The accuracy of data is also vitally important, in order for fleet managers to be able to ensure that are making decisions based on the latest relevant data
Colin Ferguson, managing director of fleet and optimisation at Trakm8 demonstrated this by explaining how their system operates: “Our devices send a signal over the air every minute, every 1,000 metres and every time a vehicle or asset changes direction by 30 degrees or more, ensuring that users are provided with the most up-to-date information as frequently as possible. This data is then instantly available via the web portal.”
Telematics systems are of invaluable use to fleets, offering numerous benefits, including lower costs, less wear and tear on vehicles, and higher driving standards.
But these systems also generate huge amounts of data, so itâ€™s key that fleet managers understand which data is relevant and how best to use it.
