Velociti Inc. announced a new deployment as a service model at the 2014 American Trucking Association’s Management Conference & Exhibition. The customizable, subscription-based offering incorporates all the phases of a technology deployment, from project planning to post-installation repairs for the lifecycle of the solution, said the company.
“Our focus has always been on helping technology providers and fleets properly plan, implement and support technology solutions quickly, efficiently and professionally,” said Deryk Powell, president of Velociti. “Deployment as a Service spreads out up-front costs and includes lifecycle support services at a predictable cost for our customers. As industry adoption of on-board technology continues to grow at a rapid pace, Deployment as a Service ensures fleets can leverage technology solutions as quickly as possible and maximize their return on investment.”
“With so many great technology solutions available today, fleets have a lot to consider when determining what is right for their operations,” added Powell. “Up front costs to deploy on-board technology typically range from 10% to 50% of hardware costs, and maintaining the long-term health and performance of the technology is a cost that must be accounted for as well.”
Fleets can customize Velociti’s new deployment as a service model for any on-board technology investment. Available for a monthly subscription per tractor, trailer or container, the program includes project planning, installation design, hardware staging/configuration, shipping, scheduling, and installation, as well as post-installation services, including 24/7 technical support, inventory management and on-site repairs.
With Deployment as a Service, Velociti offers an extended warranty and guaranteed timeframes for completion of installations and repairs. Fleets using the service also have real-time visibility into every aspect of the program via Velociti’s project management portal, Velogic.
