It’s important to find the fleet management system that’s right for you. Therefore, you may need to spend a bit of time researching your options and asking questions. When looking into telematics systems, you may think that there are lots of similar options on the market. So how do you find the right telematics for you? Well, if you know what questions to ask, you’ll be able to scout out the superior products in no time.
For example, plenty of companies will rely on averages and estimates to provide their statistics. But when you’re looking to integrate a telematics system into your fleet, guess-work simply won’t do! Take a look at The Movolytics Difference to understand more about why tracking the likes of driver behaviours and fuel consumption needs to be done properly.
What else needs to be correctly tracked when it comes to telematics systems? If you find yourself asking questions like this then take a look below at the list of questions that we believe you should be asking telematics companies when shopping around for the right fleet management system for you. We believe that you should have all of the information at your disposal when you’re making a business decision and understand that it’s common sense to shop around. We hope you’ll appreciate our flexibility and commitment to honesty. We also know that our offering is one of the best around, so have provided our own answers to the below Q&A, which will give you a bit of perspective when quizzing other telematics providers!
Here are the questions to ask a telematics company:
Movolytics updates every 30 seconds.
The majority of systems record mileage through GPS. However, GPS works using ‘as the crow flies’ distances, which don’t account for turns in the road, changes to the vehicles speed, and even satellite drift. Superior systems like Movolytics will track mileage from the odometer.
Rather than just tracking when the ignition key is turned, Movolytics connects directly to the vehicle’s engine management system to give true idling.
Thank to Movolytics’ patented software, the system can show exact fuel usage and wastage in a monetary figure.
Cheaper and older systems will use GPS to measure speed, which provides inaccurate results. This is because it provides an average speed between two points, rather than giving the exact speed. Movolytics can take the speed directly from the speedometer.
Older systems will use accelerometers to collate driver behaviour. For a more accurate profile, look for software that will take the information directly from the vehicle’s engine management system, like Movolytics.
This is a rather rare feature when it comes to telematics systems but is an excellent feature to have access to. Systems like Movolytics that link directly to the vehicle will be able to actively report any vehicle faults when they occur.
Why not simplify your technology and have everything in one place? The Movolytics platform allows for two-way texting, at no additional cost.
