Increase vehicle utilisation with our fleet management and tracking solution

Forum Connect is our suite of fleet management, fleet tracking, and telematics, designed to help you unlock more value from your vehicles with increased visibility and connectivity. Whether you’re looking to improve the utilisation rate of your fleet, reduce the administration workload required to locate them or simply comply with regulations, Forum Connect can help.

We leverage the sophisticated power of our IoT connected devices and custom software to give you an unfair competitive advantage. We do this by offering end-to-end asset and vehicle tracking that improves traceability and reduces losses across all types of assets and many different industries.

Forum Connect is more than vehicle tracking. It’s tracking for every type of asset — including non-powered assets, industrial assets, smart sensors and people — with easy software integration and artificial intelligence that enables real-time decision making. Now you can track where your assets have been and monitor on-board diagnostic data, movement patterns, performance and operator behaviour.

The benefits of fleet management and telematics

Track any vehicle or asset

Know where your assets are at all times and get route recaps to tell you where they’ve been.

Forum Connect works across all assets including vehicles, machinery, parts and even people. Fleet tracking has never been easier with Forum Group.

Maximise utilisation

Equipment is too big of an investment to not be generating a return.

Use Forum Connect’s asset data to determine which assets are being underutilised and take action to optimise usage achieving 100% utilisation. Know where your assets are at all times.

Maximise your tax rebates

Forum Connect helps you maximise your fringe benefit rebates and fuel tax credits with automated journey data, fuel consumption and mileage.

Reports are stored securely and easily shared with Forum Group's asset tracking offerings.

Is your business at risk of CoR non-compliance?

The Chain of Responsibility (CoR) legislation has been developed to ensure every person involved in your heavy vehicle supply chain is collectively responsible for the safety of your transport operations.

With our fleet management solution in place, you can monitor and manage driver behaviour to ensure your drivers are safe and complying with transport law.

Our AI Dashcam will alert the driver and the fleet manager in real-time to detect risky behaviour such as fatigue, distraction, phone usage and dangerous driving. These events can also be recorded to aid in the coaching to upskill drivers, correct negligence and reduce risk.

Are you maximising your tax rebates? Don't miss out!

Did you know that your Fuel Tax Credit (FTC) rate is higher for vehicle use on private roads and for auxiliary use?

Forum's asset tracking provides accurate, accessible data on how much fuel was used and where for the highest possible claim.

A few ways we can connect you to your assets

Identifying your underutilised assets

Managing a national fleet of vehicles can be a difficult and costly exercise. If vehicles aren’t being used, you’re paying for parking, registration and maintenance, without adding any value.

With Forum Connect, you gain visibility over all your assets and the information you need to optimise your fleet to the exact right size.

Eliminate improper use of assets

For a long time, tracking non-vehicle unpowered assets was impossible.

Say you ran a business that provided portable skip bins or dumpsters to construction sites or business premises. How could you ensure that your customers weren’t dumping trash or filling the bin from other locations?

With Forum Connect, you can place tamper-proof, battery-powered trackers on these assets and monitor movement, improper use and even detect when they are emptied.

Stop the theft of your assets

Poorly secured industrial equipment is a common target for thieves, and once missing, recovery can almost be impossible.

In the event of a theft, Forum Connect’s tracking and geo-fencing alerts will detect and alarm you if an asset is moved out of a certain geographical location, allowing you to act immediately increasing your chance of recovering it.

Make precise decisions through custom monitoring

Every day on a farm you’re going toe-to-toe with weather conditions to get the maximum yield from your crops. Assessing soil and weather conditions across multiple fields can be very manual and time-consuming.

Forum Connect’s remote monitoring technology will send real-time data from every field to your IoT platform, providing you the insights to make precise irrigation decisions and drive greater efficiency.

Key features of our fleet telematics solution

forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-Tracking

Our asset tracking is available for both real-time tracking of fast-moving equipment or people and daily tracking of slow-moving equipment like skip bins and shipping containers. You’ll know when your assets are on the move, when they’re idle and where they’ve been left for the night — and even receive alerts if they leave a geofenced location.

With complete visibility, you can analyse movement patterns to better allocate assets, replay routes for later optimisation and find opportunities to streamline your asset utilisation.

In addition to helping you take control of your key equipment, asset tracking also:

  • Works on any asset including machinery, vehicles, non-powered assets and even your people.
  • Allows you to use asset tracking insights to perform better in all of your key operational metrics.
  • Reduces the cost of locating assets and helps you prevent theft or loss.
forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-Monitoring

We’ll help you understand the way your assets are being used in even greater detail. In addition to monitoring the movement of your assets, you’ll have a rich source of operator data, asset utilisation, asset health and productivity information.

Set real-time alerts on any unwanted activity including theft, geofence breaches or dangerous driving, and respond quickly.

With Forum Connect the possibilities are endless, but here are a few common use cases:

  • Assessing the idle time, fuel consumption and productivity of heavy machinery.
  • Monitoring driver performance including speed, harsh braking and proactively managing fatigue.
  • Keeping an eye on maintenance requirements and asset health - including engine temperature, tire pressure and any service alerts.
forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-Route-and-Fleet-Optimisation

When you’re operating at scale, incremental improvements to asset utilisation and route optimisation make a huge difference to your bottom line.

By combining data and artificial intelligence, Forum Connect can create optimal routes for your drivers using historical journeys and live traffic data. Once a better route has been identified, you’ll be able to communicate with your driver while they’re on the road.

Fleet optimisation allows you to quickly see if your assets are operating at capacity, and if not, reduce the size of your fleet for an immediate financial gain.

Route and fleet optimisation help you:

  • Improve driver performance and show up on time more often.
  • Predict faster routes in advance of critical deliveries and tasks.
  • Ensure your expensive assets aren’t going unused
  • Reduce operational expenses and increase the number of tasks completed each day.
forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-AI-Reporting-tab

Forum Connect comes equipped with AI and Machine Learning power that transforms your asset data into predictive insights and alerts.

The two technologies constantly analyse your live and historical data and suggest optimisation strategies, identify potential risks and unexpected patterns. The available data and recommendations are presented on easy to use dashboards within your IoT platform.

Simply put, AI and Machine Learning deliver insights faster and help automate manual processes that slow you down. They’re getting smarter every day too.

With in-built intelligence you can:

  • Predict threats and respond to risks before they become issues.
  • Easily visualise, analyse, export and share key data.
  • Attach QR codes to equipment that, on scanning, load the latest asset information and tasks.
forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-Safety-and-Compliance

Protecting the people operating your assets is even more important than protecting the assets themselves. Our safety solutions help you keep your drivers safe and meet your Health and Safety and Chain of Responsibility compliance requirements.

Driver performance information, automatic logs and pre-start safety checklists combine to form a robust health and safety report and give you the full picture of your team’s safety. Custom reports allow you to report on the metrics that matter most, and historical information is captured and stored securely to ensure there’s an audit log of your safety record.

Keep your safety and compliance programme running smoothly with:

  • Driver safety, performance and behaviour information.
  • Fleet maintenance logs and built-in engine diagnostics.
  • Data that helps you upskill your drivers.
forumgroup-iot-asset-tacking-API-Integration

Go even further with your asset tracking by integrating your IoT platform with your other tools and systems through the open API.

Connect your asset data with CRMs, ERPs, and other platforms to create a single source of truth for asset performance. With the ability to sync with several sources of information,we can also integrate other vehicle tracking systems including John Deere and Caterpillar.

With centralised data, you can analyse asset performance on a whole new level and drive efficiency improvements throughout your business.

Here’s how some of our customers are already using the API:

  • Gaining visibility of all assets in one place including those that run a completely different tracking platform.
  • Geofencing assets and scheduling alerts any time the perimeter is breached.
  • Integrating asset tracking data with job booking platforms.
