Toyota Australia has launched its new Toyota Halo fleet management platform that uses connected vehicle technologies and near real-time data to help business customers optimize their fleet operations and improve efficiency.

Developed in partnership with Australian fleet management software specialist Fleetsu, Toyota Halo is designed to provide a fully integrated connected platform.

"Toyota is further developing its connected vehicle technology to provide high levels of safety and convenience to all customers," said Sean Hanley, Toyota Australia vice president of sales, markaeating and franchise operations.

The connected vehicle technology will help companies in Australia manage their fleet operations by using near real-time data “to efficiently and effectively run and control fleet operations and help reduce business costs," said Hanley.

The Toyota Halo platform offers a developing suite of features to process extensive data from thousands of vehicles through near-real time vehicle monitoring, helping increase fleet productivity and improve time and cost efficiencies.

Toyota Halo is compatible with most Toyota models from 2019 production onwards, including Camry, CH-R, Corolla, Fortuner, Granvia, HiAce, HiLux, Kluger, Prado, Prius, Prius V, RAV4 and Yaris.

Toyota Halo initially will be available for larger national fleet customer, then rolled out through Toyota dealerships in the first half of 2022.
