France Telecom offers fleet services

Orange Business Services, a unit of France Telecom, has launched Mobile Fleet, a set of tools that the company stated is designed to increase the productivity and availability of fleets of vehicles and mobile workers within small and medium size businesses.

The solution includes customisable, Orange Mobile Forms, 4MB of data allowance and access to real time traffic updates from the RAC and Trafficmaster.

Recognising that road based businesses have different needs to those based at a desk, Orange Mobile Fleet removes the need for drivers to constantly return to base.
It enables detailed job specifications to be delivered to field workers and, in return, for them to send job updates and invoices back to their headquarters, saving time and money in the process.

The inclusive 4MB data ensures the sending and receiving of approximately 1,000 standard Mobile Forms is included within the price. While real time traffic updates, received by calling 240 from an Orange phone, give mobile workers a convenient way to avoid traffic congestion between jobs and get their work done faster.

Mobile Forms can be easily customised using a drag and drop menu and requires no specialist IT support. Data can be sent and received in real time and can be exported in various formats to standard business applications such as Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel.

Orange is a key brand of the France Telecom Group, providing mobile, broadband, fixed, business and entertainment services across Europe.
