Assured Telematics and Irdeto recently announce a new partnership in which commercial fleet customers can now integrate Irdeto Keystone, a permission-based digital key solution, within their fleet. This solution integrates with all Fleet Management Systems and combines more than 50 years of Irdeto’s security knowledge and telematics data into a solution to help owners manage usage and access to their fleet. It can be installed seamlessly in less than half an hour and it was built to be vehicle brand/model/year agnostic, which means it works for everyone.
With wireless proximity technology, Keystone detects when authorized drivers are approaching the vehicle, allowing vehicle preconditioning even before the driver reaches it. By adding an access management solution to their fleets, contractors can now control who has access to their vehicles, when the clients are allowed to operate them and how they can leverage certain features.
With Keystone, Fleet Managers can easily issue new keys and revoke old ones. The solution eliminates the physical key dispatch office and the need for drivers to carry their physical identification key. As a mobile-first solution, the contractor can manage the entire equipment management process from afar, from the moment equipment leaves their lot, to when it gets returned.
Keystone uses Bluetooth BLE to issue commands, such as open door and authorize engine start, in
addition to setting vehicle preferences. This means it doesn’t require a network connection. It can
operate without any connectivity in remote locations or places with unreliable mobile signals.
