"We chose Frotcom to manage KTEL Heraklion-Lasithi's fleet and couldn't be more satisfied. Its advanced driving behavior analysis module has been of great use to us, allowing us to improve our drivers' driving behavior and thus reduce fuel consumption. We are now creating a new mobile app and counting on Frotcom to help us implement an arrival time feature so that our passengers can know when the bus will arrive at their stop."
