Pocket Fleet (for fleet managers)
At RIO, we know that fleet managers are not always at their desk. For that reason, we have developed the free Pocket Fleet telematics app, which allows you to manage your fleet on the go. With Pocket Fleet, you can keep constant track of all your vehicles and drivers, together with the most important status information (depending on the booking).

It is also possible to use many location-based features from RIO without our RIO Box. All you need for this is an Android smartphone and our 4Drivers app. Turn your smartphone into a virtual RIO box by simply downloading this from the Android Play Store.

Can I also manage my drivers?

You can book and cancel the services on a daily basis.

How do I pay for the services I book?

Services can be paid for by credit card and SEPA direct debit.

What is the Customer Centre?

The Customer Centre provides you with an overview of the services booked, your documents and your activities on Marketplace. Under payment type, you can view your current payment type and change it if you like .
Not every user has access to the Customer Centre. The rights assigned to a user by the administrator determine whether a user can gain access to the Customer Centre.

Do I receive an invoice on a daily basis?

All our services can be cancelled on a daily basis in the Customer Centre on the RIO platform. You will also find an overview of the services you have booked there.

Do I need to remember to terminate contracts if I sell a vehicle?

No, you don’t. All you need to do is remove the sold vehicle from your virtual fleet on the RIO platform. RIO will then automatically cancel the services.

Is there the option of transferring an existing contract to a new vehicle?

Unfortunately, that is not possible, as the data is linked to the VIN. However, you can always cancel the service for the old vehicle and then add the service for the new vehicle.
