Fleet Complete had discussed the integration of plug-and-play harnesses for quite some time. Several years ago, they began their automation journey by deploying a full-time equivalent (FTE) device, facilitating automation tasks related to detecting harnesses and other essential operations. However, they realized that a more efficient solution was needed to remain competitive. 


Challenges and Goals

When implementing driver ID and Buzzer systems in the European region area, Fleet Complete ran into a number of obstacles. These challenges included: 

  • Complex installation processes. Traditional installation methods involved complex wiring and connections, resulting in time-consuming and error-prone installations.  
  • Competency requirements. Installing immobilizers as a critical security system component demanded specialized skills and expertise, posing resource allocation and training challenges. 
  • Need for simplicity and efficiency. The partners sought a solution to simplify installation, reduce downtime, and enhance overall efficiency. 

Implementation and Results

To combat these issues, Fleet Complete launched a project to use plug-and-play harnesses, which make driver ID and Buzzer systems easier to set up. This is how the actual implementation went down: 

  • Research and Selection. Fleet Complete conducted in-depth research into the variety of plug-and-play harnesses on the market, taking into account factors like compatibility and ease of integration with preexisting automotive security systems. The company’s harnesses were chosen because of Ruptela’s assurance of high quality and dependability. 
  • Plug-and-Play Installation. Partners redesigned their installation process to incorporate plug-and-play harnesses, simplifying the steps involved. The standardized connectors and preconfigured wiring of the harnesses allowed for quick and easy integration, reducing installation time and minimizing the risk of errors. 

The harnesses used for the plug-and-play installation process are as follows:

Efficiency and Operational Improvements

With the implementation of plug-and-play harnesses, partners experienced significant benefits: 

  • Saving on installation costs: The use of plug-and-play harnesses eliminates the need for additional buzzer installations, reducing expenses. Moreover, the installation of RFID readers becomes cheaper and faster, contributing to overall cost reduction. Additionally, the simplified truck installation process saves time and resources.

  • Streamlined operations. Implementing plug-and-play harnesses minimizes the manual work required in the operations department. Installers no longer need to contact the Technical Support or Fulfilment team for device reconfiguration, saving time and eliminating potential delays. Similarly, customers can disable buzzers or immobilizers without contacting Technical Support, giving them more control over their devices. 
  • Universal device configuration: The use of plug-and-play harnesses allows for a single device configuration that is suitable for all use cases. This standardized approach simplifies the installation and management process, reducing complexity and potential errors. 


The successful implementation of plug-and-play harnesses in the European region demonstrated Fleet Complete’s commitment to innovation and efficiency in automotive operations. By leveraging standardized connectors and preconfigured wiring, they achieved notable improvements in installation time, cost reductions, and resource allocation. This use case highlights the potential of plug-and-play harnesses in streamlining automotive operations and reducing reliance on external technical support. Fleet Completesexperience serves as an example for other regions, showcasing the benefits of harness automation and its positive impact on the industry as a whole.
