Ford Pro offers complimentary telematics services to help commercial customers
Ford Pro Intelligence is making it easier than ever for commercial customers to benefit from telematics to help boost their businesses’ productivity – whether they’re deploying gas-powered or electric vehicles – with powerful complimentary data services.
Ford Pro Telematics Essentials is a complimentary web-based application that is available to all commercial customers using gas-powered Ford vehicles with embedded modems.
“No matter how big or small a commercial fleet may be – and whether it’s fully electric or not – vehicle data plays an important role in improving uptime and efficiency,” said Brent West, general manager, Ford Pro Intelligence. “Both Ford Pro E-Telematics and Ford Pro Telematics Essentials provide fleet managers with key information and abilities through an intuitive interface – at no additional charge.”
Ford Pro Telematics Essentials is designed to help fleet managers operate their fleets more efficiently, providing instant odometer readings, diagnostic trouble codes, recall notifications, trackable maintenance alerts, and information around engine hours and oil life. It will even relay warning lights so that fleet managers can resolve issues faster, improve uptime and potentially avoid costly repairs. All this information is conveyed to fleet operators through a dashboard on a computer that makes it easy to see where their fleet stands without relying on drivers to report issues.
Ford will continue to improve feature offerings for Ford Pro Telematics Essentials. In October, Ford introduced the ability for fleet managers to search for dealers and schedule maintenance services via a link from the telematics dashboard once they receive an alert that a vehicle needs service.
