Actionable insights through precision fleet data
October 11, 2022
Airbags, anti-lock brakes, rear-facing cameras – these are just a few vehicle features that, within the last 30 years, became standard* in new model year cars and light trucks. As technology and safety features such as these advance, wouldn’t you expect vehicle connectivity to also evolve into standard equipment?
What was once a luxury has become standard.
Base Connectivity from Element Fleet Management provides a core set of data to improve decision-making and automation. This program delivers data using an OEM-connectivity data feed, powered by Motorq, and supports model year 2023 vehicles from GM, Ford, Stellantis and Tesla.
The single most important data point in fleet is the odometer reading
Element’s team of telematics and strategic consulting experts identify the odometer as the starting point in crafting a perfect set of data points for Base Connectivity.
Making fuel pump odometer entry a thing of the past
When odometer readings are captured at the fuel pump by fleet drivers, it’s often less than accurate data. In fact, 15% of these odometer entries are incorrect. Not to mention the rapid increase of electric vehicles (EVs) in fleets, providing no fuel pump odometer readings at all. This imperfect data collection method can lead to making decisions that may not be the best for your unique fleet needs.
By capturing the odometer reading through Base Connectivity, you’ll see precise data in our odometer repository every time. With accurate odometer readings, you can:
- Understand vehicle utilization
- Optimize replacement cycles
- Automate preventive maintenance notifications.
In addition to odometer data insights, Base Connectivity provides fuel and EV charge level reporting to identify misuse and supports last known location data which can be used in fuel and charging fraud identification, plus aid in locating lost vehicles.
Proven return on investment with Base Connectivity
Don’t let data inaccuracies negatively impact your fleet budget, business decisions and outcomes. Based on a cross-client study, the accurate odometer readings of Base Connectivity can save your fleet an average of $600 USD per vehicle, per year through better fleet planning, while paying for itself in savings more than four times over.
Effective and simple fleet data to drive results
By using OEM data, Base Connectivity doesn’t require any additional hardware and integrates seamlessly with Xcelerate™, Element’s central fleet management technology platform.
