ODO telematics solution for SME fleets launched

A pay-as you go telematics solution designed specifically for small and medium sized businesses has been launched.

ODO has been created by automotive technology company Drive Software Solutions Limited (DSSL) and is designed for use not just by fleet managers but also by HR managers, financial managers, business owners and SME business drivers on the go.

ODO uses DSSL’s DRIVE software platform combined with the Software as a Service (SaaS) technology of the Oracle Cloud, to create a fleet management offering designed specifically for small and medium sized businesses.

The solution is available with no up-front costs as companies only pay for the service they actually need via a monthly subscription. There is also no largescale desktop implementations or user training required. It is easy to use and deliberately built for non-technical users across the organisation – whether they are checking all company vehicles have up-to-date MOTs, insurance and service records, inputting a company car driver’s latest journey details, or just trying to work out when a specific vehicle is due for change.

ODO’s general manager Gordon Lyster said: “ODO addresses the issues of managing fleets which many small businesses struggle with day to day. It helps managers track costs, vehicle usage levels, maintenance and servicing records, run driver licence checks and more. The intelligence that ODO provides helps fleets stay the right side of the law when it comes to compliance and crucially for firm’s bottom lines it will mean that at last they have a way to keep costs down.”

ODO will offer full telematics integration as early as next month and access and input via an easy to use mobile app for iOS and Android devices by June 2018.
