Thanks to a unique blend of innovative technologies, vehicles are kept at peak efficiency. Everything can be monitored, analysed and acted upon, including vehicle health checks, individual driver’s behaviour and fleet running cost. Less time finding out how the fleet is working, more time to run your business.

  • Ford vehicle connectivity ensures constant connection, no matter the location, for vehicles which need to stay on the move efficiently, smoothly and safely.

    Ford Telematics is a fleet management tool which includes a multi-make functionality. It allows fleet managers to manage and optimise all vehicles, regardless of manufacturer, through the easy-to-use interface.

    Complementary to Ford Telematics is a suite of applications enabled by Ford connected vehicle technology. These apps allow fleet managers to know who is driving which vehicle, digitise daily vehicle checks, and receive direct reports on damage or mechanical issues. For each driver’s peace-of-mind, Live Lock status lets you check all vehicle doors are locked at a glance. You can even access your Command Centre in the app to lock or unlock doors remotely.

  • Ford Telematics helps deliver improved uptime, increased efficiency and reduced administration for fleet operators. A redesigned dashboard clearly tracks vehicle performance and health alerts, as well as driver behaviour and fuel efficiency, providing clear insights to help fleet managers operate a safe, legal and efficient fleet.

    What you need to know:

    • Live Map, GPS tracking and Geofencing capabilities, ensure that you know where your fleet is at all times to maximise your asset utilisation
    • Vehicle Health status and configurable Service Alerts highlight vehicles which require immediate attention and remind you about impending scheduled services. This can help you avoid costly repairs and unexpected downtime
    • Driving insights such as harsh driving and seat belt usage, provide opportunities to improve driver safety.
    • Fuel monitoring and efficiency data identify areas of waste, to reduce running costs
    • Our multi-make functionality, combined with a compatible modem, ensures that Ford Telematics works with your entire fleet, including non-Ford vehicles
