Renault Trucks has announced the launch of the first LCV OEM telematics system – ‘Renault Trucks Vantelligence, powered by Verilocation’, a new, turn-key fleet management programme, specifically designed to provide operators with the same levels of data and fleet performance for LCV vehicles as HGVs.
‘Renault Trucks Vantelligence’ is a completely modular system suitable for any Renault Trucks Master Euro-6 and helps to control a fleet’s day-to-day operations and reduce operating costs. The new system can monitor LCV driver behaviour in order to improve safety, fuel efficiency and performance, track vehicles in real-time for improved fleet efficiency, customer service and will monitor environmental performance for eco reporting. In addition it can integrate with existing on-board weigh and camera systems to record and report meaningful data, quickly and effectively.
Commenting on the launch, Grahame Neagus, Head of LCV for Renault Trucks UK and Ireland says: “Using our truck heritage, and our ethos that the LCV is a small truck and not a large van, we are harnessing the knowledge gained from our HGV business and applying it to our LCV range. Integrated through our R&M contracts and tailor-made for the Renault Trucks Master, we have taken our time to carefully ensure our new Vantelligence system is integrated into, and optimised for, the Renault Trucks Master vehicle and engines.”
Grahame continues: “Vans, like trucks, are profit centres and with some LCVs notching up to 40, 50 or even 60k miles per year, fleets could literally save thousands of pounds by monitoring them. For example, by utilising the Vantelligence data you can typically expect a gain in fuel efficiency of up to 9% and as well as promoting better driving through league tables on driver performance. It promotes safer driving too.”
