Increasing fuel savings with Telematics

Fuel spend is the biggest expense for fleet companies. And some of the biggest contributors to increased fuel spend are wasted kilometres, bad driver behaviour, and fuel fraud. That’s where our solutions come in. They are designed specifically to address these unnecessary costs to your fleet. Using our data-driven telematics we will alert you to what is causing excessive fuel usage and enable you to take preventative measures. Similarly, the Intelligent Fuel Management solution will monitor your payments and alert you to suspicious behaviour and result in fuel savings.

How Telematics can save you money on fuel

Telematics will show you your vehicle's whereabouts at any time of the day or night. This technology lets you track driver behaviour and successfully reduce fleet accidents, vehicle maintenance costs and fuel consumption. With the data from telematics you can target bad driving behaviour because you can gauge if a driver is speeding, over-revving, breaking too fast, or taking an inefficient route. These bad behaviours’ result in unnecessary fuel expenditure and negatively impact your bottom line. Telematics can be used to counteract this behaviour. It’s an intelligent fleet tracking system that can be programmed to set alerts to inform drivers that they are speeding and correct the situation before it escalates. Or, if Fleet Managers notice persistent bad behaviour they can institute corrective training and coaching programmes.

Fuel saving with Intelligent Fuel Management

Our fuel management system offers extensive analysis and exception reporting using our in-house developed powerful software.
