Keyless Vehicle Access via Smartphone and Bluetooth Enables More Efficient Commercial Vehicle Management


Physical vehicle keys have the disadvantage of not always being where the driver needs them. This is often the case with commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses, which are usually operated by more than one person. The same holds true for vehicles that are managed by fleets and rental services or serviced by repair facilities.

Keyless vehicle transfer makes this much easier because vehicles can easily be opened and started with a smartphone app. This offers a number of advantages including more efficient driver changes, mechanic’s access during the driver’s rest period, secure and smooth rental handovers independent of opening hours, and easy link to the company’s IT systems for streamlined vehicle access and usage information. On top of that, virtual key handovers are very hygienic because physical contacts are minimized.
