Introducing the Mercedes PRO connect adapter
The digital, connected future of the van continues to accelerate. Mercedes PRO connect, the first professional connectivity from Mercedes-Benz, links companies with their vehicles* and works to increase your efficiency, transparency and productivity.
Experience Mercedes PRO connect
Mercedes PRO connect gives the Fleet Manager total transparency. The Vehicle Management Tool allows you to see the current and last known positions of the vehicles in your fleet. This allows you to coordinate your fleet, in real time. To aid fleet communication, you can send messages directly to the driver of the vehicle, via the Mercedes PRO driver’s app** - making your fleet more efficient.
The service data of the vehicle is also shared with the Fleet Manager. At a glance, you can see whether a vehicle is due or overdue a service. By using this feature, vehicle downtime can be reduced and servicing planned around your business.
View where your vehicles are in real time; create geofences, which inform the fleet manager if a vehicle enters or leaves a defined geographical area and create and send points-of-interest to your drivers.
Send messages, addresses and telephone numbers between Vehicle Management Tool and the driver’s Mercedes PRO Adapter quickly and conveniently while the vehicle is being loaded or unloaded **.
View your vehicles’ service status, battery, and fuel tank and receive tailor-made offers to create more transparency and help simplifying servicing.
Digital Driver’s Log
A digital list of previously made trips helps to differentiate between business trips, commutes and private journeys. Trips can be exported to .csv file format.
Overview of the status/use of the vehicles in the fleet through transfer and analysis of the vehicle data. Metrics like mileage and fleet utilisation can be analysed.
Vehicle Management Tool
The Vehicle Management Tool is the ‘control centre’. From here, vans can be coordinated clearly and deployed efficiently. It provides fleet managers/dispatchers with all the functions necessary to drive their business forward even more productively and to identify and implement potential savings. The Vehicle Management Tool also ensures compliance with data protection requirements.
Mercedes PRO Adapter App and Adapter
The Mercedes PRO Adapter App** is used by the driver to exchange information with the fleet manager via the Vehicle Management Tool. The app allows important vehicle and work related information to be called up. Trips made can be displayed to the driver in a transparent manner and can be exported to a .csv file.
*Mercedes PRO connect adapter is available for the Vito 639 from 11/2010 production onwards and for the Sprinter from 2006 production onewards. **Use of the Mercedes PRO Adapter App services (such as vehicle communication) while driving is not permitted.
