Concept

Appy Fleet is an app-based telematics solution designed to help businesses reduce driver risk, save money on fuel bills and manage their fleet and mobile workforce more efficiently. Through a Driver App and an online Manager Dashboard, it combines the features of traditional hardware-based fleet telematics with the latest smartphone app technology, offering an easy-to-use solution with no hardware or installation costs and the ability to be deployed across an entire workforce almost immediately. In a bid to help businesses operate safer fleets and fulfil its aim to making roads safer, Appy Fleet offers its core solution for free.

How they’re disrupting

Appy Fleet replaces the need for a hardwired box or OBD telematics device. The app is paired to one or more vehicles to enable the tracking of journeys and driver identification, with no interventions needed from the driver following the initial pairing. Unlike other app-based solutions, that rely on motion detection, Appy Fleet’s unique Bluetooth tethering system enables reliable journey recording, accurately detecting when a journey starts and finishes.

Disruption potential

The global vehicle fleet market is on the increase with over 140,000 million units in the USA alone. Increase in fleets, means an even greater need to reduce driver risks as our roads get busier.

Investments and future

Appy Fleet has received £750,000 from parent company Trak Global Group. The product is available in the USA and France, as well as, the UK and is looking to expand in new territories for 2018.
