As an owner or manager of a vehicle fleet can be a stressful event if the proper analytics are not available to you. Utilizing data that displays how your vehicles are being driven and information on their performance or potential issues can not only give you a piece of mind but an improvement in efficiency and safety. Ram Commercial has introduced a new Telematics solution for business customers, so they can obtain this information.
The system is powered by Verizon Connect that provides cellular connectivity back to the informational hub. This allows for faster and more accurate data being pushed to your screen. Information provided to you includes vehicle data, diagnostics, and includes driver behavior. This can help reduce your liability chances by flagging dangerous drivers in your fleet faster than without such data. The best thing about this system is that it is scalable from a small business to a large fleet.
If used correctly, this system will provide good returns on investments that increase employee productivity, vehicle utilization, reduced fuel expense, lower idle times, and reduces employee overtime. Starting at $800 per vehicle for an entire year, it is easy to see how one could easily provide an excellent ROI before the end of the first year.
The system itself is covered under a three-year/36,000 mile limited warranty. These systems can be serviced at Ram dealerships nationwide. The cost can also be covered under the vehicle finance when purchasing a new Ram Commercial vehicle. This allows you to spread the initial investment over multiple years. Since they are factory installed, the device will be available for use the second your roll it off the lot.
