the driver and capture details of the incident and third party. We believe no one else in the fleet industry can pro-actively respond in this way.”

The telematics provides real-time data and can be delivered via a number of hardware, ranging from on-board diagnostics and hard-wired devices to in-cab light bars and dash cams.
