Element Fleet Management is now offerings its customers the option to integrate OnStar data into analytics platforms, including  Xcelerate, the analytics-driven fleet management system.

Customers will have access to fleet location, usage and vehicle diagnostic insights from GM vehicles properly equipped with OnStar technology, according to the fleet management company.

“Connected devices are revolutionizing the global economy, and connected vehicles are at the forefront of this trend,” said Kristi Webb, president and CEO, Element Fleet Management North America.

Using vehicle data provided by OnStar, after first obtaining appropriate driver notice and consent, Element customers can measure and utilize odometer readings, diagnostic trouble codes, GPS location, speed, harsh braking and acceleration, and other safety information. Fleet managers will receive selected insights directly from Element and its Xcelerate platform.

“OnStar can be a very powerful tool to help improve safety, productivity and cost performance, especially when fleet managers work with companies like Element who can help them understand what is important in the data, and give them practical advice to improve driver behavior, reduce fuel consumption, and more,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet.

Element said it will look to improve safety and optimize fleet performance through analytics and the Xcelerate platform.
