How Are the Internet of Things and Predictive Analytics Revolutionizing Vehicle Fleet Management? From transit to telecommunications to cleaning and maintenance services – if your company relies on cost-effective and efficient fleet operations, Automotive Resources International (ARI) is ready to revolutionize the way you do business. Just 10 years ago there was a lack of transparency into fleet operations. How long is a driver taking on service stops? Where is the best place to refuel given the driver’s location? Which repair facility should be used and why? To help its customers answer those questions in real time, ARI turned to SAP. With the SAP HANA® platform as the backbone of its IT infrastructure, ARI uses the Internet of Things, geospatial analysis, and telematics combined with SAP® Predictive Analytics software, powered by SAP Leonardo, as the foundation for Intelfleet – the fleet management application used in its call centers. New innovations in machine learning using the SAP Leonardo Machine Learning capabilities are just on the horizon. With sensor-based data gathering and real-time analytics, ARI can offer new products, services, and compelling analysis to its customers, so they can better understand how their fleets are operating and where they can cut waste – helping them run better and reduce costs for their own end customers.

As the largest privately held fleet management company in the world, ARI is committed to helping customers manage vehicle fleets more efficiently and lower operating costs. The key to doing this is strong investment in technology. Using the Internet of Things and telematics combined with predictive analytics, ARI brings data on vehicles, drivers, movement, maintenance, and more together into one source – enabling customers to use that information to influence business decisions today and fleet strategy in the future. “ARI entered a European market that was very old-fashioned – no transparency for customers.
