By / 3 weeks ago / News / No Comments

BMW and Mini fleet customers are now able to access connected car data through Webfleet Solutions on all new cars as standard without the need for hardware installations.

The programmes uses the factory-fit data connection on new BMW and Mini passenger cars to provide info including trip data, GPS tracking and fuel consumption

Vehicles from both brands can now connect with Webfleet Solutions’ Webfleet software-as-a-service platform under the OEM.connect programme, bringing telematics data insights. All that is needed to connect the vehicles is the vehicle identification number (VIN).

The programme means fleets running BMW and Mini cars can access the standard Webfleet applications, such as fleet performance reporting, trip data, GPS tracking and fuel consumption, helping them boost the efficiency, productivity and safety of their operations.

Instant notifications cover vehicle diagnostics, such as tyre pressure warnings and enable the monitoring of a fleet’s health status in real time.

All vehicle data is displayed within the Webfleet interface and can be accessed from anywhere via the Webfleet mobile app. OEM.connect also allows fleet managers with vehicles from different manufacturers to view all of them in a standardised way on a single platform, making comparison and analysis simple.

This is also backed by assured data security with an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified service.

Webfleet is currently offering its OEM.connect service in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy, UK, Ireland, Poland and the Netherlands and will also be available in other countries and regions in the future.

Taco van der Leij, vice president, Webfleet Solutions Europe, said: “We will continue to collaborate with car manufacturers in the field of telematics to offer the best, most innovative and convenient solutions to our customers.”
