What is Ford Telematics?
Ford Telematics powered by Telogis is a cloud-based fleet management solution that puts you in control of your entire Ford fleet. You can easily check vehicle location, vehicle fuel economy, driver safety, diagnostic data, and more. All displayed in real time and right at your fingertips. The system will also generate custom reports, reward drivers for exhibiting efficient and safe driving habits, animate vehicle history, and many more features too numerous to list. Information is power, and this system gives you loads of it. Plus, it’s all wrapped up in an easy to use interface.

With the help of Telematics, you can maximize your uptime while minimizing downtime, therefore saving money almost instantly. These savings can come from numerous places, including reduced labor costs, increased productivity, lower fuel costs, and more. According to Frost & Sullivan, fleets can reduce their idle time by up to 30% while reducing fuel costs by up to 25%. Drivers were able to cut their mileage while working less overtime and increase their overall productivity.

Imagine knowing that a vehicle needed servicing well before it breaks down, being able to reward drivers for being more productive and for saving fuel, and get your fleet working synergistically.

What Vehicles Are Supported?
Ford Telematics may be installed today on Ford commercial vehicles 2009 or newer, including the F-150 and Super Duty, the Transit and Transit Connect, E-Series vans, and a special version of the software may be implemented on the Police Interceptor Utility and Sedan. Telematics will also be introduced on the New 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750.
