Verizon has announced the integration of all of its telematics offerings under one new brand, Verizon Connect.
Former brands within Verizon’s connected vehicle portfolio including Verizon Telematics, Fleetmatics and Telogis have all been rebranded as Verizon Connect.
Fleets with vehicles that have Verizon Telematics, Telogis and Fleetmatics solutions will now be able to view all of them from the Verizon Connect platform in addition to any new vehicles with Verizon Connect solutions.
“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, chief executive officer 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.”
Verizon Connect also announced a plan to partner with Ram on the new Ram Telematics solution powered by Verizon Connect; you can read more about that here.
