As the market leader in UK & France for over 20 years, Masternaut has developed the devices, platform and infrastructure to make every commercial fleet smarter. We process hundreds of millions of messages every day in real-time, and help thousands of customers transform complex data into tangible business impact.

what is telematics

Telematics is the process of transmitting data from a vehicle or mobile asset, using mobile phone technologies, to a data centre.

Masternaut's CANBus tracking devices read vehicle information and transfer this data over a wireless network. Our smarter fleet platform CONNECT then transforms it all into meaningful information on one screen.

Customers use our telematics devices and platform to make smarter decisions about safety, savings, service excellence and sustainability.

smarter software

Masternaut’s leading platform CONNECT bridges the gap between complex data and ease of use by offering:

  • A dashboard that displays fleet activity at a glance
  • An online view of all vehicles, on a single map
  • Reports that can be easily understood & fully customised 
  • Fully automated timesheets and driver league tables

Connect puts the end user first, and harnesses the full calculating power of Masternaut's infrastructure to deliver an online experience that is intuitive, smooth and fast.

smarter hardware

Masternaut's devices gather data straight from a vehicle's Electronic Control Unit (ECU) through our patented, read-only CANbus technology. This enables us to provide accurate data on fuel consumption, odometer and diagnostics.

Our reader clips to the outside of a cable behind the dashboard, making it invisible to drivers and providing protection against theft & tampering. In contrast to other devices, this connection is read-only and will not affect the warranty of your  vehicle.

secure and resilient

Masternaut takes data security very seriously.

Our data centres are maintained to highest EU standards, we employ data security specialists to ensure constant protection, and never sell private information to third parties.

  • Devices are read-only and invisible to drivers, providing theft & tamper protection
  • Redundant data centres ensure resilience and seamless disaster recovery
  • Our fully controlled EU-based data centres meet the highest security standards
