PHILADELPHIA — PeopleNet and Samsung have partnered to offer PeopleNet's software solutions on off-the-shelf Samsung devices. The announcement by PeopleNet was made here at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.
Fleets will be able can to deploy proprietary company apps, approved third-party programs and PeopleNet software on the same device.
The partnership is part of PeopleNet’s broader Company-owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) mobile-device strategy to address the market need for multi-platform accessibility and enterprise mobility management.
“This solution gives drivers the flexibility to use the device on their own time, running their company-allowed personal applications, with the confidence that company work and software won’t be affected,” said Mark Kessler, general manager of trucking for PeopleNet.
The PeopleNet-supported Samsung device gives fleets the ability to manage both business and personal apps on a single device. They will also be able to remotely assist drivers with troubleshooting and support and quickly secure and remove a mobile device if needed. The home screen is also fully customizable.
