ARI announced a new telematics solution offering three levels of support to increase knowledge and insight for fleet managers.

ARI's telematics approach offers three levels of service:

Telematics Data Capture - The Web-based ARI insights system can integrate data from all of the various telematics devices clients employ across their fleet, combine it with vehicle and driver data already in the system and provide clients with specialized alerts and reporting tailored to their specific needs.

Telematics Consulting Services - ARI's Technology Advisory Team continually monitors trends in the telematics industry, investigates potential vendors and recommends solutions based on a client's specific business needs.

Telematics Managed Solutions - This all-in-one package includes the benefits of telematics data capture above, data integration into the ARI insights system for specialized alerts and reporting, consolidated contracts and billing, the expertise of the Technology Advisory Team and first-level support and installation of telematics devices.

ARI has been integrating telematics data for clients for several years, and these enhancements will help managers further identify cost-reduction opportunities, mitigate risk factors, optimize vehicle usage, reduce vehicle downtime and automate existing manual fleet programs, the company says.

"Telematics technology has the power to capture thousands of data points from a single vehicle, on any given day," says Tony Candeloro, director, Client Information Systems. "But without a means to aggregate or interpret the data, it becomes siloed and can fall inactive."
