Chevin Fleet Solutions extended its flagship fleet, asset, and maintenance management software solution to include a fully integrated telematics offering.

Chevin’s newest technological feature - FleetWave Connect allows existing FleetWave clients to quickly and easily deploy telematics within their fleet to realize essential performance, geolocation, and utilization information directly from within FleetWave.

According to North American Senior Vice President Ron Katz, this capability provides a cost-effective way for fleets to view critical visibility and “actionable” performance data within Chevin’s fleet management software.

This new capability collects telematics delivered data about an asset’s performance and usage from a secure and easily installed device plugged directly into the OBD-II or JBUS. This data is then automatically sent to the cloud, processed, and made visible through FleetWave.

“This capability enables quick and straightforward creation of reports and auto generated notifications for out of compliance situations while allowing management to make quick and appropriate decisions,” Katz said.

Using FleetWave’s native reporting capabilities, fleets can create driver scorecards and KPIs, generate automated e-mail notifications, or permit “where is the vehicle now” capabilities using embedded Google maps to pinpoint the location of assets.

For fleets that need comprehensive telematics capabilities, FleetWave Connect’s optional tools include full mapping, tracking, in-cab navigation, messaging, route planning, as well as available diagnostic trouble code events and more.

FleetWave is also fully integrated with key control technology - providing dynamic pool reservations with secure key control through the software, and FleetWave Mobile, a native app for smartphones and tablets, which supports offline capture, collection, and secure transfer of field-based data.
