Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis helps Ford’s Euro­pean com­mer­cial cus­tomers run a safer, green­er, more effi­cient mobile enter­prise

Ford Motor Com­pany and Tel­o­gis are launch­ing Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis, pro­vid­ing action­able infor­ma­tion from Ford com­mer­cial vehi­cles that helps cus­tomers reduce fuel costs up to 20 per­cent*, reduce their envi­ron­men­tal impact and increase dri­ver safe­ty.

Since 2011, Tel­o­gis has been the exclu­sive tech­nol­o­gy provider to pow­er Ford Crew Chief in North Amer­i­ca, the industry’s most com­pre­hen­sive and scal­able telem­at­ics solu­tion for com­mer­cial cus­tomers. The Euro­pean expan­sion of the Tel­o­gis-Ford part­ner­ship lever­ages the suc­cess of Crew Chief and will meet the demand from cur­rent and new Ford cus­tomers for vis­i­bil­i­ty into day-to-day oper­a­tions includ­ing vehicle/driver loca­tion, vehi­cle and dri­ver per­for­mance and exclu­sive Ford vehi­cle diag­nos­tics.

“Ford of Europe is deliv­er­ing on cus­tomer demand for vis­i­bil­i­ty, cost sav­ings and safe­ty with Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis,” said Bill Fryk­man, man­ag­er, busi­ness and prod­uct devel­op­ment at Ford Motor Com­pa­ny. “Tel­o­gis is our trust­ed part­ner, and the suc­cess we’ve had with Ford cus­tomers in North Amer­i­ca made them the only choice for Ford’s Euro­pean plat­form offer­ing.”

Mak­ing its debut at the 2014 IAA Han­nover Com­mer­cial Vehi­cle Show, Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis will be avail­able to fleet cus­tomers as a deal­er-installed option in select­ed Euro­pean mar­kets, offered through Ford’s net­work of spe­cial­ist Tran­sit Cen­ters, and is war­rantied and ser­vice­able at Ford deal­er­ships through­out Europe.

“The launch of Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis in Europe is an exten­sion of what has become the indus­try-stan­dard in OEM telem­at­ics in North Amer­i­ca,” said Greg Dziewit, vice pres­i­dent, OEM busi­ness at Tel­o­gis. “Mak­ing this offer­ing avail­able to Ford’s Euro­pean cus­tomers will help them run more effi­cient, cost-effec­tive and safer fleets and trans­form the way they do busi­ness.”

Based on the real-time data, the Ford Telem­at­ics pow­ered by Tel­o­gis soft­ware plat­form deliv­ers a com­pre­hen­sive range of action­able busi­ness infor­ma­tion that enables fleet man­agers to oper­ate their vehi­cles in the most effi­cient way and to help ensure dri­vers are fol­low­ing safe and eco­nom­i­cal dri­ving prac­tices.

“Ford Telem­at­ics is anoth­er exam­ple of Ford facil­i­tat­ing the deliv­ery of smart tech­nol­o­gy to help our cus­tomers enjoy the high­est qual­i­ty, safest and most sus­tain­able oper­a­tion of com­mer­cial vehi­cles avail­able today,” said Steve Bar­row, com­mer­cial vehi­cles ser­vice oper­a­tions man­ag­er, Ford of Europe.
