To all [company/organization name] employees:

Using real-time data and insights, telematics allows us to provide better customer service, increase fuel efficiency, improve driver safety, and lower CO2 emissions. We’ve chosen MICHELIN Connected Fleet and their market-leading platform ‘MyConnectedFleet’ as our fleet telematics system.

My Connected Fleet will help our business to:

  • Reduce customer waiting times, as vehicles are routed more efficiently
  • Provide customers accurate arrival times
  • Provide an audit trail for our customers to verify deliveries and/or time spent on site
  • Identify the nearest vehicle to a job without hassling all drivers in an area
  • Easily send the closest colleague to you should you need assistance
  • Identify opportunities to improve employee welfare and safety through training
  • Increase fuel efficiency through improved routing
  • Lower CO2 emissions through reduced fuel usage
  • Manage a more sustainable fleet.

How does telematics work?

Each vehicle will be fitted with telematics equipment that collects information like [choose information from the list] MPG, speed, and GPS location. MyConnectedFleet then processes that information in real time and provides insights that enable our team to run a smarter business.
