RAC boosts fleet telematics capabilities with new acquisition
The new venture gives the RAC full ownership of its vehicle diagnostic information and the ability to read a market leading depth of data from the broad vehicle parc.
RAC Telematics managing director Nick Walker said: “The announcement today of the acquisition of Nebula Systems is really the first step in a series of developments that will lead to the RAC moving from a reactive, to a proactive and ultimately predictive breakdown service. This is a deal that will give our telematics systems much greater capability and will really position the RAC as leaders in vehicle status data.
“For a fleet manager or business owner, the RAC Telematics system will provide complete clarity into the health and behaviour of their vehicles which means they can be proactive about dealing with issues before they develop into the kind of problems that could take a vehicle off the road. This will help to reduce costs and downtime, leading to more efficient fleet management.
“This is a deal that represents a great leap forward for RAC Telematics in terms of what it can do for RAC members, and also provides a platform for future developments in this exciting technological area.”
