Stuttgart – Daimler FleetBoard is the first telematics solutions supplier to offer an app for the Apple iPhone and iPad for fleet management and driving analysis functions. This makes it possible to manage a bus and coach fleet at all times while on the move. The trip recording function also makes it possible to look at the last journey. With this app, a bus or coach fleet operator can have an overview of the deployment of his vehicles, his drivers’ working times, the fuel consumption of his vehicles and his drivers’ driving styles. Even the status of the bus or coach doors and ramps can be displayed. The prerequisite for the use of the FleetBoard app is a vehicle fitted with FleetBoard and a FleetBoard service contract. The new FleetBoard app can be downloaded free-of-charge for a limited period of time from the App Store. The app has been available for trucks and vans for some time now.
Telematics solutions for buses and coaches have been supplied under the name of OMNIplus BusFleet up until now. For several weeks now, the telematics supplier Daimler FleetBoard GmbH has been working on further developing the telematics system specially for buses and coaches (rural, touring and city). Trust is important, but as fleet operators know: transparency is even better, and for a company working on a sound financial footing, essential for managing operations. The FleetBoard fleet management system specifically for buses and coaches helps in this respect. Now fleet operators can benefit from being able to use the FleetBoard app while on the move.
