Ram Commercial will offer a comprehensive telematics package from Verizon Connect on select Ram commercial vehicles as part of a partnership with the connected vehicle provider announced at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

The solution, Ram Telematics powered by Verizon Connect, is a telematics and mobile workforce management software platform. It will help customers save money, increase driving safety, and improve operations by providing critical information businesses of any size can use to optimize their fleets, according to Verizon Connect.

Ram Telematics powered by Verizon Connect will be available this year on new Ram trucks and can also be installed on select 2015 model year and newer light-duty, heavy-duty and chassis cab trucks. Ram Telematics will also be available on Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City commercial vans later this year.

“Combining a high-quality, reliable Ram truck experience with improved end-customer and employee experience is a game changer for a fleet business of any size,” said Susan Heystee, senior vice president of worldwide OEM sales at Verizon Connect. “This technology can give businesses the tools to make a significant impact on their productivity, efficiency and bottom line.”
