FCA selects Targa Telematics for fleet management services

Targa Telematics launches Targa Lite

Targa Telematics and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have signed a multi-year agreement for fleet management solutions for business customers.

The deal will cover all FCA connected models in the EMEA area.

Since 2018, Targa Telematics has been providing FCA with technological solutions for fleet monitoring for both the B2C and B2B markets, with the Mopar Connect and Mopar Connect Fleet projects.

It provides a digital platform to enable fleet managers and FCA car owners to monitor vehicle usage status in real time, receive alerts for possible theft or tampering and improve vehicle management, as well as the driving experience and driver safety.

With this new agreement, My Fleet Manager Portal has been launched, which includes the capability to check the level and status of electric vehicle (EV) charging; start the charging session remotely; plan charging slots having an overview of the entire fleet; and set the departure time of vehicles and ensure that drivers find them at a comfortable temperature (pre-conditioning).

“This initiative is of strategic importance for FCA within the context of the new ecosystem for connected vehicles,” said Francesco Abbruzzesi, head of Mopar EMEA.

“Via the My Fleet Manager solution developed with Targa Telematics, with which we have a long-standing collaboration relationship, we will offer a suite of functionalities, allowing the real-time monitoring of corporate fleets and the reduction of the related management TCO.

“In support of this, we will include a free trial period of the solution at the launch of the new electric Ducato, so that customers can become familiar with the tool and appreciate its benefits.”

The Italian telematics firm recently appointed Roberto Moneda, as it’s new corporate fleet Europe sales director.

In his new role, Moneda will be providing solutions in telematics, smart mobility and digital IoT (internet of things) to enable companies, organisations and communities to embrace connectivity.
