Teletrac helps Gentoo’s vans reach their customers faster, safer and more efficiently with Fleet Director’s on-board diagnostics pre-installed in their Citroën vehicles.
Garden Grove, California (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Teletrac is pleased to announce its partnership with Gentoo Group, an innovative housing development company based in the United Kingdom. The company has made waves by introducing Citroën vans to its fleet which are all equipped with Teletrac’s award-winning GPS software platform, Fleet Director.
“Teletrac helps Gentoo’s vans reach their customers faster, safer and more efficiently with Fleet Director’s on-board diagnostics pre-installed in their Citroën vehicles,” said Sarah Jackson, Automotive & National Account Manager, Teletrac.
The Gentoo Group recently awarded a contract to Kier Services to lease 337 light commercial vehicles through Citroën with Fleet Director’s on-board diagnostics platform installed in each new vehicle.
The telematics-based automotive partnership from Teletrac is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom, providing companies the ability to purchase fleet vans with comprehensive GPS, safety and diagnostics data.
No other automotive partnership currently allows users to purchase fleet vans pre-fitted with a telematics black box of this kind. This capability allows customers to have constant access to crucial vehicle analytics such as engine status data, idle time, driver safety behavior and fuel statistics.
“When considering the various telematics offerings for our fleet, The Gentoo Group really liked the idea of pre-installed hardware. Representatives across the Group from HR, Transport and Procurement immediately recognized the benefit of this along with capturing true MPG and driver behavior. We are delighted to have Teletrac on board with the Group,” said Colin Watson Principal Procurement Officer, Gentoo.
