The RAC has launched a new smartphone app to bolster its telematics, which is now available in the Microsoft App Store following its launch for iPhone in April.
The app, which is free to download and available now from the Microsoft App Store, will provide RAC Telematics customers with information about what is happening with their vehicles, including detailed journey history that can be used for business expenses or vehicle cost management.
The app will give the individual driver a similar level of information that a fleet manager would see in their vehicle portals. By synching with the RAC Telematics unit fitted in the vehicle, the new app will provide the user with a personal driver score, vehicle health information, driver location and journey information and vehicle updates to alert the driver when it's time for a service or MOT
Nick Walker, RAC Telematics managing director, said: “Telematics is proving to be a vital tool for businesses as functions such as driver scores encourages better and more efficient driving.
“This can lead to better MPG in vehicles helping to bring down fuel costs by around 10 per cent according to our customers, and driving at slower speeds helps to cut accidents and reduce wear and tear on their vehicles.”
