Spireon Inc., a provider of mobile resource management and business intelligence solutions, announced a strategic relationship with Verizon to deliver its FleetLocate fleet management solutions, allowing businesses of all sizes with fleet operations to better manage their mobile business by combining Spireon’s GPS business intelligence platform and the Verizon Wireless network.
“Working together, we can advance the way fleet owners are connected to their mobile assets and gain real-time actionable business intelligence delivered through Spireon’s information platform and the Verizon Wireless network,” said Brad Jarvis, Spireon chief marketing officer. “This new agreement immediately extends Spireon’s distribution and sales reach.”
Spireon will certify and combine its capabilities with the Verizon Wireless network to deliver new M2M solutions. Together, Verizon and Spireon sales teams will work side-by-side to package FleetLocate and Verizon offerings for any size business that operates a fleet of vehicles.
“With Spireon, Verizon is working to advance fleet management capabilities through machine-to-machine communications,” said John Sullivan, executive director, machine-to-machine platform for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “In addition to Verizon’s holistic solutions, Verizon customers benefit from a growing ecosystem of technology partners we work with to develop a wide range of industry-specific opportunities. Our relationship with Spireon is an example of how Verizon brings together best-of-breed capabilities to meet our customer requirements.”
Spireon has developed a specialized team of sales, professional services and installation experts around the FleetLocate program, including opening a new call center dedicated to supporting and servicing FleetLocate’s Verizon customers around the clock. “By bundling our solution with Verizon’s network, both companies will be able to deliver the utmost quality and reliable technology cost effectively,” Jarvis said. “New customers of Spireon and Verizon will be able to gain new insights in controlling their fleet costs with a focus on increasing ROI.”
