Verizon integrates fleet and mobile workforce brands

Verizon has integrated its three fleet and mobile workforce management software companies under a single brand – Verizon Connect.

Verizon Telematics, Fleetmatics and Telogis have been brought together to create a portfolio of solutions and services includes comprehensive fleet and mobile workforce management software platforms, embedded OEM hardware, and Hum by Verizon, a connected vehicle device that helps create a safer, smarter and more connected driving experience for consumers.

“One of the things we’re most proud of at Verizon Connect is the potential our current and future technologies have for massive societal impact,” said Andrés Irlando, chief executive of Verizon Connect.

“We’re working with customers to maintain cold chain integrity and keep perishable items safe during transport, routing customers’ vehicles more efficiently to reduce emissions, monitoring vehicle diagnostics to improve fuel efficiency, and providing a gamification app that helps customers recognise and reward their safest drivers, just to name a few.”
