PeopleNet, a provider of fleet mobility technology, has announced that it is partnering with Samsung Electronics to offer PeopleNet software on Samsung devices. The new mobility solution allows fleets to deploy proprietary company apps, approved third-party programs and PeopleNet software on the same device.
Partnering with Samsung is part of PeopleNet’s broader company-owned, personally enabled (COPE) mobile device strategy to address the market need for multi-platform accessibility and enterprise mobility management.
“This new mobility solution allows us to support all applications a fleet chooses to install while maintaining end-to-end responsibility for our software,” said Mark Kessler, PeopleNet’s general manager of trucking. “Given the focus and priority on retaining drivers and giving them the tools they need, this solution gives drivers the flexibility to use the device on their own time, running their company-allowed personal applications, with the confidence that company work and software won’t be affected.”
