The AA is to launch a telematics offering for fleets and small businesses, powered by Trakm8 systems.
Trakm8 has been the supplier of telematics to the AA for their roadside assistance and recovery vehicles for more than four years, bringing considerable operational and economic benefits to the business over that time.
It has now worked with the AA to develop a new fleet management system. The new product will be offered to the AA's B2B customers, enabling them to help manage both the cost and logistics of running their fleets.
The solution will be aimed at large fleet operators as well as SMEs running fleets of five or more vehicles.
The system allows individual vehicle data to be tracked, including fuel consumption, driver behaviour and routes taken.
John Watkins, executive chairman of Trakm8 said: "This is a substantial contract and an extremely interesting opportunity for Trakm8. Working with the AA on this project we will substantially increase our understanding of remote vehicle service potential for fleets."
Kirsty Lloyd-Jukes, the AA's Strategy Director added: "We have worked with Trakm8 on our own vehicle fleet for some time and they have demonstrated great innovation and support for our business. This initiative for our fleet customers is an important part of the investment in connected car technology that we are developing. We are looking at a number of options that will add value to our proposition for the rest of our business customers and our personal members."
