Volvo launches fleet management suite
Volvo is introducing a fleet management support solution through Amazon Alexa to bring a range of services to businesses.
The carmaker has created an Amazon Alexa skill dedicated to the needs of its fleet customers. The voice- or app-activated service gives access to a range of fleet management services, such as requesting specific vehicle information, booking a demonstrator, listening to the latest news from Volvo, and even requesting a meeting with a Volvo regional business sales manager.
The new solution is currently being trialled with a number of Volvo fleet customers who are being provided with an Amazon Echo Dot device.
Steve Beattie, head of business sales at Volvo Car UK, said: “With the Volvo Fleet Manager Skill, we continue to bring our fleet customers innovative solutions which harness the latest technology to make their lives easier. This new service allows our clients to use Alexa to get the information they need on the go, in real time, right down to understanding the CO2, BIK and P11D implications of our models.
“Voice-activated services are becoming a staple of many homes, but now its benefits are available to Volvo’s fleet clients, bringing businesses and their fleet managers greater convenience and connectivity.”
