Tata Motors (Mumbai, India) has launched a new fleet telematics service it claims will help commercial vehicle fleet owners boost their productivity and profitability.
Branded Tata FleetMan, the service will initially be introduced on new tractor-trailers but is set to become available on Tata’s entire medium-sized and heavy commercial vehicle range in the coming months.
Tata says the service will be extended to existing vehicles through aftermarket fitments.
The Indian company says Tata FleetMan was developed to address the most pressing concerns of the transport industry, including fuel management, driver management and remote diagnostics.
It includes features like real-time fleet tracking, SMS alerts, geo-fencing and trip management.
Customers will have to pay Tata an annual subscription charge to receive the service, which Tata will market through its commercial vehicle dealer network.
“Tata Motors has been in the Indian commercial vehicle space for over six decades,” said Ravi Pisharody, executive director of commercial vehicles for Tata Motors, in a statement. “During this period we have developed a very deep understanding of the Indian market, bringing world-class technologies at world-class prices, having always paced ourselves one step ahead in meeting our customers’ needs. Tata FleetMan, completely developed in-house, further affirms our expertise in offering solutions which can transform the dynamics of the transport industry.”
