MAN Truck & Bus has launched a new generation telematics solution called MAN EcoStyle developed with OEM manufacturer Microlise, for its customers in the Middle East and Africa.
Microlise and MAN Truck & Bus already have a long-standing partnership in the UK which is now being expanded to the Middle East under the new brand name MAN EcoStyle. MAN EcoStyle has been designed to help transport operators to improve driving standards, reduce vehicle wear and tear, enhance safety levels and improve vehicle health, as well as reduce overall operating costs, emissions and fuel usage.
Microlise is the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partner for MAN in the UK with every new truck delivered with telematics hardware on-board as standard. The same is planned in the Middle East, with customers choosing what level of telematics service they would like to receive at the point of sale.
Together with MAN ProfiDrive, the companies certified driver training, MAN EcoStyle also allows for tailor made driver development to reduce the operating costs of the vehicle and thus increase efficiency.
MAN EcoStyle will provide the tools to help monitor and motivate drivers, as well as understand where and how vehicles are operated. It helps to reduce waiting times through real-time vehicle tracking and allows for a more efficient vehicle dispatching. The vehicle location will always be visible and the operators will be able to record what they have been doing, how much they are being used, how economically and safely they are being driven, and know that they are secure.
