Garmin increasing fleet management focus

Garmin, a global GPS provider, is increasing its focus on its Fleet Management Solutions.

Clive Taylor has been appointed director of fleet management & commercial business for EMEA and APAC specifically to lead longer-term growth and success in the fleet sector. Having been at Garmin for 7 years specialising in the automotive market, his role in fleet solutions has increased significantly over that time.

His new role is to manage the increasing demand for fleet services, to look into fresh new products and ideas, as well as to boost the profile of Garmin’s commercial fleet and solutions business.

“Garmin is the ideal choice for Fleet Managers as we offer such a wide range of flexible solutions via our partners.” says Clive Taylor. “By combining our GPS expertise and ability to offer economies of scale and customisation along with mobile fleet tracking and compatible sensor technology we can offer price-effective and adaptable solutions.”

As well as providing vehicle-specific directions (customisable by vehicle height, weight, load etc) and job scheduling, Garmin’s Fleet Management system offers two-way communications between the control centre and drivers and the ability to fully monitor a mobile workforce. The result is a greater ability to plan ahead, greater efficiencies and greater level of customer service. Most importantly the result is a quicker RoI.

Frank Assman has also been appointed Senior Product Manager for Fleet. He previously worked at Navigon in the mobile navigation sector. He’s been at Garmin for two years but and his new role is to define features and products for the fleet market and co-ordinate technical support across the division.

Clive Taylor continues “The great advantage of Garmin’s Fleet Management Solutions is their ease of use. They are simple to purchase, install, use and maintain. If your aim is to improve your service and reach a quick RoI, you don’t want to waste precious time being overloaded with data. You define your particular goals and build on new services as and when required. Driving efficiency & service is the key to our offering.”

Garmin offers a wide range of useful, versatile and cost-efficient fleet solutions from fully autonomous telematics solutions to truck-specific navigators. Alongside this, sensor technology such as reverse cameras, drive cameras, secure mounts and more ensures Garmin is at the forefront of Fleet Management.
