Vehicle Telematics Solutions

Summary

Central government and wider public sector organisations can use this agreement to lease, hire or buy vehicle telematics hardware and software solutions.

Description

Access telematic products and services to help you improve the efficiency of your fleet operations and optimise your fleet, driver and risk management.

Telematics is a phrase commonly used to describe how information technology and telecommunications are used to track the movement of vehicles and extract data to inform decision making. 

You can install a telematics device (such as hardwired tracking devices, dash-cams, and plug and play devices which typically plug into the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) port) within a vehicle to collect data. The data is then transmitted to a secure data hub which you can view in real time using a web-based portal.

For more information about what services this agreement will provide, read the ‘product types’ section below.

We designed this agreement to allow suppliers the ability to adapt their offerings to meet your requirements. This ensures that they can provide the telematics solution that best meets your needs.

  • analyse vehicle usage to enable evidence-based decision making and policy development
