Prometeon Tyre Group is partnering with GreenRoad Technologies Inc. to expand its fleet management services offerings.
Austin, Texas-based GreenRoad Technologies Inc. is a provider of driver behavior technology designed to improve safety and reduces costs for fleets.
Prometeon says the new agreement will enrich its Pro-Services fleet services portfolio through the addition of “Pro Drive,” a new product based on GreenRoad’s expertise in the fleet management and telematics sector.
The company says Pro Drive will help fleets improve their drivers’ behavior, resulting in significant savings in fuel consumption, reduction in incident rate leading to a new level of efficiency in TCO (total cost of ownership).
Prometeon will roll out Pro Drive progressively in Europe early 2020 and then will deploy it in stages worldwide.
Commenting on the agreement, Alain Versace, Prometeon’s head of global truck services and trade marketing, said: “This partnership with GreenRoad allows us to offer its leading fleet performance management solution to our customers throughout the world. This is a further confirmation of Prometeon’s commitment to support its customers with cutting-edge technology applied to their daily business”.
