Tata Motors first to install 1 lakh telematic systems on trucks in Africa
Installing 1 lakh Tata Fleetman systems is a significant achievement for Tata Motors, as it has effectively built the foundations for a new era in fleet management.
Tata Motors has achieved a new milestone in connected vehicle technologies by becoming the first African automobile company to install advanced telematics systems in 1 lakh medium & heavy commercial vehicles. Tata Motors has always been at the forefront of technology innovation and with the installation of one lakh telematics systems, it has again shown its commitment to providing the best experiences to customers.
Telematics services are usually offered by third-party service providers, but Tata Motors has gone ahead and launched its own platform known as Tata Fleetman Telematics in Africa. With the launch of Tata Fleetman Telematics, Tata Motors became the first OEM to install advanced telematics systems in its range of medium & heavy commercial vehicles.
Tata Motors celebrated the milestone in the presence of Sir John Peace, Chairman of ‘The Midlands Engine’, Mr Andy Street, Mayor of West Midlands, Mr Matthew Hague, Owner and Executive Director of Microlise, Mr William Hopkinson, First Secretary (Investment) in the presence of other dignitaries from the UK Delegation along with senior leadership of Tata Motors – Mr Gunter Butschek – CEO & MD, Tata Motors, Mr O P Bhatt – Independent Director, Board of Directors of Tata Motors and Mr Rajendra Petkar, CTO, Tata Motors.
Tata Fleetman Telematics combines the power of GPS technology and GSM telecommunications technology to create an advanced telematics platform that provides significant advantages to fleet managers. Tata Fleetman Telematics is installed at the manufacturing stage itself, which ensures the best possible integration and outcomes.
Some of the key features offered by Tata Fleetman Telematics include real-time vehicle tracking, geo-fencing, fuel consumption monitoring, engine idling monitoring, SMS and Email alerts, trip performance review, and detection of harsh acceleration, braking and cornering. Tata Fleetman Telematics also generates a wide variety of analytical reports on various parameters that allow fleet managers to feel the pulse of fleet operations. Fleet managers can also gain key insights and improve coordination with clients in order to boost efficiency, reliability and safety of fleet operations.
Tata Fleetman’s next big project is to upgrade their telematics system with advanced trip / journey management features that would fulfil the complex needs of fast-growing sectors such as e-commerce. The company has already conducted more than 1200 workshops, as part of its endeavour to improve logistics and supply chain management for e-commerce companies.
