Telematics refers to technology-based hardware tools to:

  • Collect;
  • Record; and
  • Transmit vehicle operational data.

The devices plug into the vehicle’s onboard dashboard computer and:

  • Record;
  • Store; and
  • Report data directly from the vehicle to a web-based reporting platform.

This data can be used to help you manage your fleet.

Whether you purchase your vehicles or lease through GSA, we have a telematics solution for your fleet.
