The Benefits of Telematics for Government Fleet Operators

A March 2015 Executive Order sought to improve government agency fleet management and vehicle efficiency with telematics. As such, many state, local, and municipal-run fleet vehicles have telematics devices installed. 

Here are a few of the benefits government fleet operators have seen since employing a telematics solution


Visibility into vehicles’ real-time locations, speeds, braking, and driver behaviors helps to monitor and control important aspects of safe driving, ultimately improving the safety of everyone on the road.

In cases of theft, assets can be located via GPS. If an installed telematics device stops functioning, access to location history can still help improve the chances for recovery.


Measuring and reporting performance increases productivity. Telematics enables fleet managers to identify optimum routing for operations. The use of real-time routing tools helps drivers avoid traffic, saving fuel and time which reduces operating costs.

For emergency vehicles, location information lets dispatchers know who’s closest to the scene.
