Verizon says its Networkfleet solution is now available on the Verizon Wireless network, giving fleet managers a robust telematics platform for monitoring their vehicles' fuel efficiency and other key metrics.
‘As one of the largest commercial fleet operators in the United States, Verizon recognizes the challenges and opportunities associated with managing fleets, and we continue to shape our offerings to help customers turn rolling assets into a competitive business advantage,’ says David Small, senior vice president and chief platform officer for Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
Networkfleet was developed by Hughes Telematics, which Verizon acquired last year. The tool's first major deployment will be within Verizon's own fleet, with about 18,000 vehicles being connected to the platform.
The telematics solution combines in-vehicle hardware and a Web-based application to store, view and analyze data on specific vehicles, as well as overall fleet performance. Vehicles are equipped with a GPS device that sends information to the Networkfleet Data Center over a secure wireless network.
