Create a New Telematics Connection – Creating New Telematics Connections for the Participants Associated with Your OA Affiliate Account 

An Affiliate is a Route4Me partner who has the Route4Me Operational Assessment (OA) system integrated into their business or organization for analyzing their customers’ telematics data or a reseller who rebrands Route4Me’s services and offers them to end-users, as well as uses the Route4Me OA system for attracting new customers by showing them the value of optimization. Participants are the customers (companies/businesses) or end-users who are associated with the given Route4Me Affiliate. To start importing tracking/routing data from the telematics device(s) of a particular Participant (company) into your OA Affiliate account for analysis and optimization, you need to create a new Telematics Connection between this Participant’s OA account and Telematics Vendor account. A Telematics Connection is the gateway through which telematics data travels from the Participant’s Telematics Vendor account to the Participant’s OA account. By establishing a Telematics Connection between the OA account of a particular Participant and this Participant’s Telematics Vendor, all tracking and vehicle data captured by the Participant’s telematics device(s) will first go to the Participant’s Telematics Vendor account and from there it will be automatically imported into the Participant’s OA account through the established Telematics Connection (Telematics Device → Telematics Vendor →(Telematics Connection)→ Participant’s OA Account).

 

To create a new Telematics Connection in your OA Affiliate account:

  1. Go to “User Management” from the navigation menu at the top;
  2.  Go to the “Telematics Connections” tab;
  3. Click on the “Create New” button.
