Fleet Telematics Sector Embracing the Cloud
(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 07 August 2014
Release date- 06082014 - SpireonABI Research forecasts that the number of cloud-based commercial telematics units will reach 16.8 million by the end of 2018, up from 1.1 million in 2012. Cloud-based fleet telematics systems process and deliver data via the cloud, rather than software and hardware installed onsite at the business.
Cloud-based telematics solutions are easy to implement and use, scalable, and enable fleets to focus on their own business rather than spending time and money implementing and maintaining a complex fleet management solution.
Cloud-based telematics does face several challenges as it grows and becomes more widely used. Challenges include data privacy and security issues. Since data is delivered and stored via the cloud it could be intercepted or compromised by a third party, such as a hacker. Therefore, companies must take extra steps to avoid data breaches. Fleet managers should always make sure they choose a telematics solution that has the utmost in safety and security precautions in place.
Cloud-based technology has many benefits for fleets, including:
Easy, instant access to data and business intelligence from any computer or device.
Web-based interfaces that are easy to learn and intuitive to use.
Systems delivered via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), so companies are not burdened by high costs and complexities of purchasing and implementing hardware and software.
Data delivered instantly as actionable business intelligence that fleet managers can use to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and boost customer service.
As the cloud-based telematics industry grows and products become even more finely tuned, fleets will continue to reap the benefits, improve their businesses, and realize quick ROI on these products.
