The use of truck telematics provides fleet operators with several benefits. They can significantly reduce costs, optimise workflows and increase customer satisfaction. idem telematics’ new truck telematics system is changing the market with its manufacturer-independent system that is less complicated, more versatile and cheaper than ever.
The new hardware is expected to be delivered for the first time in April, following idem telematics’ goal of making system-open and manufacturer-independent truck telematics uncomplicated and affordable for all transport company owners.
BPW said its telematics is easier to install and network, supports the 2G and 4G network, offers new functions for speedometer management and is cheaper than previous products. Its comprehensive hardware means interfaces will allow the vehicle and telematics boxes to be connected without intermediate adapters.
idem telematics has also significantly expanded the functional range of its telematics platform cargofleet3. In addition to the classic speedometer download, idem now offers speedometer archiving and violation evaluations. Speedometer data is archived online and can be downloaded at any time, while the system simultaneously monitors the legal driving times and breaks and evaluates regulatory violations.
Using the cargofleet driver app, order and route data, text messages and navigation destinations are transmitted to the driver display and can be answered or edited there. This feature works even when the ignition is switched off, as the unit now has its own battery.
“In a time when everything is becoming more expensive, we offer real added value with our new truck hardware,” said idem telematics Managing Director, Jens Zeller.
“In this way we are creating significant efficiency gains for all transport companies, regardless of the vehicle type or vehicle brand. So we also integrate systems from market competitors.”
According to BPW, telematics systems are offered by most truck manufacturers, but they come with high monthly user fees and lack of acceptance and commitment among transport companies. The limited range of functions is also problematic, as individual adjustments for order management are not possible at all or only with considerable effort.
