By the end of 2019 most Ford vehicles will be connected
From the October 2018 print edition
Fleet services provider ARI has announced a data integration service with Ford Commercial Solutions to provide a telematics solution for fleet customers.
The agreement combines Ford Commercial Solutions’ Data Services with ARI insights, the company’s fleet management portal, to deliver visibility into the operating conditions of fleet vehicles.
By the end of 2019 most Ford vehicles will be connected—these vehicles will include a built-in telematics unit to transmit data from the vehicle to the transportation mobility cloud (TMC). The information flows from the TMC into ARI’s data warehouse where it’s integrated with fleet data and available for analysis.
