Verizon launched Verizon Connect, the completed integration of its existing connected vehicle division, Verizon Telematics, with recently acquired fleet and mobile-workforce management software companies, Fleetmatics and Telogis, under a single, combined brand. The new brand is the culmination of more than $5 billion in investments, and puts 3,500 dedicated employees in 15 countries with nearly 20 years of telematics, mobile workforce and fleet management expertise behind what Verizon calls “a one-stop approach to connected vehicle software solutions and services that help drive safety, productivity and efficiency.”
Verizon Connect provides the connectivity and data insights to enable its customers to be more informed about vehicle and worker location, efficiency, safety, productivity and compliance. Customers also benefit from the combined experience of 3,500 dedicated professionals and nearly 20 years of telematics, mobile workforce and fleet management expertise.
“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, CEO 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 recognize and reward their safest drivers, just to name a few.”
The Verizon Connect 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.
