There are a number of areas where telematics systems can benefit fleets. Telematics systems do more than just keep fleet managers abreast of the location of their vessels. They greatly streamline communication and record and transmit information on whether vessels are in motion or stationary, their engine performance (including power-up, shutdown, idling or malfunctions), speed, skipper conduct and more besides.

In addition, telematics systems integrate vessel routing and maintenance scheduling with skipper performance, providing a comprehensive and broad-based solution to the key challenges facing fleet management. Thus, they go well above and beyond tracking alone.

Telematics can also be used in a multitude of ways, to monitor generators, wind farms, vehicles, and much more besides.
