The fleet management software provider Azuga uses Smartcar’s APIs in its new hardware-free fleet tracking solution. Businesses with fleets of all sizes benefit from the Smartcar-powered solution as an affordable and user-friendly alternative to Azuga’s GPS tracking devices.
Azuga helps businesses improve the operations and safety of their fleets by offering affordable and easy-to-use GPS fleet management software for fleets of all sizes. In addition to their existing fleet management system with GPS tracking devices, Azuga now offers a hardware-free alternative that allows fleet managers to save additional costs and onboarding time.
Azuga’s Smartcar-powered solution can connect to most new vehicle models across 19 makes in the United States. Onboarding a new or existing fleet to the hardware-free solution takes less than a minute. All that businesses need to do is log in with their connect services account and consent to sharing their fleet’s vehicle data with Azuga.
“Fleet management hardware is compelling but not always within the budget of a business that needs to operate and manage a set of vehicles,” said Azuga Executive Vice President of Sales Derek Few. “Through our new Smartcar-powered solution, we can bring our product within the price points of a larger set of businesses while also offering instant onboarding and impeccable user experience.”
As soon as a business has onboarded its fleet, Azuga uses Smartcar’s APIs to monitor each vehicle’s location, mileage, EV battery or fuel tank level, tire pressure, and engine oil life. In addition to these features, Azuga offers a unique solution for electric vehicle fleets. The product allows businesses to monitor the state of charge, remaining range, and charging status of EVs and to remotely start and stop charging vehicles at the best times.
“We’re excited to see that Azuga is making fleet management incredibly simple,” said Smartcar CEO Sahas Katta. “I’m glad that Smartcar can play a role in this next-gen product, which will shape the fleet management industry for years to come.”
