Managing a company’s fleet of vehicles in addition to focusing on the core business can get complicated. Tracking varying degrees of usage, schedules and potentially managing different parts and service providers at multiple locations makes optimizing uptime even more difficult. Failure to control these factors often leads to spending money instead of making money.
The challenge of protecting your fleet’s uptime can help be resolved through an effective Telematics system with diagnostics capabilities. Telematics with diagnostics integrates by plugging directly into the vehicles OBD-II port. WEX telematics identifies and sends you fault codes to determine the health of your vehicles and optimize uptime. Once you receive the data, fleet managers and business owners can easily generate comprehensive, diagnostics reports, including simple, intuitive data-filled dashboards with graphs and charts that allow managers to improve overall efficiency and performance, while making note of potential risks.
