Today's telematics and GPS tracking technology is one of a fleet manager's most powerful tools in gathering measurable, actionable data about their fleet. By monitoring trip data, vehicle systems information, and driver behavior, you identify key areas of improvement to drive cost savings and improve safety. Merchants Fleet telematics are easily scaled and customized to suit specific business and industry needs, so fleets of varying sizes and configurations can all benefit from this accurate, high-performance technology.
