Trakm8 has launched Connect 200, a new portable telematics device that can be used in grey fleet and rented vehicles.
It was developed to support operators as they adapt to new working routines during the Coronavirus pandemic.
As businesses increasingly turn to short-term solutions to keep their fleets moving, the Connect 200 device can be simply plugged into the 12v socket of any vehicle.
Peter Mansfield, group sales and marketing director at Trakm8, said: “Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen just how crucial and effective fleet operation is for keeping Britain in business. From the delivery of groceries bought online to the transportation of essential PPE items, UK fleets have played a vital role in the fight against Covid-19.
“As the vaccination programme develops, potentially thousands of business drivers could soon be back on the road. That’s why we have introduced the Connect 200 offering, ensuring drivers and fleet managers have all the tools they need to do their jobs as effectively and efficiently as possible.”
Alongside its adaptability, the Connect 200 can also help bolster driver safety by providing real time vehicle tracking via Trakm8’s Insight Portal and iOS/Android apps - which can also provide a driver behaviour score on a number of key metrics, including acceleration, braking, cornering and speeding.
“Recognising the fact that fleets are having to be more reactive than ever before and work in ways far different from the norm, we are committed to getting them set up with the right telematics as quickly as possible. That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer next day delivery on the system, meaning vehicles can be fitted with the solution and out on the road in as little as 24 hours,” added Mansfield.
