Benefits and Insights
Key differentiators & advantages of Verizon Connect
- Unify Customer Data: Existing and new customer data is all brought together under Verizon Connect Work’s interface. Additional customer details can also be added from here.
- Increase Visibility: With fleet tracking software, users can get a high-level overview of their deployed fleets, workers and more. Increased visibility helps users leverage resources with existing assets in the field.
- Gain Control Over Chaos: Connects people to vehicles and equipment. Field service software is built for controlling the multitude of assets that are common in the industry — from human capital to vehicles and tools.
- Maintain Compliance: With the advent of the Electronic Logging Device Mandate (ELD) in 2017, all commercial vehicles need to be compliant. Verizon’s Connect software is compliant with logging devices, and even presents a mobile interface for checking driver logs.
Verizon Connect, formerly known as Fleetmatics Work, serves the field service industry. Major clients for Verizon Connect include Schneider, Capital Crane, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, Zayo and National HME.
- Mobile/Web-based Capabilities: The solution presents web-based maps which are accessible from anywhere on any device that has an internet connection. Drivers and supervisors can see the same things a back office manager does.
- Easy-to-use Dashboards: Trends and developments are segmented by team, department, or spread across the entire enterprise. These dashboards also let users and decision makers view KPI progress or budgets — all with live updates.
- Fast Reporting: Regular paper forms are quickly converted into electronic, user-completed assets that can be resolved on-the-go. These reports can also be automated, enriching data pools back at the office.
- Fast Routing: Verizon Connect Work software automatically determines the quickest route from point A to point B. On top of simple routing, the solution optimizes routes and orders for the entire day’s work, saving field workers time and money.
- Cost Awareness: Essential to any business that operates in the field service space, knowing fixed and variable costs — and then optimizing the day around them — is something that the product does within seconds.
