CarCheckup has announced the release of its new Fleet Management System that uses onboard diagnostic (OBD-II) technology to monitor and analyze information that enables fleet managers to reduce fuel costs, maintain vehicles and increase productivity.
“CarCheckup empowers fleet managers by giving them information to optimize their fleet and improve the bottom line,” says Jennifer Funkhouser, CarCheckup chief executive officer and co-founder. “Many fleet systems relying on GPS are expensive and provide inaccurate data. CarCheckup uses data directly from a vehicle’s engine control unit, providing unparalleled data analysis and reports for fleet managers to increase profits.”
CarCheckup’s system is designed to allow personnel to export telemetry information stored in the vehicle’s computer system by recording data and syncing it to a computer, which creates customized and recurring executive reports of everything from idle time to highest speeds and all metrics in between, allowing fleet managers to set company driving goals and improve driving habits.
CarCheckup has no buttons, dials or switches and is designed to connect to a vehicle’s diagnostic port to gather data as someone is driving; the device then can be plugged into a computer to upload the data using the built-in USB drive. The data is stored at CarCheckup.com, where fleet and driver reports are available 24/7.
