IVECO has opted for Continental’s VDO Fleet TIS-Web solution to facilitate tachograph data management and provide insightful analysis for its customers. With access to TIS-Web tachograph data via the Application Programming Interface (API), IVECO fleet managers can benefit from a more efficient method to optimise their fleet operations.
European Companies Team up to Ensure Tighter Tachograph Solutions
German-based Continental and IVECO, based in Italy, are collectively looking to enhance safety on European roads. By integrating the functionalities and driver data of Continental’s TIS-Web fleet management software into IVECO’s fleet management services, the two mobility leaders enable fleet managers to fully comply with the legal requirements of the new EU Mobility Package from 2022 onwards. Initially, IVECO will actively promote TIS-Web integration to its Italian, German and Spanish customers with plans to roll out the service Europe-wide further down the line, in a significant European extension for Continental.
How TIS-Web Helps Analyse Driver Behaviour on the Road
TIS-Web has the capacity for storing, accessing and analysing data from smart tachographs. With it, fleet managers needing to monitor their drivers and vehicles can match the respective data per European legal requirements while accessing statistics for drivers and truck activities. From there, they can use a range of reports for optimising driving style and efficiently managing drivers’ daily tasks.
At the touch of a button, TIS-Web fleet managers can check compliance with the regulations for driving and rest periods as well as speeds and receive information on infringements at a glance. Furthermore, the solution can also factor in local and national regulations and provide fleet managers only with information relevant to their businesses or countries of operation. And since TIS-Web is a cloud-based service, fleet managers can access it from anywhere. IVECO customers who have not yet signed up for the TIS-Web services can now obtain these through the IVECO sales network without the need for extra hardware.
The tachograph data will be downloaded via the IVECO telematics device and routed through the IVECO back-end directly into TIS-Web. This aids the fleet as it runs automatically without requiring any effort from the fleet manager.
Additionally, the technology helps maintain the competitive industry environment and the increasing legal requirements force European fleet managers to boost their efficiency to safeguard their future in the business.
For Continental, this new partnership with OEM, IVECO is a great addition to the programme. “We are pleased that, together with our long-term partner IVECO, we can help increase the efficiency of their customers’ fleet management,” commented Dragan Kostevski, Sales Director of OEM and Mobility Projects in the Connected Commercial Vehicle Solutions business segment at Continental.
Fabrizio Conicella, Global Head of Digital & Adv Technologies at IVECO, ushered in the partnership by adding, “Continental’s TIS-Web application perfectly complements our fleet management services and adds real value for fleet managers, especially in terms of compliance. It’s great that we can now offer our customers this additional service with seamless data integration between IVECO and Continental platforms.”
