Qualcomm announced the first OmniVision Metro service offering, Service Fleet Manager. This new offering is designed to meet the unique needs of local service-based businesses that are centered in metropolitan areas and have mobile resources,
such as plumbing companies, pest control services, electrical contractors and landscaping companies.
The OmniVision Metro service provides customers with visibility into their mobile assets via management dashboards driven by data from in-vehicle GPS hardware for improved workforce and asset management, routing and scheduling. Companies can identify the
location of vehicles, monitor vehicle use, analyze and manage asset costs and increase overall operational efficiency and productivity.
Service Fleet Manager incorporates industry-specific capabilities and features, including detailed maps and reports that provide a snapshot of an entire fleet for improved logistical planning. The OmniVision Metro service provides a unique, Web-based dashboard display that converts data into easy-to-use business intelligence.
"There is no shortage of companies selling 'dots on a map,' but there is a shortage of companies willing to invest in the service, support and training resources required to take care of the customer for the long term," said Bert Gillespie, director of sales for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. "Qualcomm's OmniVision Metro service illustrates our commitment to providing reliable, simple and responsive services that will help improve our local service fleet customers' businesses so they can focus on what they do best, without the need for them to learn what we do best."
