ARI, a part of the Holman Automotive Group, recently announced the implementation of its enhanced telematics solution, which now offers three levels of support designed to increase the knowledge and insight fleet managers can gain from their telematics solutions. According to the company, the approach provides a consolidated view of all fleet-related data and helps to identify the best telematics solutions regardless of vendor.

 The new levels include:

* Telematics Data Capture: This Web-based system is designed to integrate data from all of the various telematics devices employed across a fleet, combine it with vehicle and driver data already in the system, and provide specialized alerts and reporting tailored to a company’s 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 Solution: An all-in-one package that includes telematics data capture, data integration into the ARI insights system for specialized alerts and reporting, consolidated contracts and billing, access to the Technology Advisory Team and first-level support and installation of telematics devices.

“Telematics technology has the power to capture thousands of data points from a single vehicle, on any given day,” said Tony Candeloro, director, client information systems at ARI.  “But without a means to aggregate or interpret the data, it becomes siloed [sic] and can fall inactive…we provide our clients with the solutions that fit their needs, to help them realize the true benefit of these powerful tools.  Ultimately, with ARI’s telematics solution, fleet managers have optics into managing the vehicle, the driver and the trip.”
