The vehicle hire provider Reflex has partnered with global telematics technology company Teletrac Navman to use technology it expects will transform its fleet operations.
Reflex Vehicle Hire supplies an extensive selection of commercial vehicles to businesses across the UK.
Following a successful trial period, the nationwide business is to equip its entire strong fleet of vehicles with Teletrac Navman’s TN360 software – an Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered telematics platform that delivers real-time data to unlock greater compliance, efficiency, and productivity benefits for fleet operations. The new system allows Reflex Vehicle Hire to capture vital data and real-time insights across their fleet and in turn positively impact driver behaviour. With the system linking to the ECU (electronic control unit) of the vehicle to provide accurate mileage, fault codes and speed, this will benefit the customer by identifying issues and resolving them efficiently.
The company says this integration is especially important on Reflex’s Road to Zero strategy. The data provided by the system forms a huge part of the fleet analysis to deliver the recently launched service EV:IE, showcasing the switch from ICE vehicle to EV’s.
The package includes Teletrac Navman’s dashboard camera solution which enables the integration of cameras with tracking software to allow Reflex to combine consistent and accurate driver behaviour data with video footage in a single platform, without using multiple systems.
André Pardal, Head of IT at Reflex Vehicle Hire, commented: “Working with Teletrac Navman has been a fantastic experience since the partnership started. As a trusted and reliable partner, numerous customers have been thrilled to hear we are working with such a renowned industry leader, and it has been great to see the benefits that the telematics platform has already had on our operations.
“We are already seeing a positive impact in driver behaviour, alongside vehicle maintenance checks helping with cost efficiencies in the face of the current supply chain challenges. The entire Reflex team are excited to see how our partnership can continue to thrive and how we can future proof our fleet.”
Peter Millichap, Marketing Director at Teletrac Navman, added: “We are excited to be partnering with Reflex Vehicle Hire and are proud to work with them as a distributor, enabling their customers to receive bespoke telematics-powered packages which can support with road safety, driver behaviour and operational efficiencies. It’s an exciting time for the business as they further digitise their operations to meet the highest driver and vehicle standards, and we’ll do everything we can to support them on the journey.”
