Choosing Telematics: How Much Is Too Much?

4/15/2021 -

Because they can provide so much and do so much, it’s tempting to see telematics as a cure-all. “Most fleet managers think deploying telematics will solve all their problems,” says Roman Ferster, CEO of RGRAUTO Inc. “I know many managers for whom instead of making life easier, telematics makes their life much harder.

As fleet operators continue to feel the pandemic’s sting into 2021, pressure is on to maximize resources and minimize costs. And if you haven’t yet considered the impact of engine idling on your fleet, you might be leaving hundreds of thousands — if not, millions — of dollars on the proverbial table.
