How do you see the fleet management market in Taiwan and Asia? What are current trends?
Taiwan has already deployed traffic management systems on highways and urban roads, as well as multi-lane, free-flow electronic toll collection systems on freeways. These advances have created the perfect environment for advances in intelligent transportation, shared transportation and environmental sustainability.
With connected cars expecting to become mainstream in the future, the maturity of 5G and AI technologies has not only enabled V2X communication technology to serve as the basis of communication for the autonomous vehicles, but also to improve reliability and safety of connected cars. With over decades of network communication development, R&D strengths and experience in 5G, Askey is looking to provide global clients with 5G empowered smart solutions across industries.
What are challenges in the market? How can fleet management solutions help?
Common problems that fleet managers face with traditional solutions include the inability to track vehicle location in real time, drivers taking unplanned routes, excessive idling, unauthorized vehicle use, failure of timely delivery and inappropriate driving behaviors.
The biggest challenge to adoption, however, is driver resistance, which can only be overcome by constant communication and positive management attitude.
With advanced fleet management systems, all these problem can be solved all at once. By implementing fleet management systems, 60 percent of the management fee can be saved through lowering labor costs, overtime pay and fuel costs. Fleet managers can even pre-determine maximum driving speeds to prevent drivers from speeding and getting fines.
In addition, the ability to get real-time data through GPS will enable fleet managers to make route adjustments or dispatch new vehicles when there are urgent requests, increasing customer satisfaction while optimizing vehicle usage.
Why should global customers consider Taiwan brands as alternatives to current mainstream brands? What sets your company apart?
Taiwan has gradually transformed itself into a “Strong Nation of IT Application & Services.” With 30 years of experience in ICT solution design for consumers, other brands and system integrators in the country, Askey has established itself a one-stop network communication solution provider – covering everything from hardware to software.
