Fleet Complete, a Markham-based provider of vehicle fleet tracking, dispatching and mobile resource management solutions, and telecom giant Telus have teamed with Intact Insurance, to create an insurance offering called my Fleet Solution, designed to help fleet managers bring overall costs down by optimizing best practices.
“TELUS Fleet Tracker is one of the most comprehensive and widely used fleet tracking solutions in Canada,” said TELUS vice-president of the Internet of Things Shawn Sanderson. “my Fleet Solution takes this offering one step further and encourages any eligible business with a fleet of vehicles to make smarter and safer driving decisions, while helping them reduce operational costs.”
Founded in 1998 as Clear Innovations, the company launched their Fleet Complete product in 2005 and partnered with Telus in 2007. In 2011, they similarly partnered with AT&T to distribute their product in the U.S.
“This is a compelling offer that provides businesses with increased operational efficiencies and potential savings,” said Fleet Complete executive vice-president of business development Jerry Leong. “TELUS Fleet Tracker has been a successful product for years and with the added insurance offering, it is an even more compelling choice for customers looking to better manage their fleets. Fleet Complete is also proud to be one of the first to offer this solution with Canadian insurance leader, Intact Insurance.”
The Fleet Complete platform tracks vehicle locations in real time and provides analytics regarding idling time, speed, vehicle operation, maintenance, fuel consumption and driver safety practices.
“my Fleet Solution offers commercial customers an industry-leading fleet telematics solution,” said Intact Insurance senior vice-president for Commercial Lines Alain Lessard. “my Fleet Solution customers will get valuable insights into their fleet to help them better manage and improve their costs and operations, and provide access to Intact Insurance’s loss prevention services.”
Adding the my Fleet Solution offering in collaboration with Intact Insurance allows fleet managers to integrated those metrics with the insurance company, incentivizing best practices.
Commercial fleet operators who choose my Fleet Solution will qualify for an enrollment discount, as well as additional savings based on fleet performance.
Fleet Complete was already part of Telus’ Internet of Things marketplace, which allows customers to add services such as warehouse monitoring, mobile payments or digital signage to their existing suite of Telus services.
