Heavy-duty: October US used truck average retail sales price defied expectations
Platform Science says it has partnered with Samsung Electronics America to support fleet organizations which are providing drivers with ruggedized enterprise-level mobile devices, instead of having them use their own smartphone or rely on in-vehicle computers. Platform Science’s Remote Platform Management (RPM) and Samsung’s ruggedized tablets offer optimal mobility experience to Werner Enterprises, the companies say.
By pairing Samsung’s mobile devices with Platform Science’s RPM products, the companies say fleets can transform their ruggedized devices into customized computing tools. Designed specifically for the transportation industry, Platform Science says RPM enables enterprise fleets to connect and manage devices, apps data and vehicles. RPM combines the functionality of mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM) and device-to-vehicle connectivity natively built into the Platform Science open telematics platform, the company says.
Werner Enterprises says that by Q1 of 2021, Platform Science technology will be integrated within Werner’s fleet of nearly 8,000 trucks through Werner’s tablet-based telematics solution, Edge Connect.
