Free2move partnership leverages on-board telematics – Telematics
Guidepoint Systems, a global provider of automotive telematics and software as a service (SaaS) for automotive OEMs, vehicle dealerships, rental agencies and fleets, has partnered with Free2move, the global fleet company, of mobility and connected data which is part of Stellantis.
Guidepoint Air is a new data monitoring service, designed to easily manage vehicle fleets without the need to install additional hardware. The Free2move-GuidePoint Systems collaboration allows data from properly equipped and eligible Stellantis MY2018 and newer vehicles including Ram, Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep to be received within Guidepoint Air to provide inventory management services to dealerships, fleet management services for commercial and government fleets, audit services to floor plan lenders, and vehicle diagnostic reports to consumers.
“We are continuing our strategy to facilitate access to connected vehicle data and provide insights to Stellantis fleet owners and operators by using Free2move solutions such as Connect Fleet, which we plan to deploy soon, but also by enabling the connectivity with platform partners, for the benefit of users of these platforms, such as Guidepoint, whose users can now access the data of their eligible Stellantis vehicles thanks to the connection established between the server Free2move MultiBrand and Guidepoint,” said Benjamin Maillard, General Manager of North America at Free2move.
These advanced solutions give fleet owners the ability to increase operational efficiency, reduce downtime and increase driver safety. Free2move takes these capabilities a step further and combines data insights with new mobility methods that expand the reach and breadth of fleet operations tools.
Connected Stellantis vehicles for government fleets, commercial trucks and commercial vans (including the ProMaster) can be managed via integrated telematics and Guidepoint’s fleet management system.
This new partnership is the latest range of services introduced by Guidepoint Systems to support fleet owners. Last November, Guidepoint launched FleetMovil, a new fleet management system optimized to reduce costs and capture all relevant fleet data. Guidepoint can monitor over 300 vehicle data parameters including speed, direction, location, engine warning indicators, maintenance reminders, carbon emissions, fuel efficiency, monitoring power take-off, driving behavior and engine idling.
“As a Tier 1 telematics provider to the automotive industry for over 20 years, we understand the importance of vehicle data to our customers,” said Samuel Spencer, President and CEO of Guidepoint. “This new partnership will allow us to deliver exceptional value and service to fleet customers, dealers and others looking to maximize their business performance.”
