Verizon Wireless and Xata Turnpike, a division of Xata Corporation, announced the availability of Xata Turnpike’s RouteTracker fleet performance management solution to Verizon Wireless enterprise customers. Customers can get simplified billing as Xata Turnpike subscription fees are added directly to their Verizon Wireless bills.
“Enterprises across the board are looking to streamline fleet operations, both in the truck and in the office, to reduce costs and increase efficiency,” said Benigno Gonzalez, vice president-sales operations for Verizon Wireless. “Xata Turnpike’s solution on the nation’s most reliable wireless network provides our enterprise customers with a robust fleet performance management tool that optimizes operations plus the benefit of a single bill.”
Xata Turnpike’s RouteTracker device transmits Global Positioning System (GPS) and other vehicle data to a wireless phone and sends the data back to a hosted website. Verizon Wireless customers can easily access Xata Turnpike on their Verizon Wireless handsets, such as Hours of Service (HOS) tracking and logging. Xata Turnpike says it offers a flexible computing platform that enables Verizon Wireless customers to integrate fleet and driver data with other third-party applications they are using so the data can be easily collected and analyzed.
“In today’s economic environment, efficiency is everything,” said Brendan Staub, senior vice president of sales, Xata Turnpike. “Verizon Wireless customers can now take advantage of Xata Turnpike’s low-cost solution to improve fleet operations and remain HOS compliant, all without adding an additional step to their accounting processes.”
