ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- In partnership with Ford Motor Company and its launch of the all-new 2015 Ford Transit line of vans -- the company's largest, most significant commercial vehicle launch in its history -- Telogis is showcasing the Ford Crew Chief powered by Telogis factory-fit telematics solution in each of Ford's national, 19-city "Truth About Transit" tour stops.

Telogis is the exclusive technology provider behind Ford Crew Chief, the market-leading, light-duty commercial telematics solution that comes factory-fit in Ford's lineup of 2015 Transit vans as well as its complete line of commercial light-duty trucks. Ford Crew Chief powered by Telogis helps fleet managers and commercial vehicle owners reduce costs, improve driver safety and optimize operations.

The "Truth About Transit" national tour will continue on to Charlotte, N.C. and Detroit next week and then on to more cities across the U.S. through October. The Transit tour provides commercial customers with an exclusive opportunity for fleet owners, commercial customers and dealers to drive and experience the 2015 line of Transit vans and receive demonstrations and information on Ford Crew Chief powered by Telogis.

Ford Crew Chief offers access to exclusive Ford diagnostic data that helps customers control costs, improve driver safety and optimize operations, making it an essential part of any Ford commercial vehicle purchase. With the Telogis platform, Ford Crew Chief also delivers reports, alerts, dashboards and scorecards derived from data such as location, vehicle health/maintenance, driver behavior and other key information about the vehicle and the manner in which it's driven.

"The 2015 Ford Transit, America's newest Built Ford Tough van, will no doubt become an essential part of any commercial fleet, and with Ford Crew Chief powered by Telogis added in, customers receive a whole new level of visibility into their daily operations," said Bill Frykman, manager, business and product development at Ford Motor Company.
