Ford is a leader in the fleet vehicle market* and has sold the most popular commercial vehicle for over three decades. Ford Commercial Solutions is introducing two new products designed to help fleets easily access useful data about their vehicles.
Both new products will utilize the Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC), an open platform that securely manages information flow to and from Ford vehicles’ embedded modems.
The two new products from Ford Commercial Solutions are the Data Services system for use on all Ford fleet vehicles and a new fleet information tool designed to support law enforcement vehicles.
The new Data Services product used the built-in modem in Ford vehicles to transfer data to the cloud then relays it to the fleet’s internal IT system or telematics service provider. The data will provide information such as GPS location, mileage, fuel use data, vehicle health alerts and driver behavior.
The law enforcement fleet information tool uses information collected through the Data Services product to provide police fleets with insights that can help improve fleet efficiency and driver behavior. The application can also collect insights on fuel usage, carbon dioxide emissions and vehicle health.
“Business owners and operators want to serve their customers, not spend excessive time managing their fleets,” said Lee Jelenic, CEO, Ford Commercial Solutions. “Our goal is to unlock the data from their vehicles to provide them with more effective ways to manage their fleets and improve operations.
“Our new products are tailored to serve fleets of all types, whether they’re run by law enforcement, composed predominantly of Ford vehicles, or are large multi-make fleets that want more insight from their Ford vehicles.”
