Service Vill selects Targa Telematics to manage its chauffer service fleet.

Targa Telematics simplifies Service Vill’s adoption of its Fleet Management service, thanks to data collected directly from OEM boxes.

 

Service Vill, a chauffeur-driven car rental company operating in Italy and Switzerland, has chosen Targa Telematics, a tech-company specialized in the development of IoT solutions and digital platforms, to monitor its large fleet, consisting of several models of luxury and high-end cars used to provide reliable and tailored logistics services to its customers.

The digital Fleet Management platform developed by Targa Telematics allows the entire Service Vill fleet to be managed and monitored, helping to achieve their three main objectives: greater control of costs,  increased operational efficiency, and improved safety for drivers and vehicles, supported by Targa Telematics’ network of 24/7 Control Rooms.

Targa Telematics utilizes information from connected vehicles, ingesting and normalizing data from the data stream of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplied devices. The normalization process aims to make data uniform, consistent and usable, thereby improving information management, analysis and integration. Through this innovation, Targa Telematics enables numerous services for mobility operators and provides an important step forward for customers such as Service Vill, which can digitize their fleets quickly, accessing native data provided by car makers. This leads to economic and operational benefits for Service Vill, and provides a competitive advantage to Targa Telematics, thanks to its partnerships with major vehicle manufacturers, such as Stellantis, Mercedes Connectivity, BMW and MINI, and most recently Ford, to integrate their data streams into its platform. Targa Telematics’ platform provides Service Vill with consistent information and a complete fleet view from a single dashboard, regardless of car make and model. It also simplifies commercial and legal issues related to the variety of data acquisition.

All this is made possible by Targa Telematics’ established experience in managing large fleets, such as those owned and operated by rental companies, which include a variety of different vehicle brands and models. Furthermore, Targa Telematics’ platform also integrates cars equipped with post-production installed devices in order to provide fleet managers with a complete and simplified view of their assets.

Our main focus is building digital platforms for connected cars, collecting, integrating and analyzing data from cars from any car manufacturer”, commented Alberto Falcione, VP Sales of Targa Telematics. “The goal is to simplify and accelerate customer adoption of our technologies, regardless of whether the data comes from OEM or after-market solutions”.

We relied on Targa Telematics for its extensive experience in the field”, added Paolo Valsecchi, CEO of Service Vill. “Having a large fleet and managing customers mainly related to business travel, speed of response is a big advantage over competitors. Constantly monitoring the fleet helps the operations department satisfy the most demanding customers with an immediate response”.
