OneConnect reinvents telematics for LeasePlan
We are using interactive dashboards to help us visualize data in ways we never have before. With OneConnect, the brand new connected vehicles platform here at LeasePlan, we’ve found a way to help fleet managers analyze historical driver and vehicle data in one convenient place. We’ve rolled out OneConnect within our very own fleet to start, and we’re here to tell you the solution truly is a game changer.
So, it’s fully integrated – what does that really mean?
This means for the first time ever, we can visualize our telematics data and our very own proprietary fleet data in the same place. Traditionally, telematics offerings have been siloed off from FMC datasets, often available through a separate view that can be downloaded and manually integrated to drive deeper insights. And while this does serve as a perfectly viable solution, OneConnect takes it a step farther. The platform marries rich telematics data from Geotab with your fleet’s key data points, including everything from fuel tracking to vehicle oil life.
What kind of driver data can I see?
OneConnect is specifically designed to integrate data points from our driver scoring solution, OneScore, which adds a unique value to the platform. Fleets opted into OneScore can visualize driver performance according to OneScore data, allowing us to not only view our most risky drivers, but the least risky drivers in our fleet as well. This makes it easier for us to reward top performers for a job well done, and to establish a baseline for what good driving behavior looks like for our fleet.
For fleets not opted into OneScore, this level of detail can still be attained through event counts instead. Because OneConnect keeps tabs of speeding, seatbelt, harsh braking and acceleration events, these metrics are also readily available to best illustrate your fleet activity.
Digital maintenance guides get the ‘thumbs up’
You let us know digital vehicle maintenance guides (VMGs) are in demand, and we’re excited to announce they’ll be coming soon. While drivers can still use the printed VMGs found in their driver onboarding packets, the MyLeasePlan app will now feature a digital VMG for easier driver access. Some of the perks of this new feature:
- Details of the last maintenance service will also be visible, as well as future maintenance mileage thresholds and their respective services
- Mileage thresholds will be identical to those listed on the printed VMGs – there are no changes to the maintenance schedule itself
- No need to worry about keeping track of the VMG or damaging it with shop residue
