Otonomo Inc. and LeasePlan USA announce a strategic partnership to offer insights into fleet vehicle performance and behavior.
Starting this month, LeasePlan’s OneConnect telematics platform will leverage Otonomo’s application-ready OEM data — without any aftermarket devices. LeasePlan clients will immediately be able to manage and optimize driver behavior, fuel costs, maintenance trends, and expenses across a wider range of vehicles.
"Our partnership with Otonomo reinforces LeasePlan's pole position in the connected vehicle space as we continue to expand our ecosystem with the most desirable technology we can find," said Felipe Smolka, EVP of transformation at LeasePlan. "This organic relationship has roots that stem from years back. As longtime colleagues, Ben and I have remained dedicated to leadership in the connected mobility space. Alongside Otonomo, LeasePlan gets to substantially grow our network of direct-vehicle connectivity to include Toyota, GM, Ford, FCA, and many other automakers. In addition, this strategic partnership will unlock many new fleet analytics use-cases for all our clients leveraging our own cost-effective telematics platform called OneConnect.”
“We are delighted to partner with LeasePlan," Ben Volkow, CEO and co-founder of Otonomo, said. "Otonomo will give LeasePlan’s customers the power to enhance the safety, efficiency, and compliance of their fleets through their existing telematics platform, OneConnect.”
OneConnect provides driver and vehicle information in a fully integrated platform within LeasePlan’s fleet management system. With the integrations of Otonomo’s platform, fleet managers will now be able to use OneConnect to connect and manage a range of different vehicles.
