Masternaut has launched a plug-and-play telematics solution that offers low-cost, hassle-free, pay-as-you-go service.
The Pulse device has been designed for companies that want to implement simple telematics.
It can also serve organisations already using telematics that wish to connect all their vehicles, including short-term hires, company cars and grey fleet.
The Pulse device plugs directly into the vehicle cigarette lighter. Since there is no hardwiring required, vehicles don’t need to be kept off the road for installation, avoiding downtime.
It offers GPS tracking, mileage expense reports and reports on speeding, journeys and utilisation.
Fleets can manage both their permanent fleet and short-term vehicles in one place, on Masternaut’s Connect platform.
Pulse has an introductory price of £4.99 per vehicle per month (plus £25 setup fee), without commitment.
Luke Abrams, VP product development at Masternaut, said: “We knew there was a gap in the telematics technology available when it came to monitoring temporary vehicles, or grey fleet and company cars. Pulse allows them to have more visibility of their unseen fleet.
“Technology is constantly moving on and we’re proud to bring to the market the next evolution in telematics. A solution which is nimble and flexible, while meeting an important customer need.”
