The Association of Equipment Management Professionals Education Foundation (AEMPF) has released a how-to book for fleets seeking the correct methods to integrate and adopt telematics into their fleet operations.

Telematics for Fleet Managers, written by well-known industry researcher/writer Georgia Krause, is a collaboration of effort from leaders in the world of telematics for heavy equipment, including equipment managers in AEMP’s Technology Committee, John Deere, AT&T, and others. AT&T underwrote the funding for the publication.

“AEMP has been the industry driver for telematics integration and adoption since 2008, when it developed the industry’s first standard for telematics. And recently AEMP collaborated with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers in pushing for an ISO Standard for V2, the latest iteration of the standard now referred to as the AEM/AEMP Telematics Standard. A how-to book for fleet-intensive companies wanting to reap the benefits of telematics is a natural next step,” said Jason Milligan, Director of Service at Southeastern Equipment Company and a major contributor to the text.

The book is a definitive guide for equipment managers. AEMP Telematics for Fleet Managers will help an equipment manager find a starting point, define data sources, show you how to interpret the data and make the data useful in real-world ways while gaining a deeper understanding of telematics in construction vehicles. The book also equips the equipment manager with the knowledge needed to discuss details with different telematics providers. A step-by-step Proof of Concept process is included to assist in assessing a fleet’s needs and to find the right system for each respective organization.

The publication is now available from AEMP either as a PDF or in print. It is also offered in Spanish. To order Telematics for Fleet Managers go to
