Targa Telematics is selected as FCA partner for fleet management services

Targa Telematics and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have signed a multi-year agreement for fleet management solutions for business customers in the European market. The initiative covers all FCA connected models in the EMEA area.

Targa Telematics promises to offer a simple, intuitive interface that is accessible remotely and gives real-time control over activities, service status, maintenance and assistance of each vehicle.

The objectives is to go beyond the mere installation of a black box capable of recording and transmitting vehicle data and to create an actual technological architecture capable of communicating with individual vehicles, progressively integrating services and solutions aimed at making their management and maintenance more effective and efficient, and ensuring a better user experience, for both the driver as well as the fleet manager.

In a context in which the ability to extract value from vehicle data is proving to be increasingly crucial, the development of smart mobility solutions is a fundamental component for car manufacturers' customers. 

With the agreement, the collaboration between the two parties is further strengthened with the creation of the new “My Fleet Manager Portal”.

A key feature of "My Fleet Manager" will be the electric capabilities of the car portal to be launched during the current year, for which connectivity will be a key enabler and will help the fleet manager to check the level and status of vehicle charging, to start the charging session remotel, to plan charging slots having an overview of the entire fleet and to set the departure time of vehicles and ensure that drivers find them at a comfortable temperature.

The project involves all FCA connected models, with both internal combustion and electric powertrains, on 32 EMEA markets in total.

“This initiative is of strategic importance for FCA within the context of the new ecosystem for connected vehicles,” says Francesco Abbruzzesi, Head of MOPAR EMEA.

Nicola De Mattia, Targa Telematics CEO said: “The mobility sector is undergoing significant evolution and, in this context, Targa Telematics is playing a leading role, accompanying its customers in the innovation process in order to accelerate their path towards Digital Transformation.”
