Verizon Connect has announced three new commercial solutions: a new solution for asset tracking, an improved Workforce Mobile application and the Verizon Connect Marketplace.

Asset tracking technology

Verizon Connect announced that it will offer a new device for trailers and other powered and non-powered assets that provides near-real-time location alerts. According to the company, the new device also alerts fleet managers in the event of significant changes to the asset’s temperature, tilt, vibration, shock, humidity, light and pressure. With secure wireless data encryption, settings are configured over the air. The device can also be recharged via USB and has a low-power processor, extending its battery life.

Workforce Mobile application

Verizon Connect announced enhancements to its Workforce Mobile application. The app lets users view upcoming jobs, mark jobs as complete, coordinate with the back office and obtain customer signatures all in one place. Additionally, users can complete job forms electronically, including adding photos or a customer signature for proof of service, assign vehicles and access driver and vehicle inspection reports. The Workforce Mobile application is included with any Workforce subscription, and will be available in early 2019 on iOS and Android devices.

Commercial Marketplace solution

Verizon Connect also announced the creation of its Marketplace, which the company says will enable users to deploy partner solutions, offering one-click ordering and activation of new products from various partners in the fuel, maintenance, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) industries as well as detailed descriptions and support information for all solutions.

As part of Verizon Connect Marketplace, a new vision and camera category was also launched to help keep drivers safer and decrease accident rates. This solution captures events including following distance and lane departure, and provides Proof Of Delivery (POD) and monitors cargo as well as driver ID/access to the vehicle. These events are enhanced with video that Verizon Connect Fleet already captures and mobile access to these video clips is available via applications such as Verizon Connect Coach and Spotlight, the company said. Verizon Connect Marketplace is available now and the vision and camera platform will be available early 2019.
