Webfleet Solutions is able to link directly to the factory-fitted data connection in BMW and Mini vehicles via its OEM.Connect programme.
It means in-depth telematics data to be shared between he vehicle and Webfleet Soloutions’ fleet management solution Webfleet, without the need for aftermarket equipment to be installed.
“With the recent extension of our OEM.Connect solution, customers can benefit from actionable, data-driven insights easily and quickly when using BMW and Mini CarData,” said Taco van der Leij (pictured), vice president, Webfleet Solutions Europe.
“Vehicles with line fitted connectivity will roll off the production line Webfleet ready. With data security and privacy our highest priority, the integrated solution will help fleet managers boost the efficiency, productivity and safety of their fleet operations.”
The integrated telematics solution makes it faster, easier and cheaper for fleet managers to benefit from rich OEM data. All that is needed to connect the vehicles is the vehicle identification number (VIN).
BMW and Mini customers can access the standard Webfleet applications, such as fleet performance reporting, trip data, GPS tracking, and fuel consumption helping them to make informed, data-based decisions while assuring data security.
The service is also offered on PSA Group and Renault vehicles.
Instant notifications around vehicle diagnostics, such as tyre pressure warnings, enable the monitoring of a fleet’s health status in real time, helping fleet managers to keep their drivers safe and minimise vehicle downtime.
All vehicle data is displayed within the Webfleet interface and can be accessed from anywhere via the Webfleet mobile app. OEM.Connect also allows fleet managers with vehicles from different manufacturers to view all of them in a standardised way on a single platform, making comparison and analysis simple.
“We will continue to collaborate with car manufacturers in the field of telematics to offer the best, most innovative and convenient solutions to our customers,” Van der Leij added.
