Starting this month, all 2020 model year Ford Motor Co. vehicles equipped with telematics-ready hardware will have access to the Toronto-based Fleet Complete platform, without additional hardware and associated costs.
The turn-key solution allows fleet owning customers to streamline their purchasing experience by eliminating the need for additional hardware installation, and once on the road collect accurate vehicle data and identify cost reduction opportunities, increase safety, and improve operations.
“Ford is committed to bringing transformative solutions to our fleet customers to help them get more out of their vehicles,” says Michelle Moody, director of marketing for Ford Commercial Solutions. “We’re pleased to welcome Fleet Complete as an authorized Ford Data Services provider, offering Ford fleet owners seamless integration with their telematics services. On model year 2020 Ford vehicles, Fleet Complete telematics platform provides in-depth insights into fleet performance and driver behavior to help ensure smooth-running operations and drive business growth.”
Ford Data Services says it delivers seamless connectivity between Ford’s built-in, highly secure hardware and Fleet Complete’s telematics software. When choosing a Ford vehicle with telematics-ready hardware, fleet owners can have their vehicles quickly set up in the Fleet Complete platform.
“We are very excited to collaborate with Ford and empower any fleet-running business, big or small, with a turn-key solution that will give them access to a wide variety of information about their mobile resources on the road and in the field,” says Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete. “This includes vehicle productivity and health, location data and route optimization, fuel economy, and maintenance. These key fleet metrics are vital for businesses to establish better safety programs, see greater cost reduction, and improve their customer service for more business opportunities.”
