Accurate mileage capture dominates fleet operators’ top 5 telematic needs

The company, part of the Automotive & Insurance Solutions Group of Companies, undertook research among 20 of the UK’s leading independent business fleet managers, which shows that the top five needs of operators in the UK are:

1.    Accurate business mileage capture

2.    Cost reduction tools

3.    Management of duty of care responsibilities

4.    Efficiency improvements

5.    Accident detection with forensic analysis


While cost reduction options are among the most basic of requirements, fleet managers admit that advanced features, such as detailed after-incident forensics and real-time remote vehicle diagnostics and e-scheduling are gaining in importance as new business drivers.

Tim Eaves, commercial director of In-Car Cleverness, said: ‘We have already seen how those who are committed to delivering the right solutions that telematics ranks high in their thought patterns for 2013.

‘Now we are starting to see the first signs that those operators with the foresight to think ahead are already crystallising what they want telematics to deliver for them.’
