In-Car Cleverness, has launched a smartphone app to complement its onboard telematics device for company car and van fleets.
The app delivers ‘on the road’ functionality for the driver, including location-based services ‘nearest fuel’ and ‘local parking’.
Both services provide ranking by distance from current position, as well as cost.
‘Journey logger’ allows the driver to allocate each trip to either business or personal usage remotely.
This data is then fed automatically into the central administrative function, allowing for accurate and time-saving HMRC compliance.
With an estimated 100,000 cars and vans stolen every year, the new In-Car Cleverness app provides new levels of vehicle security.
By enabling the valet mode on the app, the driver will be automatically alerted by text and email should the vehicle move beyond a 100m perimeter of its location or exceed 25mph.
In mirroring the online dashboard, drivers will also have visibility of their driving style (speeding, acceleration, braking etc), vehicle health check monitoring and speeding events.
Developers at In-Car Cleverness will continue to add new features to the user experience in the coming months. The first of these will be improved analysis of driving risk, which will overlay driving behaviours with road ratings.
The app will, initially, be launched on Apple (iOS7) with an Android version due for release later in the year.
In-Car Cleverness has been designed to support fleets regardless of the size. It is now available on a two to five-year lease scheme, starting from £10 per vehicle per month.
