ARI Announces Agreement with General Motors Fleet Connected Services to Integrate Information from Embedded Telematics Hardware

Seamless telematics solution delivers enhanced visibility for fleets through the ARI insights platform

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Oct. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, today announced it is teaming with General Motors (GM) Fleet Connected Services to integrate information provided by the embedded telematics hardware into ARI insights®, the company's proprietary fleet management portal, to deliver real-time visibility into the operating conditions of fleet vehicles. The agreement with GM Fleet Connected Services offers a seamless telematics solution that provides the transparency necessary to better control operating costs and help improve productivity.

"Telematics delivers the insight necessary to drive meaningful business improvements but there are often significant roadblocks that must be addressed to unlock the full potential of this powerful technology," said Don Woods, director, customer information systems, ARI. "Our agreement with GM Fleet Connected Services eliminates two of the biggest challenges companies typically face when introducing a telematics program, device installation and data management, helping our customers easily implement a strategy that makes their fleet data impactful."

General Motors' factory-installed telematics device is standard equipment for most Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, eliminating the need for third-party hardware and the required installation costs and downtime. Vital information such as driver behavior and vehicle location flows seamlessly from the vehicle's telematics system into ARI's data warehouse where it is integrated with the customer's entire range of fleet data and available for comprehensive analysis via ARI insights.

"Our developer program provides an excellent platform for ARI to do more for their customers compared to a standard on-board diagnostic plug in. For example, ARI can now offer remote door unlock instantly as opposed to waiting hours for a locksmith," said Brian Hoglund, director of commercial solutions, GM. "At GM, innovation is in our DNA and it's advancing us toward our vision to create a world with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion."

Customers will also receive the benefit of OEM-direct data, providing access to a greater range of information with precision accuracy. In addition to traditional telematics metrics such as fuel consumption and maintenance compliance, fleet operators will have enhanced visibility into vehicle diagnostics, idle times, downtime, and more.

"The real-time optics telematics delivers can transform a business' performance. Whether it's observing driver behavior in an effort to improve safety, helping to ensure regulatory compliance, or monitoring downtime to maximize efficiency, telematics will benefit most companies across virtually all areas of operations," continued Woods. "Many of our customers are already using this powerful tool to gain a deeper, more meaningful insight into their business which in turn fuels smarter, data-driven decisions and ultimately helps fleet generate revenue for their organization."
