Crew Chief™ powered by Telogis® – two companies that individually strive to deliver the best for commercial fleet operators – have combined forces to create the ultimate solution for hard-working American fleets.
Ford®, the biggest seller of work trucks in the U.S., has joined with Telogis™, a preferred supplier of telematics solutions to some of the world’s biggest fleets, to assist fleet owners to fine-tune their operations, improving efficiency and boosting productivity through advanced GPS monitoring.
Crew Chief is a web-based GPS fleet tracking, or telematics, solution. It is used by fleet managers to monitor vehicle and driver performance, both historically and in real-time. It helps managers know how their assets are being utilized, and highlights areas where hidden costs can be minimized and productivity gains improved through optimizing routing, delivering better fuel efficiency and eliminating unauthorized usage.
Crew Chief is focused on helping business owners to become more aware of fleet operations so they can set, and achieve, operational goals while dealing with rising costs and reducing budgets. The three main areas where fleets stand to benefit from using Crew Chief are safety, fuel economy and minimizing their impact on the environment.
While telematics solutions for commercial fleets is not new, offering them as factory-installed option is. Ford have revolutionized the way fleet operators can purchase a telematics solution, not only simplifying the purchase process but also including a wealth of vehicle diagnostic data. This is the only Ford-certified hardware solution and can be serviced at any Ford dealership. The technology can also be retro-fitted to older Fords and non-Ford vehicles.
The Crew Chief solution is proven technology that consistently deliveres measurable savings for fleets from a range of industries, as well as of various sizes. By helping fleet operators know exactly how their money is being spent, specific action plans can result in significant savings. For example, studies have shown fuel economy improving by more than 15% across the entire fleet, as well a drop in side trips and unnecessary idling.
