Renault Trucks’ has launched its fleet management software Optifleet as an app, enabling remote fleet mangement.
The launch will see operators having remote real time access to fleet information through the Optifleet app, enabling hauliers to track their fleets and respond to incidents.
There are in fact three modules to help transporters optimise driver behaviour, manage fleets efficiently and control operating costs:
- The ‘Check’ module provides technical vehicle information that is especially useful in reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This includes the ‘Ecoscore’ feature, which tracks and analyses driving styles and identifies areas in which action can be taken to reduce fuel consumption.
- The ‘Map’ module geo-locates vehicles in real time, analysing routes taken in order to optimise time and miles driven.
- The ‘Drive’ module provides information on driving times and enables operators to remotely access data from driver cards and tachograph memories.
Renault Trucks’ transport solutions manager Tony Owen said: “The Optifleet app provides instant access to key data, helping customers control their day-to-day operation s and reduce fleet operating costs anytime, anywhere.
“Operators can stay connected to their fleet, check status and track performance of vehicles and drivers’ Ecoscore, manage unforeseen events more swiftly and assign tasks for improved efficiency and customer service.”
The free Optifleet application is now available for download but use of the application is subject to subscription to the Optifleet service.
