KDDI Singapore, FLECT offer Cariot real-time vehicle management in Southeast Asia, Middle East
Using Air SIM cards to make global SORACOM services easy and installation-free
TOKYO, Jun 11, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - KDDI and subsidiary KDDI Singapore are joining forces with FLECT to offer Cariot vehicle management services to corporate clients in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
Cariot is a real-time vehicle management service that provides corporate clients with the ability to use the Internet to monitor digital data including vehicle speed and distance traveled, engine rpm, fuel consumption, primary electric power voltage and more. No special installation is required, Cariot simply plugs into a vehicle's cigarette lighter.
The ability to make vehicle information visible enhances compliance and safety capabilities while helping cut costs and make business operations more efficient. Using the Global Air SIM card provided by SORACOM Inc., the service is capable of roaming and automatically switches from one country's systems to the next when a vehicle crosses a national border.
This is particularly useful in regions such as Southeast Asia, in which vehicles frequently pass through numerous adjacent countries and vehicle traceability has become an important issue. Numerous traffic accidents have also been caused by unsafe driving practices such as sudden starts, making employee driver education a crucial issue for companies.
As a distributor, KDDI Singapore will begin by offering the service to Japanese corporate customers in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, and will expand its sales effort among local firms. As the international regional distribution hub for Cariot, KDDI Singapore will also work to make the service available in as many countries and regions as possible.
As KDDI Group works to achieve its goal of integrating telecommunications and life design, it strives to be a company that is always offering exciting new ideas. We provide powerful support for the global business operations of our client companies, creating new customer experience value.
