Verizon has launched Verizon Connect: the completed integration of its existing connected vehicle division with two recently acquired fleet and mobile workforce management software companies under a single, combined brand.

It is the culmination of more than $5 billion in investments, and offers customers a one-stop approach to connected vehicle software solutions and services that aim to drive safety, productivity and efficiency.

It sees former brands within Verizon’s connected vehicle portfolio including Verizon Telematics, Fleetmatics and Telogis have all been rebranded as Verizon Connect.

Andrés Irlando, CEO of Verizon Connect, 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 recognize and reward their safest drivers, just to name a few.”

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.
