38 percent of company fleets in the United Kingdom are using telematics, according to a research by 3GEM Research and commissioned by the business arm of British motorist association RAC among 500 UK business decision-makers. The research was performed in September 2015.
The study also revealed some interesting insights about fleet telematics. Some 68% of firms said that telematics had cut their combined fuel bill, 58% of companies reported that telematics had reduced the amount they paid in speeding fines, and 47% said that their use had led to a drop in insurance premiums.
Furthermore 18% of companies have also used telematics data to prove that a driver wasn’t at fault for an insurance claim, and a further 17% have used the data to successfully appeal against a speeding fine.
