Toronto, October 15, 2015 – TELUS has teamed up with Fleet Complete and Intact Insurance to create a unique fleet-management insurance solution for Canadian businesses. TELUS Fleet Tracker customers could now be eligible for my Fleet Solution from Intact Insurance. Together, Fleet Complete and my Fleet Solution provide fleet owners with powerful tools to help manage commercial vehicles more effectively, while encouraging safer driving and offering potential insurance savings.
"This is a compelling offer that provides businesses with increased operational efficiencies and potential savings"

“TELUS Fleet Tracker is one of the most comprehensive and widely used fleet tracking solutions in Canada,” said Shawn Sanderson, TELUS’ vice-president of the Internet of Things. “my Fleet Solution takes this offering one step further and encourages any eligible business with a fleet of vehicles to make smarter and safer driving decisions, while helping them reduce operational costs.”
Since 2007, TELUS Fleet Tracker, powered by Fleet Complete, has helped organizations across Canada leverage the Internet of Things to better manage their fleets. The solution provides valuable real-time information, such as vehicle location, idling times, speed, insight into how the vehicles are being operated and whether they require preventative maintenance to avoid costly repairs. This helps Canadian organizations reduce fuel and vehicle maintenance costs, improve driver safety and provide better customer service to their clients. Adding my Fleet Solution from Intact Insurance can now provide potential insurance benefits.
Thanks to an innovative online dashboard, created through the collaboration between Intact Insurance and Fleet Complete, my Fleet Solution customers can view their fleet’s information in real time and review a snapshot of their vehicles’ performance with key metrics like braking, acceleration and speeding, among many others.
“my Fleet Solution offers commercial customers an industry-leading fleet telematics platform,” said Alain Lessard, senior vice-president, Commercial Lines, Intact Insurance. “my Fleet Solution customers will get valuable insights into their fleet to help them better manage business costs and operations, together with providing access to Intact Insurance’s loss prevention services.”
Canadian organizations that choose TELUS Fleet Tracker with my Fleet Solution will qualify for an enrollment discount on their commercial fleet insurance with Intact Insurance, and can qualify for potential additional savings based on their fleet’s performance.
“This is a compelling offer that provides businesses with increased operational efficiencies and potential savings,” said Jerry Leong, executive vice-president of business development at Fleet Complete. “TELUS Fleet Tracker has been a successful product for years and with the added insurance offering, it is an even more compelling choice for customers looking to better manage their fleets. Fleet Complete is also proud to be one of the first to offer this solution with a Canadian insurance leader.”
