What is Kinesis?
Kinesis is a GPS Vehicle Tracker that is perfect for every size of vehicle due to the range of fleet metrics it provides. Using Kinesis you can gain insight into Driver Behaviour and Vehicle Performance, which you can then use to make improvements. The Kinesis system can be linked with your Fuelwise Fuel Cards, providing you with accurate MPG reports. Research amongst our customers who use this feature has found that linking Telematics and Fuel Cards can lead to a 20% annual reduction in fleet costs.
What is ATOM?
ATOM is a self-install Telematics device that intuitive and easy to use. The key feature of the ATOM system is that it can be switched between different vehicles which helps to eliminate vehicle downtime. Installation doesn’t require any training or technical knowledge and can be completed in a short amount of time. Like the Kinesis GPS Tracker, the ATOM system is managed using Velocity.
While both Kinesis and ATOM share many of the same features there are some differences. We touched on the most obvious difference above, being that while you can self-install the ATOM device, the Kinesis device requires installation from qualified professionals.

Choosing the right system
As you will have found out above, the Kinesis system provides more detail and metrics than ATOM.
