Verizon Connect has introduced Verizon Connect Fleet for Government, a platform with features that can help federal, state, and local agencies run safer fleets, gain greater insight into operations and fleet maintenance, and better communicate with workers and first responders in the field.

Verizon Connect Fleet for Government is designed to meet the specific workforce management needs of government customers, including vehicle inspection automation, asset visibility and management, and tools designed to simplify and streamline processes.

“Operations and fleet managers want to run safer fleets, get detailed insights into their operations, and receive alerts to schedule vehicle maintenance,” said Erin Cave, vice president of product management at Verizon Connect. “Verizon Connect Fleet for Government provides a powerful feature set that helps fleet managers better understand productivity in the field and drive operational efficiency.”

Verizon Connect Fleet for Government can help maximize vehicle uptime with automated vehicle fault code notifications and service schedule reminders, improve driver safety with dashboards and driver scorecards, and monitor vehicles, assets, and worker activity with the Verizon Connect Spotlight mobile companion application. 

Customers can also opt for enhancements including: high precision tracking, which enables operations managers to more quickly locate vehicles and assets; law enforcement light bar alerts, which enable law enforcement agencies to avoid driver penalties for driving behavior while the light bar is on, including excessive speeding, harsh braking and acceleration and excessive idling; driver vehicle inspection report (DVIR) with verified walk-around tracking, which can help eliminate paperwork, improve compliance, and streamline communication between drivers and mechanics; and Verizon Connect Share which allows agencies to share near real-time vehicle locations with third parties to help first responders and emergency response teams operate beyond the boundaries of their own fleets and workers.

Verizon Connect Fleet for Government also uses some of the most open, commonly used web APIs to be able to bring data from Verizon Connect into existing software systems, including AssetWorks.

Visit Verizon Connect in the expo hall at the Government Fleet Expo and Conference, taking place June 17-20 in New Orleans.
