Zubie has launched a new telematics product designed for fleet managers to simplify vehicle maintenance, which was created through a new partnership with a car care technology-start-up.
Zubie's partnership with CarAdvise led to the release of Zubie Smart Maintenance, a program designed to give small and mid-sized fleets a simplified way to manage fleet maintenance and leverage a network of more than 20,000 service facilities, according to the company.
In addition to being able to track the location and health of their vehicles using Zubie’s existing technology, Smart Maintenance provides fleet managers the added capability to track, manage, and pay for their vehicles’ maintenance, all within the Zubie application, which the company said can deliver an average savings of 26%.
Smart Maintenance offers fleet managers an end-to-end digital solution to detect, identify, and alert them about vehicle problems, then schedule and pay for vehicle service and repair, all while storing comprehensive maintence history on work performed and work declined, according to the company. Fleet owners gain access to comprehensive reporting metrics on cost of maintenance per vehicle or the entire fleet. And independent ASE certified technicians are available for advice on all maintenance transactions.
The Smart Maintenance launch coincides with the kickoff of the 2019 NAFA I&E conference, being held in Louisville, Kentucky.
