Telematics

Telematics is a field of information technology that combines telecommunications and informatics to send, receive, and store data connected with fleet vehicles. The data generated from telematics can assist fleet managers to best manage their fleets. This in turn can provide cost savings areas such as maintenance, driver behavior, reporting, fuel use and idling, as well as inventory optimization.

Telematics empowers the federal government to maximize efficiency within fleet management. Executive Order 13834 Implementation Instructions highlights using telematics in the federal government. Whether you purchase your vehicles or lease through GSA Fleet, there is a telematics solution for you. Select the topics below to learn more about GSA Fleet’s current telematics offerings.
