Samsara launches integrated fleet management solution for Ford vehicles

Today, Samsara, the leader in industrial IoT, announced a new integration with Ford Commercial Solutions as part of a continued effort to unlock the power of embedded telematics data for fleet customers. With this new launch comes a turnkey integration between Samsara and Ford Data Services to bring data from Ford’s factory-installed telematics devices into the Samsara fleet management platform.

Without installing additional hardware on eligible Ford commercial vehicles with factory installed connectivity devices, customers can now bring Ford-specific data—such as GPS location, diagnostics, and fuel usage—into Samsara’s unified platform. This platform includes AI dash cams, Vehicle Gateways, Asset Gateways, and more. This manufacturer-grade data can also be leveraged across other business-critical systems, like payroll and supply chain, using Samsara’s open API.

“We are committed to ensuring customers have the power of choice, to get manufacturer-grade vehicle information from the telematics provider of their choice,” said Michelle Moody, Director Ford Commercial Solutions.

“Fleets are increasingly looking to use data collected directly from embedded telematics devices, but if this data isn’t seamlessly integrated into other existing systems it can become more of a headache than a benefit,” said Chris Mozzocchi, Director of OEM Integrations at Samsara, “Now, Ford vehicle fleets can collect actionable data from their embedded devices and analyze it alongside the rest of their Samsara data. At the end of the day, this will help fleets run more efficiently, so they can save time and money.”
