Telematics Market Overview – Cybit

By [email protected] - 17th August 2006 - 15:08

Telematics is much more than vehicle tracking: it’s the technology enabler for sharing information across the enterprise and integrating with the back office.
Telematics is well-positioned to add value for a broad range of fleet-related businesses including leasing companies, rental organisations and insurance providers, as well as own-account and third-party fleet operators.Telematics has come a long way since the early days of location and tracking. Businesses are looking for additional value from their telematics investment, and that’s something Cybit can provide.The Internet-based Fleetstar-Online fleet and asset management solution is fully modular and enables companies to gain essential information about their fleet, anytime, anywhere.Capturing live information on the speed, direction and location of each vehicle enables companies to measure performance, analyse driving practices and refine fleet operations, as well as address newer issues such as Duty of Care.Return on Investment, Duty of Care and workforce productivity are major issues within the workplace, and Cybit is one of the few providers helping organisations to address all of these. The Fleetstar-Online solution enables organisations to address legislative and employment issues, reduce operating costs and increase productivity.It also improves the level of support service that office-based staff are able to provide, by quickly and accurately locating a customer’s nearest engineer, for example, and increasing visibility across the entire fleet.Compliance is an ever-increasing challenge for organisations, with legislation such as the Working Time Directive already in effect, and the Coprorate Manslaughter Bill on the horizon.Cybit is constantly working to address these issues with solutions such as its new Duty of Care module – the industry’s first telematics-enabled offering that enables fleet operators to conduct and manage their ongoing driver and vehicle risk assessments.To help manage this, Cybit’s OpenAPI-based telematics architecture, its modules and applications can be fully integrated with existing back-office processes, enabling easy integration and fast deployment across an organisation’s entire fleet. Cybit believes it is important to not only provide the solution, but also to back it up with consultancy skills to add value.Cybit helps organisations optimise Fleetstar-Online performance and add value by combining all the technology, business processes and HR components needed to deliver effective telematics solutions, and offers a full portfolio of Cybit Professional Services, Additional Product Capabilities and Value-added Partner solutions.Organisations can take advantage of Cybit’s expertise and strong business integration skills to ensure that their telematics solution is optimised for their business. Cybit consultants work closely with fleets to define telematics strategies, identify optimum performance and help realise business objectives.Cybit sees the need for service optimisation as an on-going issue within the current telematics market. It believes that issues such as Duty of Care compliance and Return on Investment will continue to be a major focus for telematics service providers, as organisations are looking to achieve increased workforce optimisation, identify areas where savings can be made, and ensure full compliance with the latest legislation.
