Today, Viasat Connect France is active in the aftermarket, which is similar to a third party. The first installation is the installation of the beacons at the factory (native box), the second is the installation done in the dealership, the third is done outside the dealership, at the end customer’s place. This win-win partnership will allow Viasat Connect France to harvest the APIs provided by SoFLEET, and SoFLEET to showcase the scope of its expertise, by offering APIs to a key player in the aftermarket.

SoFLEET is the technology that completes our offer. […] Thanks to SoFLEET, we can differentiate ourselves from our competitors on certain calls for tender or certain business.
“This enriched data will feed the entire fleet monitoring process. We give our customers a range of data and indicators to better manage their fleet of vehicles and machinery, contain their TCO, help green their fleet while securing their equipment and personnel.”
Today, a fleet of vehicles is necessarily connected. Whether it’s fuel consumption, mileage, maintenance or geolocation, companies have a vested interest in controlling end-to-end logistics in real time. Indeed, the main challenge of fleet management is to be able to anticipate, in order to optimize it.
Viasat Connect France’s unique telematics solution, deployed on an ergonomic platform such as SoFLEET, allows fleet managers to monitor their fleets in real time, receive alerts and access the necessary information. This makes it easier to make decisions about fleet management while protecting employees and assets.
