ARI, a global fleet management company, has announced it is teaming with General Motors (GM) Fleet Connected Services to integrate information provided by the embedded telematics hardware into ARI insights, the company’s proprietary fleet management portal, to deliver real-time visibility into the operating conditions of fleet vehicles.
The agreement with GM Fleet Connected Services offers a seamless telematics solution that provides the transparency necessary to better control operating costs and help improve productivity.
General Motors’ factory-installed telematics device is standard equipment for most Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, eliminating the need for third-party hardware and the required installation costs and downtime.
Vital information such as driver behavior and vehicle location flows seamlessly from the vehicle’s telematics system into ARI’s data warehouse where it is integrated with the customer’s entire range of fleet data and available for comprehensive analysis via ARI insights.
Customers will also receive the benefit of OEM-direct data, providing access to a greater range of information with precision accuracy. In addition to traditional telematics metrics such as fuel consumption and maintenance compliance, fleet operators will have enhanced visibility into vehicle diagnostics, idle times, downtime, and more.
