Verizon Connect launch as Connected Vehicle Solution
The result of more than $5 billion investments, the new brand brings together the knowledge and software of three recently acquired companies under the one roof. The former brands within Verizon’s connected vehicle portfolio including Verizon Telematics, Fleetmatics and Telogis have all been rebranded as Verizon Connect., offering a one-stop approach to connected vehicle software solutions.
Verizon Connect provides the connectivity and data insights to enable its customers to be more informed about vehicle and worker location, efficiency, safety, productivity and compliance. Verizon Connect customers also benefit from the combined experience of 3,500 dedicated professionals and nearly 20 years of telematics, mobile workforce and fleet management expertise.
“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. 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.”
- Andrés Irlando, CEO of Verizon Connect.
The Verizon Connect portfolio of solutions and services includes comprehensive fleet and mobile workforce management software platforms, embedded OEM hardware, and Hum by Verizon, a connected vehicle device that helps create a safer, smarter and more connected driving experience for consumers.
