Fleet Complete is now an authorized Ford Data Services provider in Canada. Canadian fleet-owners who have Ford vehicles with telematics hardware fitted as standard can now gain more business intelligence features through Fleet Complete’s leading software platform for flexible, convenient and improved fleet management.
(Aug 17, 2020 – Toronto, Canada) – On the heels of the launch in the U.S. in March, Fleet Complete® is quickly expanding its integration with Ford Data Services to Canada. This integration brings a more feature-rich and flexible connected vehicle solution to Canadian fleet-owners through Ford’s standard, factory-fitted telematics hardware. Using OEM (original equipment manufacturer) grade data, this integration will deliver powerful, data-driven vehicle insights and analytics to fleets that need to minimize the total cost of ownership, while maximizing vehicle utilization and uptime.
“We are thrilled to launch an integrated solution with Ford in Canada,” commented Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete. “This is a game-changing trend in the industry today, as there is no more debate about whether fleets should use telematics or not. It has become best practice in fleet management, and this is why meaningful partnerships with OEMs like Ford will make a big difference to our fleet-owning customers in Canada – particularly if they have a mixed fleet. They will be able to manage all of their assets on a single platform and get software activation for their telematics-equipped Ford vehicles over the air to start using our advanced features right away.”
Equipped with standard telematics hardware in all Model Year 2020 and newer Ford vehicles, fleet customers will be able to subscribe and have immediate access to the Fleet Complete platform, without additional hardware and associated costs.
“Ford is committed to bringing transformative solutions to our fleet customers to help them get more out of their vehicles,” said Michelle Moody, Director of Marketing for Ford Commercial Solutions. “We’re excited that Fleet Complete is expanding their integration with Ford Data Services into Canada, offering more Ford fleet owners seamless integration with their telematics services. On Model Year 2020 or newer Ford vehicles, the Fleet Complete telematics platform can provide in-depth insights into fleet performance and driver behaviour to help ensure smooth-running operations and drive business growth.”
With foresight into the future, Fleet Complete has been at the forefront of market trends for OEM integrations. A growing number of businesses today are looking for more customizable and flexible options to be able to expand their existing fleet or try out telematics solutions. This partnership brings the flexibility they need through:
- The ability to manage a mixed fleet on a single interface
- Cost savings with no hardware installation
- OEM-grade data sourced through integrated hardware
- Flexibility with no long-term contract requirement
- Fast over-the-air software activation
