Mike Albert Fleet Solutions launched a new proprietary analytics platform that monitors the mechanical health of fleet vehicles as well as when, where, and how long they are used and how safely they are driven.
AlbertIQ, the new platform, uses serverless technologies to merge telematics data with Mike Albert’s ASE-certified maintenance team to provide fleet administrators with a prioritized list of mechanical issues and open recalls that need attention, said Jeff Hart, president at Mike Albert. It also tracks and reports when vehicles are used outside of company guidelines and are driven unsafely.
“With AlbertIQ, fleet administrators are empowered to resolve potential problems in their earliest stages to increase safety, prevent costly repairs, minimize driver downtime, ensure compliance, maximize vehicle life, maintain vehicle resale value, prevent missed customer appointments, and protect their company’s brand image,” said Hart.
Vehicle Health Monitoring
AlbertIQ collects and crunches diagnostic data from fleet vehicle telematics, scores the top items in order of importance, creates real-time vehicle health reports, and generates tickets. Open recall data is collected and ticketed as well. After all the tickets are reviewed and consolidated, notifications are sent to the fleet administrators and drivers.
Vehicle Behavior Monitoring
AlbertIQ acquires data on vehicle usage including when a trip is outside business hours and days, the number of daily authorized stops and trips is exceeded, and the daily authorized distance and total trip time is exceeded.
Driver Behavior Monitoring
AlbertIQ compiles data on how each vehicle is driven, tracking events like speeding, seat belt nonengagement and harsh acceleration, braking and cornering.
“With the help of the Mike Albert team we have been able to identify and quickly repair necessary recalls and engine faults to keep our drivers safe on the roads. Access to the live data has been simple and easily accessible on all levels of management and our drivers,” said Ciara Romero from Bancsource, one of the AlbertIQ pilot site clients, of the platform.
