Targa Telematics, a tech company specialising in IoT solutions and digital platforms for connected mobility, is excited to announce its new collaboration with TCH Leasing, one of the UK’s top 30 contract hire and fleet management companies. This partnership aims to provide proactive service maintenance by offering real-time alerts about the vehicle’s condition in advance, helping TCH Leasing avoid Vehicle Off-Road (VOR) situations and preserve the vehicle’s health.
Targa Telematics leverages its relationships with vehicle manufacturers to ingest data from embedded sensors within TCH Leasing’s vehicles, including odometer (ODO) readings, service countdowns and dashboard warning lamps. The solution enables TCH Leasing to strategically plan vehicle maintenance, reduce VOR incidents and pre-book courtesy vehicles when necessary. Furthermore, it allows for increased reactivity in dealing with any potential issues indicated by the vehicle’s warning lamps, minimising potential damage to the vehicle.
Utilising OEM data has many advantages, including avoiding vehicle downtime during the installation of aftermarket devices, a fast and simple remote activation process, and the provision of secure and reliable data. However, for any vehicles manufactured without the embedded sensors to support OEM data, Targa Telematics can install its own devices to transmit the required information, allowing TCH Leasing to cover the entire fleet, regardless of the brand or model of the vehicles.
The new partnership with Targa Telematics provides TCH Leasing with the information and visibility needed to better manage its fleet and take a proactive approach to vehicle maintenance.
“Targa Telematics is positioning itself as a leader in managing OEM vehicle data and delivering innovative digital mobility solutions to its customers, regardless of the data collection method” said Chris Horbowyj, Sales Director Targa Telematics UK. “Thanks to its expertise in the vehicle leasing and rental industry, Targa Telematics delivers tailored solutions addressing the needs of this sector, facilitating their operations and enabling the development of new services and business.”
As well as the proactive service management solution, Targa Telematics supports TCH Leasing to enhance the security of their fleet by providing a Stolen-Vehicle Recovery (SVR) solution that empowers swift recovery in the event of theft.
“We reviewed many telematics providers in the marketplace and found Targa Telematics to be an industry leader in the services that they are able to provide” said Jennifer Jones, Systems & Compliance Manager TCH Leasing. “With OEM connectivity available across a wide range of manufacturers, the service enables us to easily turn on the functionality within each vehicle, not only to provide security of our assets, but also to provide information to our maintenance controllers and to better manage our customers’ fleets. The availability of Targa Telematics’ online system provides easy access to our data and allows us to schedule reporting to integrate with our internal systems to ensure we are always as informed and up to date as possible.”
