ViriCiti and Sileo partner up to offer Sileo customers top-class telematics and customer support

12 July 2021, Amsterdam / Salzgitter – ViriCiti, the market leader in telematics for electric vehicles in Europe and North America, and Sileo, a manufacturing pioneer of highly efficient battery-electric buses for public transport vehicles, announce that they have signed a partnership agreement to equip all Sileo vehicles distributed in Central Europe with ViriCiti’s telematics system. This system was already integrated into the first vehicles last month.

Powerful AI-powered telematics 

Sileo’s product range covers all battery-powered vehicle types customarily used for public transport – from midi buses to articulated buses. With ViriCiti’s best-in-class telematics system pre-installed in their electric buses, Sileo now offers its customers a tool to centralize their operation, increase efficiency and transparently display the range. The customers can also benefit from ViriCiti’s top-rated customer support.

Thanks to its open architecture based on API connections, ViriCiti is able to enrich vehicle and charger data with both static data, such as route data, as well as dynamic data, coming from ITCS, CAD-AVL, Depot Management and other systems. This unlocks unique opportunities for Sileo users, ranging from Smart Charging to Smart Driving.

Telematics solutions are becoming imperative for getting the best out of electric fleets. We’re happy to now support Sileo with our end-to-end telematics platform, that will surely help Sileo customers get new insights into their fleet and optimize their operation.” – Alexander Schabert, CCO, ViriCiti

Together with ViriCiti, we want to take data analysis in AfterSales to a new level. Reacting earlier, predicatively perceiving anomalies in order to offer our customers optimized availability. That is our claim, which is why we are looking forward to the cooperation with ViriCiti.” – Sven Bohnstedt, Head of Sales, Sileo
