In today's touring coach market, the challenge is to balance the economic interests of the operator against the passengers' desire to be networked. A solution already exists: using the available FleetBoard equipment, our bus and coach customers have a constant overview of their vehicles, all around the world. Intelligent services - specifically developed for the bus and coach segment – support our customers in their fleet management. And overall they derive a financial advantage from lower fuel consumption and higher vehicle availability. With the aid of the installed FleetBoard equipment, in the event of an unplanned stop, the driver can relay the error and case data and the exact location of the vehicle (GPS) to the 24h SERVICE hotline at the touch of a button; and specific measures can be prepared for solving the problems at the right service outlet. This makes it possible to ensure faster, more targeted repair of the coach on the spot, thereby frequently avoiding the need for time-consuming servicing and repairs in the workshop. In this way the buses and coaches are back on the road quicker.
In addition, the DispoPilot.guide – the telematics system from FleetBoard – can be used through a mobile tablet to give help and instructions on adopting an economic driving style to save fuel and on the best route to take. The driver and the coach operator can also send order details and news updates to each other.
