Real-Time Insights on Routes and Vehicles Deliver More Productive, Safer, and Optimised Fleets;
Digital Platform Drives More Effective Operations and Competitiveness
Ooredoo, one of the region’s leading ICT and IoT providers, is further expanding its innovative portfolio, with today’s launch of Ooredoo Fleet Management. The solution can help organisations drive to new levels of business competitiveness with their vehicle fleets, routes, and drivers.
Ooredoo’s Fleet Management service, based on a digital platform by Geotab, a global fleet management leader, is one of Qatar’s leading examples of IoT solutions for businesses. Ooredoo Fleet Management leverages sensors on vehicles, which transmit data on Ooredoo’s secure and highly-available network through the Ooredoo IoT Connect platform, then analysed by software for real-time decision-making in daily business operations.
Using Ooredoo Fleet Management, organisations can receive in-depth fleet information and reporting, including driver behaviour, engine and vehicle status, and location tracking. Organisations can then analyse the data to design custom maps and optimise their routes to better serve their customers, reduce vehicle mileage and fuel consumption, be alerted early to potential critical repairs, and integrate important data with third party applications.
Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi, Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “Ooredoo continues to drive innovation, to ensure that we truly are a one-stop ICT leader for Qatar. Ooredoo Fleet Management is Qatar’s leading IoT solution, designed to transform organisations involving fleet and field workforces. Using Ooredoo Fleet Management, Qatar’s organisations can drive new levels of customer satisfaction, fleet efficiencies, driver safety and productivity, and cost optimisation on maintenance and fuel.”
Supporting organisations as they scale up, Ooredoo’s Fleet Management web-based reporting platform can support a virtually unlimited number of vehicles and users. Ooredoo Fleet Management is provided as a one-stop-shop solution, including all the system components, in-vehicle installations, and enterprise-grade mobile IoT connectivity.
The Ooredoo Fleet Management platform is very flexible, and can be easily customised to cater to the needs of different industries and sectors. Among the key sectors that could benefit from the solution are sales and services; transportation (including taxis, buses, and rental cars); logistics and delivery; construction and heavy equipment; energy (oil and gas); government and public safety responders; and utilities, healthcare, or waste management.
Vishnu Perumalsamy, Managing Director of Geotab MEA, added: “As a global provider of open IoT fleet management platform services, we are thrilled to partner with national and international carriers. We continue to drive our ongoing innovations, to ensure that we make great strides towards impactful improvements. By using Ooredoo’s Fleet Management solution, powered by Geotab’s open platform and provided through our global IoT partner Altran, World leader on Engineering and R&D services, organisations can gain a new level of insights into their operations, and better track their fleet and workforce for optimal performance.”
