Kinesis seeks telematics tech partnerships with fleet suppliers
Kinesis is looking to develop further fleet supplier partnerships for its cloud-based vehicle tracking service under a new reseller programme covering the UK and overseas.
Launched in 2015, Kinesis offers real-time monitoring with the provision of arrival time and vehicle location data to customers, plus added features such as a mobile app, vehicle-use data and driver performance analysis; it’s currently being used to track 130,000 vehicles worldwide.
The business is now seeking further tie-ups with suppliers in the fleet sector to bring added value through a tracking service that can be integrated with other solutions. This includes fuel card suppliers, with the solution have been designed to incorporate fuel card data, giving fleet operations managers a single platform for their insight and performance activity – Kinesis already has reseller agreements in place with Drive Card, Wex, DKV, Certas and Fuelmate.
And the Kinesis team also say that suppliers of fleet software, financial services and insurance can benefit from the increased value of offering a telematics service.
“With our recent acquisitions of telematics businesses the group has boosted its technical capability and resources in this area and that has given us a strong platform for growth. The company has already established a presence in the US, Europe and the Far East and by making Kinesis more widely available through partners, we will be well placed to meet the demands of what continues to be a growing market,” said Greville Coe, group managing director – telematics at Radius Payment Solutions, the company behind Kinesis.
