Webfleet Solutions gains data link with Mercedes-Benz vehicles

2020 Mercedes E-Class

Webfleet Solutions has established a data connection with Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services as part of its OEM.connect partner programme.

It means that Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and vans with in-built connectivity are ready to connect with Webfleet Solutions’ service platform Webfleet, eliminating the need for after-market hardware installations.

With the OEM data feed, Webfleet provides clear, actionable insights supporting fleet managers to maximise fleet performance, reduce operating costs and encourage green and safe driving, while assuring data security.

“We are happy to partner with Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services to further expand our OEM.connect programme and offer an integrated telematics solution to our joint customers,” said Taco van der Leij, vice president of Webfleet Solutions Europe.

“With OEM.connect we are unlocking the end-user value of vehicle connectivity to simplify fleet management and reduce costs, with a secure and affordable solution. The cooperation underlines once more the importance of telematics data and their analysis for fleets and how pooling expertise can accelerate the application of this technology.”

With OEM.connect, passenger car and van customers can access the standard Webfleet applications, including fleet performance reporting, trip data, GPS tracking and fuel consumption.

Instant notifications around vehicle diagnostics, such as tyre pressure warnings, mean the fleet’s health status can be monitored in real time, enabling fleet managers to keep their drivers safe and minimise vehicle downtime.

Webfleet recently announced a data link with BMW and Mini vehicles.
