Spireon is known for its suit of GPS technology-based Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions. Verizon (News - Alert) is known for its broad coverage, reliability, speed and performance.
The two companies have now joined forces to deliver a new feet management solution, called FleetLocate.
FleetLocate has been developed as a powerful, flexible and scalable information platform, designed to provide continuous real-time visibility for fleets of all sizes.
Featuring exception-base reporting, FleetLocate can improve operational efficiency and compliance by eliminating unauthorized vehicle usage, reducing fuel costs, increasing the number of loads per trailer, reducing the need and associated costs for rental trailers and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
FleetLocate also provides the business intelligence to help fleet managers improve safety and affect positive changes in driver performance.
The solution comes with an interface, which is simple to use, easy to navigate, and provides a comprehensive suite of reports designed to help businesses better manage their fleet operations and address many of the operational dilemmas they face daily.
Under the strategic agreement with Verizon, Spireon will deliver its FleetLocate solution over the Verizon Wireless (News - Alert) network.
New customers of Spireon and Verizon will be able to gain new insights in controlling their fleet costs and achieve increased ROI, the companies explained in a statement.
“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 Spireon CMO Brad Jarvis. “This new agreement immediately extends Spireon’s distribution and sales reach.”
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.
According to the terms of the agreement, Verizon and Spireon sales teams will collaborate to package FleetLocate and Verizon offerings for businesses of all sizes that operate a fleet of vehicles.
The two companies have also toured the world as part of the Verizon Connected Technology Tour, showcasing their capabilities together as well as how M2M communications can create new business opportunities.
“With Spireon, Verizon is working to advance fleet management capabilities through machine-to-machine communications,” said John Sullivan, executive director of 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 also announced the integration of Spireon’s FleetLocate real-time trailer data into the McLeod LoadMaster Enterprise system. McLeod Software is one of the leading providers of transportation management software.
