Mercedes PRO Portal

Mercedes PRO Portal.

Before the vehicles can be administered in the Vehicle Management Tool, they must be created in the Mercedes PRO Portal. Certain vehicle information such as the model, fuel type or transmission type is automatically transferred to the Vehicle Management Tool using the chassis number, and can be viewed there.

Vehicle Management Tool

Vehicle Management Tool.

The fleet manager obtains an overview of the entire fleet via the Vehicle Management Tool . Depending on the need and the services subscribed to, the manager can filter out precisely the information that is particularly important. He/she is e.g. informed about impending vehicle servicing dates, is able to ascertain the vehicle's location and can therefore allocate assignments more efficiently. In addition the manager is able to view already completed journeys and transfer the next orders to the Mercedes PRO connect App4. This supports forward-looking maintenance planning as well as efficient operational planning.

The Mercedes PRO connect App4 provides easy communication between fleet manager and driver4. For example, important order and vehicle data are sent directly to the driver's4 smartphone. In addition, he also has the option to assign a vehicle to himself using the app.

MBUX multimedia system

MBUX multimedia system.

The MBUX multimedia system turns the vehicle into your personal assistant while on the road. With the help of high-resolution touchscreens and the self-learning voice control system, the driver can intuitively access communications and information functions, as well as the navigation system and media sources. Thanks to the current navigation data and early warning messages in real time, it arrives both safely and reliably at the destination.
