Deloitte & Geotab

Evolving telematics to build the future of Fleet Management

Deloitte Consulting Srl is the first Deloitte member firm in Europe to join forces with Geotab. The new alliance supports businesses in their efforts to better manage their fleets and understand the TCO of their vehicles. Through this strategic relationship, both companies share a customer-centric approach, with the aim of delivering premium value to businesses across different industries.

Together we create a new offering of services and products, weaving together Deloitte’s strategy capabilities in the transportation and fleet management domain and the know-how of one of the market leaders in the telematics and Connected Vehicle space.

Deloitte and Geotab offer you the capability of connecting all vehicles in your fleet via a smart and robust system, leveraging data management capabilities that can offer real-time information to both clients and employees.

Connected to the Future

Our analysis of the industry and experience with organizations implementing telematics suggests that a large minority of companies have effectively experienced tangible benefits from their approach to the technology.

Deloitte’s Telematics Maturity Model identifies 5 levels to assess the maturity of your fleet, capturing the critical elements required to reach higher levels of maturity.

  • Level 1 – Disconnected Fleet: minimum or none telematics capability. Operational costs are high and driver safety awareness is very limited.
  • Level 2 – Technology Led: technology led implementation of telematics. Usually sold on large business benefits but limited use of data, poor integration with legacy systems and low engagement with drivers. Employees consider telematics a possible threat to their privacy and a breach of working surveillance acts.
  • Level 3 – Limited Visibility: The organization uses telematics systems to track vehicles. Employees have better grasp of the telematics potential and operational processes are scarcely adjusted to embed telematics capabilities. Foundational safety benefits as well as financial outcomes due to lower fuel burn.
  • Level 4 – Embedded: a standard operating model for telematics is embedded in the organization. Data-insights lead to a cultural change significantly improving driving behavior across majority of the fleet and to optimization in fleet operating costs.
  • Level 5 – Insight Driven: Data becomes the fuel of the fleet. A Drive Safe culture has been established and there is a flow-on effect to other parts of the organization. Financial and safety benefits are methodically realized. Data is the core asset for continuous improvement.

Our experience and industry reviews show that substantial safety benefits and return on investment can be achieved when an organization reaches Level 4 on our Maturity Model. However, most of the organizations are currently set between Level 1 and Level 3.
Reaching the maximum level of telematics Maturity means much more than integrating Geotracking in your vehicles. An insight driven fleet unlocks the full potential of your fleet, using core operational data and processes to help drive a radical transformation of your business, substantially augmenting safety benefits and ultimately positively impacting ROI.
