T-Mobile introduced T-Mobile SyncUP Fleet, an Internet of Things (IoT)-based fleet management solution for businesses. SyncUP Fleet includes connected hardware and a cloud-based platform with management tools for businesses they can access from their smartphone, tablet or desktop. Users plug the SyncUP Fleet device into each vehicle’s standard on-board diagnostics (OBDII) port and create their online account to get started. SyncUP Fleet is developed in partnership with Geotab.
According to T-Mobile, SyncUP Fleet can help businesses:
- Save Time: Fleet managers can quickly get a bird’s eye view of their entire fleet of vehicles and make decisions with reports on traffic delays, customer arrival times, driver time in location and more.
- Cut Costs: Businesses can help cut fuel consumption by analyzing driver routes and idle time, while regular vehicle maintenance notifications can help prevent costly repairs with scheduled reports, emails or alerts.
- Increase Driver Productivity: Customers can track the location of their vehicles to improve driver productivity and improve driving habits with regular risk and safety reports.
