GreenRoad has added fuel management and vehicle health modules to its telematics system.
The vehicle health module helps managers predict and avoid expensive malfunctions and service disruptions by providing real-time, remote visibility into critical indicators, such as oil pressure, engine temperature and battery voltage.
The fuel module tracks and reports fuel consumption and miles per gallon.
Both modules leverage the exception management tools in GreenRoad’s web console, including real-time alerts, an automated to do list, dashboards, clickable drill-downs, trend analytics and configurable reports.
Vehicle health alerts are also highlighted on a simulated dashboard for each vehicle and on the live fleet location map, giving managers complete information about their fleet’s status at a glance.
Transdev, one of the largest public transport operators in Europe, will be deploying the vehicle health function by the end of 2013.
Mike Mullins, technical director at Transdev, said: “Vehicle health will be critical as we better manage our fleet of vehicles to reduce maintenance costs.
“Combined with our use of GreenRoad driver behaviour to cut risk and reduce fuel consumption, the result is improved passenger satisfaction and major savings in operational expenses.”
