Our telematics team works primarily with business fleets and commercial operators, from small enterprises to multi-national companies operating fleets of 5,000-plus vehicles, helping them to maximise fleet efficiencies and cost-savings. We have also installed more than 20,000 units on behalf of our insurer partners allowing their customers to benefit from lower premiums as a result.

We have fitted a further 10,000 units for RAC Black Box insurance customers who are new and young drivers looking to reduce their insurance costs.

Most exciting of all is the ability our telematics device gives us to access vehicle management systems remotely. This, combined with our expertise in vehicle fault analysis, enables us to diagnose faults remotely and predict future problems potentially preventing costly faults occurring.
