With the COVID-19 pandemic encouraging more businesses than ever before to embrace a mixed or grey fleet, Trakm8 has launched a new telematics solution that can easily be installed in employee vehicles.
The Connect 430S has been engineered specifically for use in the fleet sector, providing a compact and robust solution that can be quickly and easily installed into any vehicle thanks to its self-install option. Via deep CANBus connectivity, the C430S provides fleet managers with data rich insights into driver behaviour and vehicle status, alongside highly accurate GPS location data.
Using Trakm8’s Insight online portal, fleet managers can access information from this rich array of data and use it to monitor their fleet, optimise efficiency and monitor fleet health to reduce vehicle down time. What’s more, the C430S can also help businesses identify driver training opportunities – ultimately promoting fleet safety. Coupling the C430S with Trakm8’s In-cab Driver Feedback Display and Driver ID device (ACC750) provides live driver coaching and scoring with a wide range of real-time alerts, highlighting for example harsh braking, cornering, and acceleration, using clear visuals and audible prompts.
Designed to make the transition to grey fleet as seamless as possible for businesses, the C430S can be easily moved from vehicle to vehicle, with the self-fit device connecting to a vehicle’s OBD socket via a ribbon cable. Among the key insights the C430S delivers to fleets are real-time driver feedback, including alerts to speeding, harsh driving events such as braking, cornering and acceleration, and excessive idling.
Chris Horbowyj, Channel Sales Director at Trakm8, said: “This innovative device provides users with a significant amount of vital vehicle information, helping drivers to optimise their time and bolstering fleet productivity. This reduces overheads by eliminating downtime and giving fleets the opportunity to be more fuel conscious. The data gathered by the device can also help strengthen fleets, as it provides information that will help fleet managers plan training by identifying areas of improvement.
“The ease of installation means the device can be simply plugged in without the costliness of an engineer. It’s particularly beneficial for grey fleets that need maximum flexibility. The C430S device is designed as a solution for fleets that are becoming increasingly reactive as ways of working continue to differ from traditional approaches.”
Trakm8’s latest technological offering continues to demonstrate the company’s commitment to state of the art solutions and innovative technology that help fleets adapt to the increase in grey fleets.
