As business owners, finding new ways to optimize your daily operations is crucial as you keep up with the ever-changing demands of your industry. And when it comes to your fleet, there are tools available that can help you leverage your data and turn them into dollars. Telematic systems, like the Shell Telematics Program, are an invaluable resource that not only efficiently tracks your fleet but also focuses on driver safety, fleet compliance, vehicle emissions and vehicle health. Let's explore in depth how having a fleet telematic system in place can positively impact your business.

How Telematics Work

Unlike competitors, Shell’s fleet tracking telematics goes beyond just presenting “dots on a map.” Accurate vehicle tracking and in-vehicle coaching work to improve efficiency and maximize your fleet’s profit. These systems enable you to view detailed, real-time data on your vehicles and access it remotely from a single platform. Patented algorithms provide detailed and accurate information, such as vehicle locations viewed in real-time, along with a completed trip history.

Benefits of Telematics

With the Shell Telematics Program, you’ll gain access to the insights you need to get the most out of your fleet. Here is a breakdown of some of the top benefits of adding telematics to your fleet. 

  1. Enhanced Productivity: Telematics delivers real-time data on multiple operational facets like vehicle location, driver behaviour, fuel usage, and maintenance requirements, boosting overall productivity.

  2. Safety Measures: Telematics ensures safety through real-time monitoring of driving behaviour, instant crash notifications, driver coaching, and proactive vehicle maintenance to prevent mechanical failures and reduce accident risks.

  3. Optimized Fleet Management: By tracking vehicle location, route efficiency, and traffic conditions, telematics aids in resource allocation based on current data, optimizing operations and resulting in time and fuel savings.

  4. Regulatory Compliance: Organizations utilize telematics data collection, monitoring, and reporting to uphold compliance with industry-specific regulations.

  5. Insurance Assessment Improvement: Telematics enables insurers to adopt personalized, data-driven assessments by utilizing real-time data on driver behaviour, facilitating better risk assessment, claims management, and fraud reduction.

  6. Integration Capabilities: Telematics seamlessly integrates with various technologies like fleet management systems, navigation apps, and vehicle diagnostics to enhance functionality and deliver tailored solutions as per industry needs and business objectives.

  7. Sustainability Advancements: Telematics promotes sustainability by encouraging fuel efficiency, eco-driving practices, optimized routing, proactive maintenance, and carbon footprint tracking. This aids fleets in reducing environmental impact, meeting sustainability goals, and aligning with global climate change initiatives.
