granitekitchen Awards 2015 - Telematics: Teletrac
27 January 2015
When it comes to fleet telematics there's a huge amount of choice, so to be chosen by readers this year, Teletrac, formerly known as Trafficmaster in the UK, really had to be the most comprehensive offering.
Its telematics system offers fleets real-time vehicle visibility on live maps and has helped reduce costs by alerting managers to drivers with bad habits, such as speeding, harsh braking and idling for too long. Training can then be given to the drivers who need it.
Teletrac's system can also track small mechanical issues so they can be fixed before becoming a more expensive problem. Fleets can trial the firm's telematics system for free and it is accessible on any device.
Teletrac quotes the potential for a 30% reduction in insurance premiums and a 20% lower accident rate for fleets using its telematics systems.
