Fleet-based companies understand the need to know the location of their vehicles and how far away from a delivery or job their people are, but before the advent of fleet management software, managers issued paper routes and called their drivers as they moved from location to location. Today, Wolf Line Construction based in North Charleston, South Carolina, uses Verizon Connect Reveal and Verizon Connect integrated video to easily locate crew members and help promote the safety of their drivers, all from one screen in the back office or from a mobile device.
Donte Allen, fleet manager at Wolf Line Construction, a company that specializes in the installation of fiber optic cable in primarily rural communities, stated Verizon Connect Reveal enables the company to accurately see where crews are in near-real time. This helps increase management efficiency, and decrease fuel consumption, miles driven, and time spent in the field.
“In addition, Verizon Connect integrated video has helped us address unsafe driving right away so we can help our drivers make safe choices, whether they’re out on busy highways or quiet country roads," he said.
The Verizon Connect fleet management platform ensures customers like Wolf Line can identify ways to promote driver safety, save money, and better serve customers, according to Kevin Aries, head of global product success at Verizon Connect.
“From managing vehicle maintenance and meeting compliance mandates, to driving more efficient routes and rewarding the best drivers, Verizon Connect delivers the information that helps customers improve their operations and their bottom line," Aries explained.
