Telematics systems offer ways to manage the fleet in real-time by promoting safer driving practices, proactively monitoring vehicle and equipment diagnostics, and even automating some of the functions these assets perform. These benefits have to be weighed against the initial investment cost, impacts to employee morale, and the need for additional staff to filter and act on the data that is being reported. The two telematics systems that the Department is currently using on a trial basis are both low risk in terms of initial investment, likelihood to initiate FOIA requests, negatively impacting employee morale, and need for additional staffing. These systems and others should continue to be explored in an effort to improve efficiencies and save costs across the entire fleet.
