Transmetrics, a Sofia, Bulgaria based scale-up that provides artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics solutions for logistics companies, has just announced a new tool aimed at large vehicle fleet managers.

Koev added, “Our pilot customers have already seen significant benefits with FleetMetrics, including generating revenue from their data, automating tasks, improving fleet KPIs, and enhancing profitability.”

The new tool aims to solve for a number of issues including: Consolidates Telematics and TMS  data, as well as data from fuel and toll transactions or other systems, providing a unified view of fleet operations; Continuous monitoring of driver and truck performance metrics pinpoints improvement areas, ensuring operational efficiency; constant fuel efficiency monitoring across operational categories; swift profitability monitoring of key financial metrics, and more.
