Scroll

The word ‘telematics’ combines ‘tele’ – derived from the Greek for ‘far off’, or ‘at a distance’ – and ‘informatics’, a discipline incorporating the practice of information processing. Telematics is the technology used to monitor a wide range of information relating to an individual vehicle or an entire fleet.

In recent years, telematics has changed the face of a number of industries, with it driving major transformation in transport, construction and site excavation. Firms managing fleets of vehicles across a huge range of sectors have come to adopt telematics, which has helped to improve reliability, boost customer service standards, increase efficiency and enhance the bottom line.
