This week at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014, Ford Motor Co. and Telogis highlighted its Ford Telematics powered by Telogis. The partnership provides actionable information from Ford commercial vehicles that helps customers reduce fuel costs up to 20%, reduce their environmental impact and increase driver safety, the two companies explained, announcing the extension of the platform into the Europe Market.
“The launch of Ford Telematics powered by Telogis in Europe is an extension of what has become the industry-standard in OEM telematics in North America,” said Greg Dziewit, vice president, OEM business at Telogis. “Making this offering available to Ford’s European customers will help them run more efficient, cost-effective and safer fleets and transform the way they do business.”
Based on the real-time data, the Ford Telematics powered by Telogis software platform delivers a range of actionable business information that enables fleet managers to operate their vehicles in the most efficient way and to help ensure drivers are following safe and economical driving practices.
“Telogis is our trusted partner, and the success we’ve had with Ford customers in North America made them the only choice for Ford’s European platform offering,” said Bill Frykman, manager, business and product development at Ford Motor Co.
Since 2011, Telogis has been the exclusive technology provider to power Ford Crew Chief in North America, a comprehensive and scalable telematics solution for commercial customers.
