Is Ford Telematics Available for All Commercial Vehicles?
Ford has made more unprecedented moves throughout its history than any other automaker in the United States – or the rest of the world, for that matter. And Ford is continuing that tradition with a monumental announcement regarding its world class Ford Telematics technology. Previously, only Ford commercial vehicles have benefited from the capabilities Ford Telematics offers, but that’s no longer the case, which brings us to our opening question – is Ford Telematics really available for all commercial vehicles? The short answer is a surprising yes. That’s right, now any commercial vehicle, regardless of make and model, can be equipped with Ford Telematics. How can that be? We’re going to tell you how right here.
The reason behind Ford allowing all commercial vehicles – regardless of make and model – to be equipped with Ford Telematics is a simple one: Ford wants all commercial vehicles and fleets to be able to be supported by the features and capabilities of Ford Telematics because Ford knows that’s the best way for our nation’s fleets to succeed. But Alex Purdy, the Director of Business Operations for Enterprise Connectivity at the Ford Motor Company explains it best.
“At Ford, our commitment to fleet customers goes beyond the mix of their fleet. By supporting all makes and models, expanding the capabilities of Ford Telematics and providing complimentary management tools, we’re arming fleet managers with the knowledge they need to maintain uptime and increase productivity across their fleet.”Alex Purdy, Director of Business Operations, Enterprise Connectivity, Ford Motor Company
