Platform-Solutions – the future of fleet management


Sadrick Widmann,
CEO, CarbookPlus GmbH

Mr. Widmann, there are many digital logbooks out there. Why should customers choose CarbookPlus?
Because users with CarbookPlus can evaluate vehicle costs, fuel consumption or driver statistics in real time. And we also offer tools for companies – such as vehicle reservation system for fleets, driver assignment, route planning and optimization, and other reporting capabilities.

That is to say, CarbookPlus is a modern fleet management solution for SMEs?
Definitely. From discussions with SMEs we know that many fleet vehicles are not well managed at all or have bare minimum tools. Here, we not only offer an efficient and highly professional solution, it is also free for drivers and companies.
How does CarbookPlus finance itself when it’s free for drivers and businesses?
From the contribution that providers pay for additional services and interfaces to workshops, insurance companies, automotive dealerships or gas stations. This is also a real value add for the drivers and fleet managers, because they not only navigate to the nearest, cheapest petrol station or workshop, but also receive direct help from our app in the event of a breakdown or accident, or even handle the communication with the insurance company.

Do you think that such a platform solution will in fact succeed?
We are absolutely convinced. Because for drivers and fleet managers, the ease and comfort increases significantly. All you need is an app to centrally manages all your data, including receipts, invoices, and services. The added value for the service providers is high, who can communicate so directly with their respective target groups and potential new customers. A classic win-win scenario.

Fleet management simplified with our free tool

Fleet managers increase efficiency and ergonomy with the CarbookPlus App

Wimsheim, 24. October 2017 The free cloud-based app from CarbookPlus fully and independently automates all the procedures, that Fleet managers have to keep an eye on: It captures the relevant data so as to save time, analyzes it and enables a comprehensive view of individual vehicles or the entire vehicle fleet in real-time. Through networked data and service-offerings, optimization potential can also be unfolded even in small and medium fleets. 

Fleet Management

In particular, fleet managers face a multitude of challenges in the efficient use of pool vehicles. Even in smaller car fleets, it is demanding to record the utilization and current position of the automobile as well as its technical condition as up-to-date as possible. Vehicle bookings must be managed, drivers assigned and all movements of the vehicles documented. CarbookPlus provides fleet managers with a handy ergonomic tool that combines all relevant information into a free app. Moreover, with an integration option for dealers, workshops and insurance companies, as well as digitally archivable and always readily accessible vehicle documents, every driver is well taken care of.

Everything in sight – Everything under control. 

Using an interactive dashboard, fleet managers assemble and monitor their fleet. The integrated service plan ensures optimum fleet utilization and efficiency: Using Live-status, it informs fleet managers and drivers about booked and available vehicles. Vehicle reservations for field service, in-house operations or for delivery teams can be carried out with just a few clicks. Each driver will be notified by the app of any allocated bookings and directly lead to the location of the vehicle. Bookings from the applicant can be looked up and canceled at any time in the app. The automatic tracking function using GPS enables the user to create a legally compliant, gapless logbook. Routes and trips can not only be planned, but also tracked and analyzed. Any deviations are marked by the system in order to optimize fuel consumption and the time taken for upcoming trips. Using geo-fencing, the fleet manager is also able to define travel boundaries. The system notifies him as soon as they are violated.

Travel and other costs can be settled promptly and recorded in the company: The required bills/receipts can be automatically read into the system by means of optical character recognition (OCR) and archived. They are forwarded through the app.

Reliability all around: Integrate service partners 

The system reminds fleet managers of customer service appointments and due insurance premiums, provided, that the workshops, dealers and insurance companies are integrated into the system. In the event of a breakdown or accident, users are not only able to get quick roadside assistance and automatically set off emergency calls. They can also create complete incident reports directly in the app and forward them to the insurance company. The integrated round-the-clock search for suitable workshops and emergency services completes the service offer. For fleet managers, this is another opportunity to reduce the time and cost.

CarbookPlus: Hand in Hand with service partners

Mobile App for fleet management now also with the incident reporting feature

Wimsheim, 4. April 2017              The connected car platform for vehicles and drivers – CarbookPlus expands its free vehicle management services: It is now possible to forward Incident reports stored in the CarbookPlus cloud servers to the insurance company. As a further step, communication with the customer for dealers and workshops will be possible via the app.


CarbookPlus offers its users now the option to record incidents quickly where it occurred: For one, information and photos of the incident can be taken, and then there is the possibility to enter the other party information in order to create a complete incident report. License and insurance information can be comfortably saved via the App. The mobile solution correspondingly pre-populates the fields during the creation of a report. When all the data is entered, the user friendly interface allows the user then to send the report with just a click to the insurance.
Direct connect to dealers and workshops     
In the coming months, CarbookPlus also plans to offer a connection to dealers and workshops. This makes communication much easier: the service partners interact directly with their customers – a concept that benefits both sides. Vehicle holders can arrange appointments more quickly or ask for accessories directly. Dealers and workshops, on the other hand, have a suitable tool to approach their clientele in a personalized manner and increase customer loyalty.
Proven features for personalized pay-as-you-drive models         
By bundling all personal and vehicle-related information in real-time, CarbookPlus has proven itself in the field of insurance telematics for pay-as-you-drive policies. The independent and accurate assessment of the mobility behavior serves as an optimal basis for individually tailored insurance rates. Vehicle users are also given an insight into their behavior in road traffic and can thus improve their driving style. Accident damage can thus be actively prevented. The topic of data protection is not neglected. Only the data that is defined in the contract is provided to the insurance company.

Lecture: Change the way you drive

The CarbookPlus platform CarbookPlus bundles all information – vehicle and driving behavior related in real time. It is a free service with which drivers can manage their vehicles or the entire fleet. The aim is to simplify the recurring activities related to the use of the vehicle. For e.g.: A digital logbook is an integrated feature which can be used for tax saving purposes. Similarly, the search for the best fuel station on the way or to remain connected with the community. Here, one can compare vehicles, insurances, dealers, service stations and can post important tips for the travel.

 

In addition, CarbookPlus enables an independent and accurate assessment of the mobility behavior with respect to the individual and vehicle and therefore serves as the basis for a personalized and usage dependent billing. The collected data could in future be used for Pay-as-you-drive polices in the Insurance telematics. Customers benefit then from the customized tariffs, individually tailored to them.

 

Thomas Widmann stellt presents CarbookPlus and its many advantages at the next meet of the BITKOM’s Big Data workgroup , to be held on the 14th September, 2016 in the Ernst & Young GmbH premises in Stuttgart.
