Share the power of fleet data.

​Telematics is now a well-established solution to help run a more efficient, safer fleet. At it’s heart, it offers a data-driven approach to the management of vehicles and mobile workforces that can benefit not just fleet managers but also other business units such as the HR and Finance departments.

Isolated telematics systems only go so far. To reap the full benefits across different functions, fleet data can be integrated with other enterprise systems to deliver far greater value to the business as a whole.

Masternaut Connect’s API (application programming interfaces) allows you to exchange real-time and historic data and easily connect fleet data to other platforms within your business, including HR, ERP, and customer service systems.

For instance, integrating with HR systems means you only have to manage one master employee database, which can then be mirrored onto your telematics system. Timesheet and payroll applications can be provided with accurate data feeds on working hours based on vehicle use. Expense and mileage claims can be massively simplified by providing drivers with a quick and simple mechanism to identify private and business journeys via a mobile app. And employee safety initiatives can take a direct feed on driver behaviour.

Of course, connecting your fleet to your operations requires more vigilance about reliability and data security. Masternaut does not transfer any data outside Europe, as we use two managed, fully redundant data centres based in the EU. These meet the highest security standards, are fully enabled for disaster recovery and the data hosted is protected via a wide range of measures, including:

  • State of the art technical/cyber defences, with regular third-party testing
  • Security policies covering all access and activities according to ISO security models
  • Physical access defences and procedures
  • Staff training and awarenes

A data-driven approach to your fleet management can help deliver savings, provide excellent service to your customers, and create a safer working environment for your employees.
