Route4Me’s Telematics Integration with EZ Fleet

Route4Me partnership with EZ Fleet provides integrated route optimization planning, dispatch and vehicle tracking.

 

Establishing the EZ Fleet Connection

To establish a telematics connection, first, log into your Route4Me account. On the menu to the left, click “Settings” → “Telematics Gateway”.

 

Click “Add Telematics Connection”.

 

Type in a name for your connection (it can be anything, such as a company name).

 

Select “GlobalCloud EZFleet” in the “Telematics Vendors” drop-down menu.

 

Next, type in your EZ Fleet username and password.

 

Finally, click the authorization checkbox at the bottom of the window.

 

Click “Save” when you’re done.

 

Viewing Your EZ Fleet Vehicles in Route4Me

After connecting to your EZ Fleet account, your vehicles are automatically imported and re-synchronized into the account of the corresponding Route4Me user. When tracking data is captured from EZ Fleet, then data sent to Route4Me is evaluated to determine which vehicle (by ID) is associated with this connected vehicle ID. The last-known active route for the corresponding Route4Me vehicle ID is identified, and tracking data is appended into this route’s tracking history.

To access your vehicles list, go to “Team” → “Vehicles”.

 

All imported vehicle data will be available in this section.

 

New vehicles are automatically reconciled every minute. You can link a vehicle to a route in two ways: during the route planning process or after the route has been planned.

To link the vehicle to a route during the route planning process, click the “User” tab, then select the appropriate vehicle in the “Assign Vehicle” drop-down list.

 

To link the vehicle to a planned route, click “Assign Vehicle” in the Routes List.

 

Data streaming in from EZ Fleet automatically gets associated with that vehicle ID. You will be able to track vehicle activity in the Route Editor or in the Routes Map section. To bring up your vehicle location and tracking history on the map, click “Tracking” → hover your mouse cursor over “Route” → select the timeframe for which you want to show tracking history.

NOTE: It may take up to 60 seconds for your vehicles to show up on the route map.
