What is telematics?

Telematics uses GPS and integrated telecommunications to give you real-time snapshots of your fleet operations. The system sends, receives and stores information about each vehicle so you can get detailed information about speed, idle times, overall vehicle health, and driver behavior. Learn more about how telematics works and how it provides insights into your fleet.
