GPS – more than just directions.

Maybe you’ve only used GPS to get from point A to B. But GPS can do a lot more than just give you directions. Crew Chief™ powered by Telogis® uses GPS technology to revolutionize the way you manage your fleet, helping you to cut costs and boost productivity.

GPS works by using a GPS receiver (or “black box”) that hides under the dashboard, so all your fleet vehicles can be tracked in real-time. The data is collected, stored and processed using a web-based application from Telogis that converts all your fleet data into an easy-to-use dashboard and meaningful customizable reports.

Crew Chief can be factory-installed with any of the following new Ford trucks purchased through your local Ford dealership: F-150, Super Duty, E-Series and Transit Connect. Crew Chief is also available for retro-fitting on your existing fleet vehicles.

It’s what you know that makes the difference.

You can’t manage what you’re not measuring. Crew Chief™ powered by Telogis® changes all that. With detailed vehicle metrics on a wide range of attributes from airbag faults to oil life remaining, nothing will escape your notice.

Monitoring vehicle metrics can save your fleet a lot of money, helping you to avoid expensive mechanical failures or unsafe working conditions that can be a huge liability. For example, sensors can detect and alert you to water in the fuel tank. Water is incredibly damaging to diesel engines, corroding injectors and quickly causing irreparable damage. Early detection is your best form of protection, as even water separators are not always effective.

Another metric is excessive idling. Idling gets 0 mpg and is often needless and wasteful. Some fleets have saved thousands of dollars by knowing which drivers and vehicles were idling excessively.

For the full list of vehicle metrics you can measure, monitor and manage, see Editions.

Oil Life Remaining

Oil Life (% remaining)

With oil life monitoring you’ll know if a vehicle is in need of a service, promoting trouble-free motoring and less downtime.

Tire Pressure

Tire Pressure

Real-time alerts when the tire pressure warning light is activated. Low tire pressure can reduce fuel economy and affect vehicle handling.

Driver Insurance

Driver Insurance (expiring)

Keep tabs on your driver’s insurance expiration dates, ensuring you are operating in compliance.

DTCs

DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Code)

Maintaining the health of your fleet is always a priority. Remotely manage your vehicles with real-time visibility into the DTCs.

Engine Coolant Temperature

Engine Coolant Temperature

Real-time monitoring and alerts for a vehicle’s engine temperature allows you to save on costly mechanical issues, such as poor fuel economy with engines that are too cold or broken thermostats and cooling systems in engines that are running too hot.

Water in the Diesel

Water in Fuel (diesel only)

Water is incredibly damaging to diesel engines, corroding injectors and quickly causing irreparable damage. Early detection is your best form of protection, as even water separators are not always effective.

Excessive RPM

Excessive RPM

Excessive RPMs, particularly when performed over an extended period of time, not only waste a lot of fuel but can also shorten the life of the vehicle and contribute to more frequent servicing and parts replacement.

Seatbelt

Safety Belt

Stay on top of fleet safety with real-time alerts and reporting on driver safety belt use. Helpful for proving driver safety records and investigating infringements or vehicle accidents.

Airbag

Airbag

Get an instant alert for an airbag fault, indicating an urgent problem that requires attention. Assist managers to enhance fleet safety and manage employer liability.

Battery Voltage

Battery

Monitor a vehicle’s battery voltage. Get instant alerts for a draining battery with low voltage to make sure you’re never stranded.

Excessive Idling

Excessive Idling

With detailed driver idling reports you’ll know which drivers are idling excessively and for how long.

VIN

VIN

Record each vehicle’s VIN number to assist in stolen vehicle recovery. This also saves time when entering fleet details as vehicle information such as make, model and engine size is recorded automatically.

Driver License (expiring)

Driver License (expiring)

Store and record your team’s driver license expiration dates, ensuring your team is driving with valid and current licenses.

Hard Acceleration/Braking

Hard Acceleration/Braking

Hard Acceleration/Braking is an indicator of driver behavior. Measure ‘hard’ braking events and send alerts/ reports to key stakeholders as part of the Safety Program.

Features born in the real world.

Crew Chief™ powered by Telogis® is a telematics solution that doesn’t have its head in the clouds. It was developed by a company in-touch with the real needs of fleet managers and the challenges they face everyday. It’s a solution packed with features that are designed, developed and thoroughly tested right alongside real users.

It’s web-based so there’s no software to install or upgrade and no backups to be made. It has clever features to help you cope with information overload, such as spatial clustering (to easily group vehicles) and fast access to individual vehicles. Automated reporting and a user-defined alerts system mean you can “set and forget”, and still have your finger on the pulse.
