Contract hire, fleet management and salary sacrifice provider Fleet Hire is launching TelMi, a multi-layered telematics service for its salary sacrifice and fleet customers.
TelMi hardware is being fitted to all new cars supplied by Fleet Hire to salary sacrifice customers through its car salary exchange division as an aid to more efficient scheduling of vehicle servicing.
Following trials with a number of major corporate fleets, it is also being retro-fitted to a number of mixed car and van fleets, with the capability to provide a range of management information including mileage capture, fuel usage monitoring, carbon emissions measurement and fuel economy and risk ranking for drivers.
Solihull-based Fleet Hire has built its TelMi offering on the moDrive platform which was launched last year by Ebbon-Dacs in conjunction with motor accessories supplier, vGroup International.
Earlier this year, Fleet Hire took the decision to switch all its vehicle purchasing to Ebbon-Dacs’ e-procurement platform, Leaselink, and the latest move is seen as strengthening the business partnership between the two companies.
Chris Joyce, chief operating officer at Fleet Hire, said: "It’s our intention to provide a multi-layered service with different levels of reporting and management information for our customers, depending on their requirements.
“Customers can choose from a base level which incorporates mileage capture, fault code recording and service scheduling to more detailed dashboards which provide league tables of the best and worst drivers based on their behaviours and their fuel economy and risk profiles.
“Our salary sacrifice customers will benefit from more efficient service scheduling as we will capture the mileages on their vehicles to ensure that servicing is carried out at the appropriate times, as well as identifying any faults on their vehicles.
“For corporate fleets, there are a number of operational benefits that will help them run their fleets more efficiently. These include features such as mileage and fuel usage capture, carbon emissions reporting, advanced service scheduling and many more."
