A vital element in achieving the best possible total cost of operation for fleet managers and small business operators alike is the ability to instantly communicate or make real-time adjustments to routes.

Stellantis is launching MyTasks, a tool for fleet managers that enables real-time communication, task assignment and status updates with drivers in the field via the vehicle’s built-in infotainment unit – taking the cell phone out of the equation. And, managers do not need aftermarket accessories, enhancing efficiency and safety.

The application, MyTasks, is a new tool that allows managers and drivers to communicate and update tasks using wireless technology. This tool will be available on existing Stellantis vehicles that have the necessary communication technology and infotainment units.

MyTasks provides an online portal for fleet managers or dispatchers to assign tasks or modify schedules for individual drivers. Drivers receive immediate notifications of assignments through a message on the vehicle’s infotainment screen. The system also enables drivers to send their assigned destination to the vehicle’s navigation system for routing and gives dispatchers the status of each task.

Free2move plans to include this service in its commercial offerings, complementing existing solutions such as Preventive Maintenance and Connect Fleet. The service can also be integrated with all B2B partners that already have a tool to plan daily fleet activities via API. Pro One, the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, will be the first to offer this technology.

MyTasks will be available in Europe on compact and mid-size vans from the Citroën, Fiat Professional, Opel, Peugeot, and Vauxhall brands in the first half of this year. By the end of the year, the service will be expanded to large vans and compatible passenger cars in Europe and commercial vehicles in North America.

As part of Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, the company is committed to using advanced technology to improve vehicle safety and keep drivers informed. Stellantis is developing three new technology platforms, STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit, and STLA AutoDrive, which will be launched starting in 2024.

The STLA Brain is the core of Stellantis’ transformation towards customer-centric services. It’s designed to offload computing power to the cloud and support augmented reality

“A breakthrough tool like MyTasks is the result of when we put our customers’ needs above all else,” says Stellantis chief software officer Yves Bonnefont. “We know that our B2B customers value efficiency and safety for their drivers and their fleets and we are using the capabilities built into our vehicles to cut down on the potential distractions and deliver key information to make their job easier.”

The project is being rolled out in Europe with the USA to follow later this year and South Africa only in 2025.
