Verizon Telematics has rebranded as Verizon Connect, marking its completed integration of a connected vehicle division with two recently acquired fleet and mobile workforce management software companies.
Verizon Connect has made more than $5 billion in investments to provide a wide range of fleet customers with connectivity and data insights about vehicle and worker location, efficiency, safety, productivity and compliance. Verizon Connect says its customers also benefit from the combined experience of 3,500 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 includes fleet and mobile workforce management software platforms, embedded OEM hardware, and Hum by Verizon, a connected vehicle device for consumers.
