Tata Motors has become the first OEM to install one lakh advanced telematics systems on its commercial vehicles. The company was the first to adopt this technology and integrate it into its offering in India, under the brand name of Tata Fleetman. The award was bestowed by Matthew Hague, Owner and Executive Director of Microlise in the presence of Sir John Peace, Chairman of ‘The Midlands Engine’, Andy Street, Mayor of West Midlands, William Hopkinson, First Secretary (Investment) and other dignitaries from the UK Delegation. With this, Tata Motors becomes the first OEM in the country to be awarded this honour.
Tata Fleetman goes much beyond the basic location-based services that have now become commonplace. It generates rich fleet insights and goes on to collaborate with the customers to offer specific interventions towards improvement in the utilisation, performance and safety of the fleet. Tata Fleetman is closely integrated with the Tata Motors’ Suraksha –the maintenance contract offerings or AMC.
Tata Motors is the only OEM to establish a proactive maintenance interventions process based on the real-time fault code transmission – this service is available on the Prima range covered under AMC (Annual maintenance contract). With over 1200 workshops, Tata Fleetman is gearing up for next level of fleet telematics with advanced trip/journey management features that cater to the complex requirements of sectors like e-commerce, the company said.
