A new integrated telematics package has been launched by telematics firm Geotab and Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services.
It is available to order for Mercedes-Benz cars and vans across 20 European countries, including the UK.
The combined product allows fleets to use Geotab's telematics platform without needing additional hardware or aftermarket installations.
It seamlessly transmits key data points, including OEM-specific warnings, to the MyGeotab platform.
Available tools include activity reports, trip history, GPS tracking, fuel consumption, and engine system information.
Geotab Europe senior vice president Edward Kulperger said: "Like Geotab, Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services understands not only how important data is for successful fleet management, but the importance of being able to seamlessly integrate and analyse this valuable data so that organisations have access to truly actionable insights - to help support sustainability, safety and productivity improvements.
"We are proud to be the first global telematics partner of Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services and know that by integrating our core competencies with Mercedes-Benz connected vehicles, businesses large and small will greatly benefit by being able make better-informed, data-driven decisions to better run their fleet operations all within one common platform."
