How to maximise your fleet’s productivity with telematics

How to maximise your fleet’s productivity with telematics

Telematics plays a key role in helping fleets improve productivity, by providing better visibility of operations and performance.

EROAD fleet management software integrates data captured from its hardware, IoT devices, sensors, and cameras into a single interface. But our customers aren’t data scientists, they’re busy operators. To enable effective decision making, fleet managers need accurate, reliable data served up via simple, intuitive apps.

EROAD translates fleet data into actionable insights, enabling data-driven fleet management practices. This helps improve safety, ensure compliance, reduce costs, and lessen impact on the environment.

“EROAD’s fleet management system is essential for businesses with substantial vehicle fleets. For us, it translates to enhanced fleet efficiency, streamlined compliance management, reduced operating costs, improved safety, data analytics, and detailed reporting.” Programmed

So what is telematics and how does it work?

Telematics merges telecommunications and information technology together to gather a wide range of data about your fleet, including:

  • GPS location
  • Route(s) taken
  • Vehicle speed
  • Driver details
  • Driver behaviour events, such as hard braking
  • Entry, exit and time spent on site
  • Fuel usage
  • and much more!

That information provides powerful insights, helping you to increase productivity, and make better informed decisions about your business.

EROAD’s advanced telematics platform helps you manage all your vehicles and assets on one platform. In addition to fleet visibility, EROAD reduces administration and aids compliance with work-time rules, RUC, and vehicle licencing. It also helps maximise your off-road RUC refunds.

Its driver, maintenance and safety features can also enhance your safety culture and help improve efficiency.

Every day, businesses use EROAD telematics to help identify where efficiencies can be made across their operation.

Fleets can monitor and manage critical areas that impact on productivity, including:

  • fuel consumption
  • scheduling and prioritisation
  • vehicle activity (including off-road travel)
  • speed and driver behaviour
  • vehicle route and location
  • performance and maintenance schedules

You get a bird’s-eye view of your entire fleet, its overall health, safety, compliance and productivity at the touch of a button. What’s more, you can easily identify areas that need focus and also actively respond to events as they happen.

This enables you to reduce costs and allocate your team and vehicles more efficiently and productively. EROAD also helps save you time by automating a variety of, otherwise time-consuming, manual processes.

The result is a leaner, more efficient, higher performing fleet that can continue to grow your business and bottom line.


“EROAD fleet tracking is fantastic – we’re increasingly seeing benefits in reporting. It’s even more important than real-time information because it’s giving us a history of everything from mileage, event logs to fuel efficiency and maintenance. With servicing, for example, it’s starting to build a picture that helps us make decisions about vehicle replacement, based on factors like fuel economy and repair costs. It’s creating more and more information that’s really beneficial to our fleet.”
