Telecommunications firm Verizon has launched a new connected vehicle and mobile resource management brand.

Verizon Connect brings together Telogis and Fleetmatics, which Verizon acquired in 2016, with the previous Verizon Telematics operation.

It aims to offer customers a one-stop approach to connected vehicle software solutions and services, enabling them to be more informed about vehicle and worker location, efficiency, safety, productivity and compliance.

Services include comprehensive fleet and mobile workforce management software platforms, embedded OEM hardware, and Hum by Verizon, a connected vehicle device designed to create a safer, smarter and more connected driving experience.

The firm says customers benefit from the combined experience of 3,500 dedicated professionals and nearly 20 years of telematics, mobile workforce and fleet management expertise.

Verizon Connect CEO Andres Irlando said: “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 recognise and reward their safest drivers, just to name a few.”
