Cooperation for modular telematics in mixed fleets

Vehicle diagnostics with OEM quality meets brand-mixed fleet management

Vaduz / Haar / Stuttgart, October 21, 2020 - AREALCONTROL GmbH, which specializes in telematics solutions for end users, and the Liechtenstein-based GlobalmatiX AG, a subsidiary of the listed Softing AG, are cooperating in commercial telematics applications as well as introducing vehicle remote diagnostics in real time for mixed-brand fleet management of all sizes, brands and models.

The goal is to create mixed fleets of fleet operators who wish to use telematics services for their own purposes and for customer services.

The intelligent xTCU telematics box from GlobalmatiX supplies original diagnostic data from the vehicle that can be remotely programmed for various applications. The parameters are expandable up to the "Digital Twin" on data level. Classic vehicle location and tracking can be switched on separately. It is possible to combine the AREALCONTROL Web-Portal with an electronic logbook, digital disposition and complete fleet management in compliance with the German Tax Office and DSGVO. The completely remote configurable solution can be configured according to the application. The solution is suitable both for fleets that do not require tracking data but do require the technical data of the vehicles, as well as for electronic logbooks with GPS tracking to provide operational management and dispatching.

Fleet service providers such as car dealerships, leasing and rental companies can limit the system to technical data in order to digitalize their own services. This includes key data such as fuel consumption, mileage, maintenance and inspection intervals, tank level, battery status, fluid levels and error messages. These sets of data are used to make bookings for maintenance dates, vehicle availability or invoicing according to mileage, excess or short kilometers, which cannot be manipulated. Via an API, the data is directly transferred to further systems in real time. The Globalmatix solution provides diagnostic data for all vehicles in commercial fleets of all brands, models and years of manufacture.

if this is necessary, the operator of commercial fleets can see and record the location data in real time for dispatching purposes. For example, a service company that needs to provide automated proof of the services provided with arrival and departure times or/and the duration of stay, such as compliance with service level agreements (SLA) for its customers.

Arealcontrol's range of solutions extends from automated time and performance records per vehicle, personnel deployment and location, through electronic logbooks for pool fleets, to solution packages consisting of apps, OEM diagnostic data retrieved via CANbus, remote tacho download, transport management systems and with ERP system connections.

With this range of solutions, Arealcontrol addresses a broad target group that wants to implement its own digitization strategies step by step and on demand. Customers come from construction, trade and service companies, larger fleet operators from all industries as well as technical services, transport or logistics companies.

GlobalmatiX and Arealcontrol will showcase these innovations at Hypermotion 2020 in Frankfurt from November 10 to 12.
