Optifleet, the fleet management software developed by Renault Trucks, is now available in a mobile version. As a result operators, wherever they are, now have real time access to fleet information through the Optifleet app, which can be used remotely on mobile ‘phones or tablets. This will enable hauliers to track their fleets anywhere, anytime and respond quickly to any unexpected incidents.
The simplified interface of the Optifleet application enables fleet managers to access their vehicles in a click and seamlessly allocate new job, through ‘My fleet now’ or track and assess individual driving behaviour and use of trucks by its drivers through ‘Ecoscore’. There are in fact three modules to help transporters optimise driver behaviour, manage fleets efficiently and control operating costs:
The CHECK module provides technical vehicle information that is especially useful in reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This includes the ‘Ecoscore’ feature, which tracks and analyses driving styles and identifies areas in which action can be taken to reduce fuel consumption.
The MAP module geo-locates vehicles in real time, analysing routes taken in order to optimise time and miles driven.
The DRIVE module provides information on driving times and enables operators to remotely access data from driver cards and tachograph memories.
With this new Optifleet mobile application, Renault Trucks is further developing its solutions to provide support for transporters committed to tracking and lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Thanks to real-time fleet management, operators can respond more quickly and increase profitability, whilst improving their own customers’ satisfaction.
Commenting on the launch of the Optifleet app in the UK, Tony Owen, Transport Solutions Manager, Renault Trucks says: “The Optifleet app provides instant access to key data, helping customers control their day-to-day operations and reduce fleet operating costs anytime, anywhere. Operators can stay connected to their fleet, check status and track performance of vehicles and drivers’ Ecoscore, manage unforeseen events more swiftly and assign tasks for improved efficiency and customer service.”
