Webfleet partners with Ford to offer integrated telematics

March 20, 2023
This partnership eliminates the need for after-market hardware installations, the company stated, as it provides easy and cheap telematics access to Ford vehicles.

Ford has recently joined Webfleet, Bridgestone’s fleet management solution, via Webfleet’s OEM.connect partner program.

With this partnership, Ford passenger cars and vans with line-fitted connectivity can connect with the Webfleet service platform and telematics technology. All that is needed is the vehicle identification number (VIN).

“We are happy to welcome Ford to our OEM.connect program and offer an integrated telematics solution to our joint customers,” says Taco van der Leij, VP of Webfleet Europe.

With OEM.connect, Ford passenger car and van customers can access the standard Webfleet applications, including fleet performance reporting, trip data, GPS tracking, and fuel consumption, helping to streamline their operations.

Instant notifications around vehicle diagnostics, such as tire pressure warnings, mean the fleet’s health status can be monitored in real time, enabling fleet managers to keep their drivers safe and minimize vehicle downtime. All vehicle data is displayed in the Webfleet interface and can also be accessed from anywhere via the Webfleet mobile app. 

OEM.connect for Ford vehicles is available to order now in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy, UK, Ireland, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands. The program will be made available in more countries and regions in future.
