CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zubie, a connected car service provider focused on maximizing connected car capabilities for consumers and businesses, today announced the launch of its Zubie Business fleet monitoring solution for small to mid-sized businesses.
Zubie uses a smart device to plug directly into the car's On-board Diagnostics (OBD) port, and capture and deliver valuable vehicle and driving data. The newly launched fleet monitoring solution will enable businesses to leverage that technology in ways that meet the unique needs of companies that operate a small number of vehicles and drivers. Zubie's solution is roughly half the price of competing fleet solutions on a per car basis, with the added benefit of no installation costs or hassles.
The Zubie Business solution uses Zubie's core AlwaysSmart™ (always on and always connected) device and a newly-designed web and tablet user experience that is tailored for fleet monitoring and analytics. It works on both iPad and Android tablets. The AlwaysSmart technology allows fully autonomous monitoring of vehicle location, activity and diagnostics, without requiring any driver interaction, and continues even while parked. Features such as engine diagnostics, vehicle maintenance, fuel cost calculations, and enhanced driver safety will deliver significant cost savings and efficiencies for customers.
"This solution is ideal for any small to mid-size business with fleet cars," said Tim Kelly, Zubie chief executive officer. "The owners and leaders of these companies are deeply invested in the safety of their drivers and minimizing operational costs, but they are put off by the costs and installation complexities of traditional fleet solutions. Zubie presents a much more compelling option for them that is significantly less expensive, can be installed in seconds and provides the iPhone-age user experience that they're used to."
